This is just a quick post because so many of my runner friends like to have custom quilts made out of their race shirts. Others might like to have blankets made from concert or travel shirts too. This is a great idea for a gift!
This is generally a rather expensive endeavor, but I just noticed that there’s a special on Living Social from a company called Project Repat.
Here is the link for the LivingSocial Deal
The pricing is as follows:
• $45 ($70 value) for a lap-size T-shirt quilt
• $75 ($110 value) for a twin-size T-shirt quilt
• $85 ($130 value) for a full-size T-shirt quilt
Here’s some excerpts from the Living Social page:
Just because you’ve moved beyond your graphic tee-wearing days, that doesn’t mean you have to throw away the memories attached to your old wardrobe. Turn those cherished items into a one-of-a-kind quilt with this deal…
Collect your favorite old tees — think shirts from college, sports teams, family reunions, and more — and send them to this innovative company in the large envelope they provide you, along with instructions. In two to three weeks of receiving your garments, they’ll return your unique item — which you customized yourself or allowed the expert Project Repat team design for you.
