Memory T-shirt Blanket

July 312

The inspiration of Andy’s T-Shirt blanket has caught on…  I have a stack of garbage bags full to the brim with T-shirts ready for blankets.

This is a blanket for our friend Tom…

July 313

Tom supplied me with a load of different T-shirt colors, designs, patterns, badges, and fabric.  Each in its own right, supplying me with a whole heap of inspiration for design.  After cutting all his shirts into random square sizes to capture the color, important dates and locations, symbols, and designs, I began by categorizing his T-shirts…

  • Video Games
  • Cartoons
  • Electronics
  • Sports
  • Sentimental – fuzzy feeling

Soon I was sprawled out on the dining room floor creating a haphazard design and pattern…

If you look closely; starting in the center (Cowboys tile), then circling out is a pattern for each category of T-shirt, along with an even balance of sizing, and keeping all the colors opposite one another.  The entire back of Tom’s T-shirt blanket is lined with a soft and warm heather grey anti-pill fleece.
