Woo hoo!  Got some of the owl fabric at my Hancock's!  I only got a yard, as my 3yo dd isn't wearing dresses so much anymore, so I figure I'll just be embellishing t's and putting ruffles on a skirt or some such thing.  I love the fabric, though - it's going through its prewash as I type!

>>I could sew them to a light weight non stretchy blanket (like those never very soft acrylic or whatever ones with the satin edge everyone's grandma has in the guest room)<<

That's a great idea!  And I think with tee's that aren't mainly all white, it would come out looking really cute!

Thanks, both!

good work! i like that it's different from all the other ones..and the "relax! remeber, this is FUN!" cracks me up!

All of these shirts were rowing related, and the "relax" one was for the woman who rowed behind me, who always got really nervous at races.  The shirt was for our warm-up row, and she got to look at the back of m shirt, where I'd written that message for her.  Lots of fun memories, but definitely not shirts to wear anywhere other than rowing in college! Cheesy

Gorgeous!  Any ideas on who makes the fabric or what it's called?  I'd love to call Hancock's first to see if they have it before I go - it's a 20-25 min drive.  I am very jealous of your wonderful dress!

So cute!  I love the halloween fabric!  I've bought some for the past couple of years but haven't done much with it . . . will have to think about a table runner or lap quilt, now!

Here is a quilt I made many moons ago when I was just out of college - I took a bunch of my t-shirts from my rowing days (I was on the crew team in college and we made many of our own shirts for various events - team building and all that jazz), and made this.  I sewed the t-shirts to a king-sized sheet (though didn't use the whole sheet, unfortunately - it's too long for a twin and too narrow for a bigger bed Tongue), then used another sheet for the backing and put batting in between.  I quilted "Brown Crew 1986 to 1990" on it - you can see it a little in some of the pics (the quilt is upside down on the bed in the pics - didn't think to check that before taking pics of it.

Anyway - here it is!  The whole thing (as well as I can get it into a pic)

some closer shots:

As you can see, we mostly just painted on white t-shirts.  I threw in the one teal shirt partly because I needed another shirt, and partly because I wanted a bit more color in the quilt. 

It's entirely done by hand - I was living in a small rented room at the time with almost no furniture, and definitely no sewing machine!  I didn't even think of cutting out the pictures and putting them as squares in a more traditional quilt like I've seen on here since - just separated the back and front of the various shirts and placing them in various postions on the sheet.  It was good entertainment for myself back at that point when I needed something to occupy my time . . . now I want to find the time to make stuff!!!!

Comments and critiques are welcome!
1269  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Nap mats, because my girl started "School" today! on: August 27, 2008 10:34:23 AM
Very nicely done!  I have one I made for my son, but unfortunately, as he starts K next week, they will not allow him to have it there.  They say there's not enough room, so they have to bring in "rest towels."  Oh, well.  I bought a cute towel with a little froggy on it - he likes it.

But I love your nap mat - absolutely beautiful!

Hey - for anyone interested, I googled that Simplicity pattern (along with the word "coat") and found one on e-Bay for $0.99 ($2.00 shipping).  I would get it, but it only comes in "Toddler 1" size, and I don't know how to scale the pattern up properly, so it wouldn't be any use to me.  Anyone else interested should look into it!
