How to treasure all those t-shirts you don't know what to do with but can't throw them away.

I saw a couple different ways to make a t-shirt throw. I modified it for what I wanted. The total measurement is 60 X 72. I little bigger then a regular throw but I like big throws.


  • How to make a patchwork quilt. T Shirt Throw - Step 1
    Step 1

    Start by deciding how big of a throw you would like. I wanted just a little smaller then 60 x 72. So I used 15 t-shirts. Cut a pattern block of 12 x 12. Using a rotary cutter and safety board put your pattern piece to your t-shirt. Cut out throw both the front and back to have two squares per t-shirt.

    Once all of your squares are cut out, lay out your lines. I made six lines or five squares.

    Stack each row in order so the order stays the same.

    Step 4

    Iron your squares. Make the first row but putting the right side together. Iron your seams.

    Step 5

    Make sure that you pin the sides together well as t-shirt material is very stretchy.

  • Step 6

    Sew all your rows together.

  • Step 7

    Pin the t-shirts to your fleece right sides together. Use your rotary cutter and mat to even up the fleece with the t-shirts.

  • Step 8

    Start sewing together. Leave block open so the throw can be flipped in side out. Once done sewing trim the corners. Flip the inside out and pushing the corners out.

  • Step 9

    Lay the throw on a flat surface. Get a large needle with yarn and tie the corners where the t-shirts meet. Tie throw the t-shirt and fleece material.

  • Step 10

    Once all the corners are tied pin the opening closed by folding the fleece and t-shirt material in and together.

    You can hand sew the once together. I choose to sew around the edge of the hole thing so the one block with be hid and makes a nice finish.

    Even up all the yarn corners so they match.

    Enjoy your cute fleece throw

@Amy B, people have been making tshirt quilts for many years, the concept isn't original to iWunder here. That person didn't make a how-to, or state if they had any inspiration from anything other than their own imagination; personally I've been debating about making one for many years, if I do finally get around to it, would you insist I credit this page also?? @_@

@iWunder, I love the fleece you chose, so cute! But you quit taking photos halfway through and I have no idea what you keep referring to with "tying the corners." =/
