    this is brilliant – my friend is giving me a tonne of old concert tshirts that he doesn’t wear anymore and i feel bad taking them from him (they have huge sentimental value) so i’ve been trying to think of something to make him with them…. this defo works:)

    What a great idea! I am a bit of a t-shirt hoard too. I must learn to quilt some day. Is it hard?

    Wow,that is so cool! A how-to would be great. My partner has around 70 t-shirts, which are all currently in their death throes and there’s far too much sentimental attachment to use them as rags.

    Ooh, could you do a how-to on this? I’ve got a lot of old t-shirts that I’ve been meaning to give new life to!
