We usually give 007’s clothes and shoes away, but there are always a few that are difficult to put into the “give away” bag. They are usually the favorites that 007 wore over and over again or the ones that are connected with a memory. Switching clothes for seasons is always an emotional time for me. I know. It’s pathetic. 😉
I was looking for some creative way to keep a few without just folding them up and putting them in a box. I found lots of t-shirt quilt pins. The thing is, I didn’t have enough t-shirts for a full quilt, so this is what I decided to do…
The T-Shirt Blanket
I had a few cute little 007 t-shirts.
I cut them into squares.
Not equal squares because some of their
logos were big and some were small.
I sewed the back of the shirt to the front of the shirt.
It’s not quilting, it’s more like just making squares.
Quilting is harder.
I tip my hat to you, quilters.
Then, I sewed the squares together so that they were even.
Since I only had a few, I plan to add new ones to it each season.
When it’s large enough to cover a bed, I’ll put a backing on it.
When I showed it to 007, he hugged it and said:
“Mom, it’s wonderful. You are the best Mommy I ever had.”
He loves it: mission accomplished.
