Wow! - T-Shirt Blankets for $74.99
What a bargain! But, before you spend your $74.99 for 16 of your favorite t-shirts made into a blanket, (read this about difference between a quilt and blanket) think about this. How important are these t-shirts to you? Are you willing to throw those tee shirts away, and get a crappy blanket to preserve your memories?
T-Shirt quilts are a work of art. They are the scrapbook you can sleep under. You have a drawer full or a box of treasured tee shirts that you have been collecting over the years. Maybe they are school, sports or vacation shirts. You've heard about t-shirt quilts but don't have any idea about how to get one made.
There are SO many t-shirt quilt/blanket makers out there. (More on difference between a quilt and a blanket) There are good t-shirt quilts and the not-so-good results. Here are 10 of the most common mistakes made by the non-professionals, and even some professionals.
Be sure to ask your quilt-maker lots of questions and ask to view examples of their work.
Can You Believe THIS is What Some Folks Consider a T-Shirt QUILT???
There are a lot of folks out there making T-Shirt Quilts. Or rather, should I say t-shirt comforters or blankets. There is a new company out there professing to be the 'cheapest' on the web. I have had several of those 'cheap' blankets come to my shop with either the mom in tears because the t-shirts were ruined, or the recipient in tears because the 'blanket' was awful.... Whatever the issue, you just know that this 'blanket' was done poorly, and you know it will never be used or displayed in public.
