Project Repat: Preserve Your Running Story with a T-Shirt Quilt
Have you ever had an old t-shirt that you don’t want to let go of but you can’t wear anymore? What about all of those race t’s just taking up precious real estate in your dresser drawers that you have no idea what to do with? Well, now there is something you can do and it is honestly pretty awesome.
Project Repat takes your old t-shirts and makes them into these amazing quilts! You pick your panel size, quilt size and fleece color then you’re emailed instructions on how to send your shirts to them. Once they receive them they are made here in the US of A by those who are earning a fair wage. The t-shirts are used to then carefully craft the blanket and it’s sent back in about 2-3 weeks time!
I actually have a drawer full of old t-shirts and just ordered my blanket! I can’t wait to receive it- I’ll be sure to post an update with the finished product when I do. In the meantime, watch the video below and get inspired to preserve your story!
Pretty cool, right? Definitely would make the perfect gift for anyone who has treasured t’s that need a little recycling. If you want to learn more about Project Repat and how it got started, make sure to check out their story here!
