T-shirt blanket

Done, son.
Thank you, fans.
First shot after the top was all sewed together

Blending the front and back of my Republic of Pemberley tee.

Hand sewing the binding took FOREVER. And I only bled a little.

This was my first corner. Unfortunately, they got worse as I went.

Seriously, look how snuggly.

Of course I had to add my tag.
Finished product, even though I couldn’t get all of it in the picture.

Nap time.
After it was all done, I decided to add a few more to the blank spaces, including bits of McFly.

Starting in the top left-hand corner:
Stanford University sweatshirt (quick “research” trip to the Stanford campus with sister S. Will forever remind me of how the guy at the bookstore totally busted us for not being students, and how S’s sweatshirt was way too small, and laughing our guts out right outside the bookstore. 2008.)
Waldon Woods Project (a charity protecting the woods near Boston that were the inspiration for Henry David Thoreau’s Waldon. 1998.)
Margaritaville (I’m pretty sure I got this while on vay-cay in Florida with S and two other college friends, 1999.)

Live United (United Way – Atmos Energy’s charity of choice. 2007.)
