Take your older t-shirts from your sorority, bands, sports, college, high-school, girls/boy scouts, ANYTHING.. take those t-shirt and gather them up.
You can gather: boxers, handkerchiefs, scarves, socks, fabric..anything fabric and I’ll sew them together in a unique, custom-made t-shirt blanket that you can keep forever and cherish those memories by hugging them on the couch at night.
Keepsake…Heirloom… you can even pass it down.. how sweet…
I normally ask for two weeks once I receive the shirts. However, I can finish a blanket sooner if needed.
I take pictures of every step and ask for approval before going on to the next step.
I will make the blanket however you want. Anything goes. One fixed price.
– Cutting of shirts
– Sewing, thread, time
– Fabric (if needed)
– Batting (1/2 inch padding)
I can work in payments if needed.
I accept: PayPal, Personal Check, Money Order & Trade
Please ask me anything. I am open and have fun doing this. I am approachable and flexible.
Thank you for your interest and time.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Separate the seeds of a freshly carved pumpkin from the stringy membrane. Rinse the seeds just until they are free of any membrane matter. This may take several washes and rises.
The last wash, keep the water in the bowl with the seeds and add salt.
Soak for 20 minutes.
Heat the oven to 325 degrees F.
