I frequently walk 5k's for charity and have done so for a number of years. When participating, t-shirts are frequently given to the walkers. Needless to say, over the years I have collected quite a number of these shirts. That number grows yet again when you add in the t-shirts from various concerts I have attended.
In early December, I gathered approximately 50 of these shirts together. Doing some online research, I found a company that makes quilts from these t-shirts. I followed their instructions and sent off my shirts.
In doing so, I cleared up much needed space in my bedroom. I will also have a quilt of my various adventures. When I am gone, my children will be able to look at the quilt and remember me. As I see it, this was a win-win solution!
I am waiting, not so patiently, for my quilt to arrive. When it does, I will update this post. In the meantime, look around at your things. I am sure there are more creative ways to re-use and upcycle things you have into memories you can pass on. Let me know what you come up with!!
I received my quilt!! Here's a picture of my quilt!
Now I not only got rid of stacks of tshirts...I can wrap myself in memories!
