I love T-Shirts.
I mean, that's just all there is to it.
I made my husband a t-shirt quilt for Christmas a couple years ago
And thought that I would start collecting more shirts to make other quilts with.
It started small...
But of course, it turned into a huge operation.
My local Thrift store is awesome.
Everything is dirt cheap
For instance, t-shirts are $0.25!
Prices that low make it easy to increase my stash!
Last week I went to the "Good Samaritan Thrift Store" in town and picked up 29 new t-shirts!
I have so many now that I have started sorting them by genres.
Sometimes I can find some brand name t-shirts and clothes that I plan to turn around and sell on ebay when I have a big enough lot of them.
But these would also be good for a green color scheme quilt...
I collect a lot of outdoorsy T's, because hey, it's easy. I have told you I live out in the sticks right?
I like to get a lot of Georgia-themed or associated shirts too. That way if we ever move away from GA we'll have a memoir.
I love church/Christian/VBS t-shirts too. I have tried to gather as many as I can that don't have church names all over them (which is hard!). This praying mantis one rocks! <3
Sometimes I just find some that don't really fit in a theme, but might later...
I have decided that I am most definitely making a "geek" Quilt. That category makes up the majority of my T-shirt stash actually! So here are a few that I picked up for the Geek Quilt this trip
So, I bought 29 T-shirts for $0.25 a piece and that brought my total to a whopping $7.25
You can't beat that deal with a stick!
