One of the fetishes my Baby Sister and I share is t-shirts. We both like t's with interesting and funny sayings and depictions. For her birthday I made her this t-shirt blanket out of shirts I've worn and now don't fit over my preggo belly, and my stash of 99 cent finds from the thrift store.
She loved it!
I made a 13" pattern out of a paper bag and saved the bottom portion of the t's after I cut them.
I then made two 4x5 square panels.
I sandwiched light weight fleece I've had in my stash for years, between the two layers and machine quilted straight lines across in both directions along the seams of the squares.
I then cut and sewed the saved bottoms into strips and used it as the binding, and made a drawstring bag for it out of another t-shirt.

I sometimes dream of glorious fabrics only to wake, run to to my stash, and realize it's time for a trip to the fabric store...

What a kind and thoughtful gift. I especially like that it's something that you both share.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
