Look. I already told you I get a little bored at some of the monotony sometimes right? Well, that’s not the reason, truely I just wanted to test this experiment. I guess since I have Quiltville on the brain I just thought I’d give the ‘ol second hand shirt buying a try and see what I come up with.
I stopped at the Salvation Army on my way home from work and browsed through the button down shirts. I looked over many a tag for the ones that said 100% cotton and decided on the above photographed red ones. 7 Shirts for a grand total of $10.42 cents.
I already cut one up just to see what I could get out of it and it seriously is equivelent to 3 or 4 fat quarters worth of fabric. Like I’ve NEVER (yeah right) made a shirt before…of course it is silly!
Anyway. I thought these were nice. Nothing planned yet but I did have my eye on a photo of a plaid kaleidescope quilt. We’ll see. Maybe during quilting season of 2011. Let’s see how far I get on my current projects…
