T-shirt blanket, because I recently got asked to make one for a charity, so I just thought I would show you guys how I made it in case. You guys ever want to make something, because I realized that they're really popular and people really love them and like now a lot of people are asking me to make them some. So, as you know, it's fun, it's cute super warm and cozy. So I figured why not show you guys so, let's just get straight to it, alright, so for this you're gonna need a bunch of t-shirts, some scissors, something to measure it and some chalk or marking tool of some sort and then you're gonna want to spread out your shirts and figure out what your layouts gonna be ended up changing mine anyway, but kind of figure it out before thing and it's good to know.
And then I went ahead and measured out twelve by twelve squares on my shirt, with keeping the logos and stuff and six on the inside of the script. Obviously, and then I went ahead and cut that out and make sure if you're using front and back of a shirt, do it separately, don't get them out at the same time, just in case and then you're gonna have squares like this and you're gonna go ahead and place them the way you want them to be placed and start pinning sections together. I did a rose first and then I sewed all those together and then I sewed the rest of them.
So I've I'm gonna do these first and sew. Those down and then sew them to each other after that which you can do columns first, it doesn't matter it whatever you want. So now, I'm gonna sew them all together to have our final square of t-shirts. So once you have that sewn down, then you're going to want to have some backing fabric of some sort. I used like blanket fabric to make it extra cozy, and then I measured out these strips of four inches by. I don't even know how long I think by sixty, but I didn't use as the whole thing, because that was way too long, but it's always good to be safe than sorry.
So I went ahead and cut those out, and these are gonna, be the strip's that outline the the t-shirts. So I placed those on the tops and bottoms first, it doesn't matter but does tops and bottoms or the side to sides. First, don't do like a top and side or anything like that, because then that looks awkward. So I went ahead and did that and sew those down and now I'm gonna add in the sides onto it and then one gets those so down. It looks like that so then I'm using this like backing stuff.
I think I literally cannot remember the name of this for the life of me right now, and I don't know why, but I added that to it. I cut it out to the size of the blanket I cut that out and then I basted it on and then I put the backing on it and left a little hole. Obviously when you're going to clip the corners once that's all sewn down and then since you left a little hole and you didn't sew it all the way down. That's where you are able to then turn it around flip it inside out and whatnot, and it took me a while.
