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
- 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.
