BREAKING OUT THE SEWING MACHINE



I am going to start sewing again!!! I am planning on setting up a website soon with samples of what I'll be sewing. I want to make a few samples of the products first before I even try to describe them.

In the mean time, I am going to start making t-shirt quilts. If you or anyone you know would like one, let me know. I'm planning on selling them for $120...at least until I get things going. You provide the t-shirts and I'll provide the
sashing strips between the shirts, outside borders, stabilizer (I will tack the quilts with yarn), internal batting, and backing all in the fabric colors of your choice. I can also make a mini quilt (the size of a baby blanket or larger) with baby t-shirts, onesies, or pieces of material from your favorite outfit if you'd like. The price on these will vary with size. Sewing is a hobby of mine and I want to start doing it again. I love t-shirt quilts because they are so full of memories. The one posted is one that I made Chad for Valentine's day one year. I used shirts from places we had been, such as concerts and sporting events. I even included the softball shirt I was wearing when we met. (The red one with a #9.) T-shirt quilts are custom made with your own t -shirts. These quilts make great graduation gifts. They are also make a great keepsake of annual events...bike races, marathons, tournaments, high school events, college events, etc. If you're interested or have questions, email me at isaacs898@yahoo.com

Good for you! I wish I had the time to sew more. I may get together some of my college t-shirts and send to you. I keep thinking I may get around to it, but it's looking doubtful. Plus, it's been more than 5 years now, and I really need to quit wearing them! ;o)
