Handmade T-shirt Blanket made from Raleigh’s old t-shirts, blanket and receiving blankets…

This is my first attempt at any kind of blanket, patch work or quilt. I sewed this blanket with a sewing machine and tread. I cut the t-shirts into equal squares and then cut the blankets to fit around. I had a great time with this project. However, it feels good to be done!

I just winged this one…not measuring very carefully, but I have learned. The next blanket, which will be for Shon will be a bit more precise.

Now, I have all those memories, smells and feelings all rolled up into a blanket he can use and keep forever.

thank you for looking…
