I got a merino comforter from my sister. I've made a couple of covers for it when it belonged to her. (I'm the one with the kids so she thought I would appreciate and use it- she's right!)
I've got all the tee shirts from high school. Marching band, plays, etc.
Put them together and what do you get- a tee shirt duvet! (a duvet is a cover that goes over a comforter so you don't have to wash a big heavy blanket- just the cover!)

Looking at it, I remember that I also used some tees from early college.
I used a microfiber sheet as the back side- I really should have sprung the extra two bucks and gotten the jersey sheet! I used my snap press to add about 6 snaps to the top to close it. They are rosin snaps (used for cloth diapers- why I originally got the press) so they aren't bad to press your face against at night. My son and I were sleeping under it while he was transitioning into his bed. Its warm and soft and comfy!
I'm excited to finally have this- I've been trying to think of a way to use these tees since, well, I graduated (over 10 years ago!)
I still have more tees and my husband was complaining about how heavy the duvet was on our bed, so it looks like I'm gonna make another of these!!
The most precious thing one can make is a friend.

I tend to lick circular things.

Everytime I see one of these it makes me want to make a t-shirt quilt.  I never thought about making it a duvet though.  Well done.

This is a little easier than a blanket! I too was worried about making a blanket!

how awesome! I want to steal this idea and make my boys a blanket out of their baby shirts (it might take me yrs lol)

I love this idea! Such a good functional way of preserving memories. I've been saving t-shirts from my school years (and beyond) for this exact purpose. I don't have near enough to make a quilt yet through. When the time is right...
