Quilted Tee Shirt Memory Blanket

By:

Envelop yourself in all your favorite memories with this Quilted Tee Shirt Memory Blanket.  Perfect for showcasing all your favorite sporting, music, or theater shirts, this t shirt quilt makes for a lovely (and useful) memory keeper.  This would be a wonderful gift to give a college or high school graduate, and is a fun way to personalize a meaningful gift.  You could even print out some photos on transfer paper and add those to the quilt as well.  One thing's for sure, this quilt made out of t-shirts is sure to be the gift that keeps on giving.

Quilted Tee Shirt Memory Blanket

Materials:

  • Cutting Mat (24" x 36")
  • Collection of old tee shirts
  • Fiskars 8" Easy Action Scissors
  • Cardboard
  • Sewing machine
  • Patterned fabric
  • Fusible backing
  • Iron

 

Instructions:

  1. I decided to make a simple cotton throw that incorporated some of her favorite t-shirts. This would also be a great project for clothes that your child has grown out of. You can make this project as elaborate or as simple was you’d like.
     
  2. I decided to take the simple approach. I used Fiskars 8" Easy Action Scissors and firm piece of cardboard to trim a 10 inch square from each t-shirt. I wasn’t worried about capturing the entire logo or name, but if you are, be sure to allow at least a 1 inch border all the way around. I find it easiest to work on a large surface, so I protect my table with Fiskars 24" x 36" Cutting Mat.
     
  3. After cutting the squares, I stitched each edge to a strip of patterned cotton. If I got off track, the seam ripper in the Fiskars Sew Taxi made it easy for me to correct my mistakes. After stitching all the squares together, I ironed on a fusible backing, then pinned the right side to the right side of a coordinating fabric. I stitched around all sides, leaving a small opening to turn right-side-out. I then hand stitched the opening closed. As this point, you can quilt the throw, or simple leave as is.
