This was once a t-shirt that was pretty special, but - almost 20 years later - unwearable. My pal N cut the face of the white shirt into a 12X12 square and stiffened it with some heavy fusible facing. She framed the shirt with some black home decor weight fabric. It is now a throw pillow. Love it.
This project has many applications - are you thinking about ways to preserve that early 80s Echo and the Bunneyman shirt
deteriorating in the bottom drawer?
Instead of a pillow, consider making a T-shirt Quilt from your own shirts or perhaps make a quilt from your kids sport jerseys or their baby onesies.
I found this example using university team shirts on Craftzine and this example on Refashioned Threads.
Personally, I prefer banding each shirt with fabric with a non-jersey fabric, but that is personal choice.
An intermediate to advanced sewer may want to try this log cabin t-shirt quilt.
I am working on a couple of similar projects and hope to have something to report on soon.
