T-shirt quilt DIY

tutorial t shirt blanket

What you need to make a t-shirt blanket: 

  • T-shirts (the author used probably 30-40.)
  • Lightweight fusible interfacing, just go to a fabric store like JoAnns and tell then you're making a t-shirt quilt. They'll point you in the right direction.
  • Sewing machine
  • Iron
  • Lots of rulers
  • Lightweight blanket for the middle to make the blanket thicker
  • Fabric for the back
Step 1: Make a square template (or rectangle, whatever shape) and cut out all of your t-shirts. Then take the fusible interfacing and cut out your template shape as well. Iron the t-shirt squares to the fusible interfacing. This makes sure that the t-shirts don't become too stretched when you try to sew them all together. Otherwise your shirts might not match up properly. 

Step 2: Sew all of your t-shirts together into a giant blanket. Then you can finish it however you'd like, but my mom stitched the t-shirt edges to the edges of the blanket and then made the back fabric finish the whole shebang and enclose the inner blanket and cover the outside edges.
