Concert T-Shirts into a Blanket!

For years I have been trying to get my Knight in Shining Armor to purge all his old cloths.  I’m not demanding he toss everything which doesn’t fit, or he has not worn.  I would merely like him to be a little more reasonable about the items he is choosing to cling to for dear life.  I’m not being a nagging wife; as far as I’m concerned, I’m being completely down to earth and reasonable in this situation.  Because…

  • If you have not worn something in over 2 years…
  • If you can’t remember the last time you wore it…
  • If it doesn’t fit any more…
  • If it is so old that the once WHITE T-shirt is now TAN…

Since Andy would answer YES to each of these notes above…  He should probably consider rummaging through his cloths, throwing some away (or donating them).

As you can see, I’m a little passionate about getting the clutter out of our house…  And my husband is just as passionate about his T-shirt collection, in particular, his concert T-shirts.  After negotiations transpired with the other side, both sides came to an understanding and compromise…

I’m making my dear, sweet, amazing, wonderful, and sexy husband a blanket made entirely of the T-shirts he has collected from the concert going days of his youth.

Andy gathered 25 (completely arbitrary number, honestly I didn’t count) of the most memorable and important T-shirts for this blanket (the remaining T-shirts are mysteriously OUT of the house) and with a smile on my face and a twinkle in my eye, I took a rotary cutter to each and every one of those bad boys (T-shirts).

After a few days…  Andrew got his completed blanket…
