Biggest T-Shirt Memory Blanket yet! 9.5″ x 10′ !!! – with border

9.5 x 10 feet – with border

* thank you, Shon Lawhon for helping with the pictures..the blanket wouldn’t fit on our floor in the house.. it’s too big! So, we brought it outside and hung it over our storage garage.

These are a bunch of shirts that belong to my friends boyfriend.. I sewed them up into a huge cozy blanket for their daily use..

I also added the border in between the shirts. Look good, I think…

 

I also have available: Personal Digital Photo ‘squares’ .. you may inlcude any and all photos that you like to your memory blanket. You options are abundant. From collages to single photos.

You do not have to do the graphic work, I can do it. Just send me the pictures or email them to me.

 

I use sleeves and front logos as well. Any print that is on your items, I will use. You may include, sweatshirts, pants, dresses, flags, ribbons, hats, socks, button up, bags… anything fabric…

 

 

Once I recieve the shirts, they will get cut to the correct size for your shirts and things… then I will lay them out and take pictures.. front there, together we can rearrange, change how we (you ) see fit.

Until it’s perfect.

*picture: this is the back of this particular blanket.. but you may include on shirts on both sides if you have the amount needed.
