My son Ian is heading into his Senior year at college. Where does the time go?!? He finally gave me his collection of t-shirts from his high school drama days and asked that I turn them into a throw, like I did for my daughter last year.
Here's the final product:
We went to JoAnns Fabrics today so he could pick out the fleece for the backing.
He's really happy with the throw, and it's going back to school with him when he leaves on Monday. We probably won't see him until Christmas; it's just too far to fly home for the brief Thanksgiving holiday. It is very, very strange to think that he won't be home then; it will be the first time the whole family has not been together.
Technical notes: I stabilized each t-shirt piece with fusible knit stabilizer. The pieces were then trimmed and sewn together. The fleece was simply added to the back and the layers are held together with two lines of stitch-int-the-ditch. The binding is a swimsuit lycra, cut in 2-inch strips.
