I have seen t-shirt quilts before. I was browsing online the other month and saw one made using sports shirts. This is F's last season of rec soccer so I decided I wanted to make one. Having given several of his shirts away to goodwill over the years, I went and purchased back as many as I could find. (My own little economic stimulus contribution) Adding to what I had kept/been given, here is the finished product.
The most disappointing part is that I sewed the green polka fabric around the edge for the binding, but couldn't make it work. I cut it too small, then had to cut it iff, so alas, I caved and used the pre-made binding. Plus, the stretchy material was a bear, especially for my beginning level skill, but, hey. So Betsy Ross, I am not, but I am counting on the mega-crooked seams and the not-so-straight-lines going unnoticed to the tween. (how can I squeeze one more apositive into this post?)
