Amongst other sewing I managed to sneak in time to make my boys top
quilts from their old T shirts. Something they knew I was going to do as
we discussed  turning their wardrobes out at the end of summer and they
were very sad about various T shirts. Odd about these boys and their
logos and beloved phrases on T shirts isn't it?

Anyway I got them done for their christmas tree presents (in our house
that's the  one last present at the end of  christmas day, often a book
or Dvd or something odd ball or quirky, never very expensive) they
unwrapped them yesterday evening and loved them, so now I can show them
to you.
They are on my face book page or on the personal site under quilts for
my boys, if you do want a peek.

Well done!  The boys will love those enduring reminders of
the cherished bits of childhood.

My son has several t-shirts (that he tries to continue wearing,
unfortunately) that he loves - which are way too small for him. I keep
telling myself that I'll make a quilt for him, but haven't done so yet
(sigh).

Those are a nice solution to the outgrown shirts.  I thought about it
for my son, but realized that by the time he is done with his shirts,
they are no longer quilt material.
