Do you use men’s shirts to make quilts?
I’ve made quite a few. The mister cleaned out his closet a while back and discarded MANY! I shoved them in bins and there they sat. I have shirts from my hubby, my son, my two sons in law, my father in law, and scraps left from my dad’s shirts. It was time to get them under control.
I finally took apart all the intact shirts. What a job! I use the sleeves, back, and the two front sides. I do not bother with collars and yokes. That’s just crazy!
Then I make stacks with all the shirt fronts in a pile, sleeves in another, and backs in another. They take up much less room this way.
I used these dies to cut up the sleeves.
I was generous with throwing away extra bits!
After a long afternoon, I ended up with this.
Doesn’t look like much, but these stacks are several inches high. My next project from these shirts will be to cut 2 1/2 inch strips from the shirt fronts. But maybe not today….
Have a good one!
