T-Shirt

Ms. C was gracious enough to supply me with items from her college years which bring to life some remarkable memories for her.

I, in turn, transformed her college memories into a memento she will experience again and again.

Ms. C’s vision for this blanket was one which brought together all the joyful experiences from world travels, Greek life, and college.

The brilliantly vibrant colors in her T-shirt choices made this blanket a complete joy to design.

You will notice with Ms. C’s blanket, I did not use my normal backing fabric.

Ms. C shipped to me fabric she collected on a trip from Nigeria.  This fabric was one large piece, which I adjusted and altered to create the back panel for the whole her blanket.  The fabric, from Nigeria, is a 100% cotton, it is not the normal thick back panel, this created a light weight blanket which can be used year round.  The resulting blanket was accomplished because I did not line the blanket with batting.  I prefer not to work with batting, I feel after wear, tear, and time the batting will rip and become frumpy.  Resulting in a client no longer be in love with their blanket, which is unacceptable in my book.

Now, with this light weight blanket, she has the ability to curl up with a steaming cup of tea, page turning novel and wrap herself in world travels, Greek life, and college.
