Wrap Yourself in T-Shirt Memories with Project Repat!

Project Repat

 I mentioned a few weeks ago that I shipped a bunch of my old race t-shirts off to Project Repat so that they could turn them into a comfy quilt! Well, I just got it back in the mail the other day and I am so excited to share the final product with you! 

I was nervous at first that getting the shirts together to ship off would be kinda complicated but it was actually really simple- just three simple steps!

Step One: Order your t-shirt quilt on projectrepat.com.  Choose your panel size, quilt size and fleece color.  Panel sizes include: 8×8 (for baby clothing), 12×12 (for standard size clothing and 14×14 (for mens extra large graphic shirts).  Quilt sizes include: lap, twin, full, king and queen.  There are also a variety of fleece colors you can choose from for the back.

I choose to get the lap size blanket with the 12X12 panels and a gray fleece backing. Step one, check! On to step two. 

Step Two: I was emailed detailed instructions on exactly what was needed for my t-shirt lap blanket.  Since I ordered a lap size I was instructed that I needed 16 sides of a shirt and it could either be the front or the back or both if there were graphics on both sides. 

The instructions also noted that you need not actually cut out 12×12 panels, rather just one side of the shirt.  Here are what mine looked like before I sent them out:

 Just ignore the jagged edges- my three year old demanded to assist me as I cut them :) Once I had 16 sides, I then bundled them up in a plastic bag so that they wouldn’t get ruined and shipped them off to the address provided to me in the email.

Step Three: Project Repat will send out an email confirming the arrival of your shirts and in about 2-3 weeks time, you will get them back in cozy quilt form! :) Which exactly what happened! Ready to see?

How awesome is this? I just love how they put it all together! The little tag detail is a great personal touch and it is seriously so soft and cozy.  Definitely a large enough lap blanket to cuddle up with.   In fact, I’ve been cuddling with it since I got it the other day.

 It’s hard to take a good picture when you’re wrapped in a comfy blanket in your fav chair but believe me when I say that this t-shirt quilt is my new favorite way to keep warm during these chilly Upstate New York winters and as generous as this blanket is for “lap size”, I am not sharing.  My kids can find their own blankies to keep them warm….thankyouverymuch.  

QOTD: What is your favorite way to repurpose old race t-shirts? 

**Disclosure** I was provided a lap size blanket in exchange for a review but as always, all opinions are my own.
