My Psychedelic Masterpiece

After making this quilt last year out of concert t shirts, I started saving cast off shirts for future projects.
I've got quite a stack of them now, and I made this little blanket out of my old tie dye shirts. (Why do I have so many tie dye shirts? I tie dye everything, remember. )

This blanket is basically throw sized, and I'm going to put it away to give to V for Christmas this year. I'm thinking I'll also make her a matching doll blanket, since she is obsessed with swaddling her babies.

I backed the blanket with soft denim. It was finished in about a day, and I didn't have to buy anything for it. I even already had the quilt batting.
Cool, huh?


  1. We had a Sunday School party at church and all of the kids tie-dyed a tee shirt - such fun!

  2. What a great way to use all those shirts & this would be the ideal outdoor concert blanket too. Thanks for linking to Craftastic Monday!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm reading some of your posts and had to stop here, to tell you that I love this quilt!
