Little J has literally dozens of t-shirts - t-shirts from all over the world, thanks to a family in the far flung corners of the globe and our travels. I unfortunately get rather attached to them, even though like most boys they get rather grubby on the front. So upon sorting through them the other day, those which were beyond a state good enough for donation had the backs (which remain clean) cut into neat little 4 inch squares.
The ultimate recycling project has begun!
9 square blocks for a recycled t-shirt quilt!
I haven't started sewing them together yet - still many more t-shirts to chop up yet!
But I had to lay them out to get a feel for this project - so far I am liking it - but not poor old Linus who was tired and desperate for bed. Perhaps this will make him and his three sisters a lovely new bed or a nice picnic blanket for next summer?
