If you’re like us, you’ve got tons of old t-shirts lying around the house.
Most of them probably date back to your high school years… or other events, activities, or vacations that you’ve enjoyed.
For some reason, we just can’t bring ourselves to toss (or donate) all of those old T-shirts — even though we hardly ever wear them anymore.
Some (like those from concerts & sporting events) have never even been worn at all. We’ve simply been holding onto them purely as mementos, or souvenirs.
Take note!… Now there’s a company that will turn all of your precious old T-shirts into a one-of-a-kind custom quilt or duvet cover.
A company called Stitch’T prides itself on the creation of one-of-a-kind T-shirt quilts and duvets — all handmade in the USA.
It’s not cheap…
Prices range from $70 for a pillowcase quilt (stitched from 2 shirts)… to $175 for a baby crib quilt (made from 10 t-shirts)… all the way up to $500 for a king-sized duvet cover or quilt (consisting of 30 T-shirts).
For the record, all Stitch’T throws are backed with 60% polyester and 40% cotton gray sweatshirt
material. Duvet covers are backed with 100% cotton gray fabric.

Then again, with a little patience — and a sewing machine — you, or someone you know who likes to sew, could certainly whip up one of these T-shirt quilts in no time!
Alas, if I’ve managed to convince you that you just don’t need so many T-shirts hanging out around your home, but you’re really not interested in turning them into a custom quilt, then by all means… donate those old T-shirts to Stitch’T. They’ll put them to good use in other people’s quilts!
One of the T-shirts I cannot bring myself to throw away…
(Notice I said “throw away”. Sad but true, this one barely even deserves to be laundered anymore!)
This trusty old O.P. T-shirt (do they still make Ocean Pacific?) is the softest and most comfortable shirt I’ve ever owned in my life.
I got it in Florida, circa 1993.
It has survived several moves, various pets, and something worthy of piercing several holes through the front of it.Me last weekend… washing the dogs
For awhile, this O.P. T-shirt was my favorite sleep shirt. But now it doesn’t even meet the qualifications for that. These days, it’s fallen in the ranks and has become one of the many T-shirts we grab in times of need when we’re painting, mowing, or washing the dogs. (You know… one step above a “rag”.)
Notice the many holes and frayed sleeves…
You can even see some of the holes in the picture.
It was a very sad day…

I like to help people find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Household Tips and Life Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I'm super-organized. And I LOVE to clean! I even enjoy doing laundry (but not ironing). I’m also a lifelong dog owner — so I often share my favorite tips for living with dogs inside your home (like smart home design choices and dog-friendly cleaning & decorating ideas). Career-wise, I've been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started… and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). Prior to that, I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I'm truly passionate about instead. For example, I've worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. When I’m not cleaning, organizing, decorating, or fixing something… you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
