1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Two Huge T-Shirt Quilts on: June 08, 2011 10:48:52 AM
I love your quilt.  The band around the edges looks great!  Did you use any kind of stabilizer on the back of the t-shirts? What kind of fabric did you use as the backing and is there batting inbetween?

I didnt use any type of stabilizer (I didn't even think of it, but I didn't have too much trouble without one). I used a flannel backing because I wanted it to be warm. But I recently made another one for a friend and used just a plain cotton backing cause he said his dorm room is roasting. And I used a 1/4" loft polyester batting.

I love these! I have a small pile of shirts that I want to do this with. Can I ask about how big you cut your tshirt squares?

My squares are 12" x 12". I just used that size because I had a plastic square that size, and with a rotary cutter it was super quick to cut them all.

I had way to many tshirts lying around that I did not want to get rid of, but also wasn't going to wear... so I made a quilt! My sister liked mine so I made one for her too. The striped border is made with the backs of the shirts, so the colors match.

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / collage book cover with pattern on: July 14, 2008 12:54:34 PM
is this the right board for this? its a textbook cover made out of random pictures and contact paper. and its removable without damage to the book.



1. cut out the shape below along the outside lines. i used newspaper but any paper will work.

2. fill in the blue parts with pictures or anything you want. use glue stick to attach the pictures right to the pattern you cut out.
3.  cover the entire thing with clear contact paper and fold the flaps.  i used little metal things (cant remember what they are called) to keep my cover on the book
