T-Shirt Quilt

Turn your old favourite shirts into a T-shirt quilt!

Those old memorable high school and college shirts may not fit you anymore but it doesn’t mean you have to throw, give away, or turn them into a rug for them to be useful again. Instead, you can give them a more meaningful new purpose by turning them into a T-shirt quilt!

Also called a memory quilt, this sewing project is definitely a great way of turning good old memories into something tangible. You can use all those special shirts that you have – from your baseball jersey back in grade school, to your student organization shirts in university. It’s the perfect reason not to say goodbye to shirts with sentimental value!

It also makes a perfect DIY gift for birthdays, graduations, weddings, or anniversaries. So the next time your family decides to clear up their closets, you can secretly keep their old favorite shirts and give them to them as gifts in the future!
