A year or so ago, I cleaned out Jonathan's T-shirt drawer. Now it was a very difficult task because Jonathan is the kind of kid that gets attached to his favorite clothes and won't let me throw anything away. So I had heard of someone making a memory blanket with old t-shirts and suggested this solution to him. He went for it and the shirts have been sitting in a bag for a very long time waiting to be assembled in a blanket. We finally got around to it last week and it turned out pretty cool. He loves it. The little navy blue pillow beside him was also made from a t-shirt and all the scraps that we had left over from cutting the shirts got stuffed inside the pillow as filling. We didn't waste one piece of fabric. It was a really fun project for both of us. Jonathan got to arrange the pieces just the way he wanted and he helped me run the sewing machine a little.
