So, it wouldn’t be the holidays without me deciding to take on some huge project that I really probably should have started back in August so that I had time (ha!), but instead I decide to wait until I’m on break from school, which means that I only have about one week to make said huge project.
I’ve had this idea for a long time, ever since my younger sister started outgrowing her horse shirts but refused to get rid of them. What better way to use them than a t-shirt quilt? This was my first time making a quilt in any form, and it turned out to be easier than I expected – of course, it also means that it’s a little wonky and off-centered, but oh well. I had some batting leftover from another project, and it’s backed with a plain brown bedsheet (brown is a horse color, of course). It’s all machine-sewn, but the details are hand-embroidered. I worked on it bit by bit over the course of a week (cutting the pieces, figuring out layout) and then one day spent about 6 hours watching season 5 of “Lost” and embroidering.
It’s a bit small, so not large enough for her whole bed or anything, but just about perfect to take in the car. And since it’s made with well-worn t-shirts, it’s super soft!
