Quilted Tee Shirt Memory Blanket


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



  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.

I really like this idea but I am very confused. I read the directions over three times and still can't figure it out. Maybe a video tutorial or some pictures of each step would help. I m going to have my best friend read it and maybe it will click for her.

Our friends at FaveQuilts do have a video tutorial for how to make a T-shirt quilt! Here's the link: I hope that helps!

What is the fusible backing for and what kind do you use?
