  1. I love all of your ideas! These are so great and definitely inspirational. When you get around to making a t-shirt quilt you should definitely post a tutorial. I have always wanted to make one of my own! Thanks for sharing your list, girl!

    1. Alayna,

      Thanks so much! The t-shirt quilt idea has been around since I was little. My mom wanted to make one of all my field trip/concert/etc tees but we never got around to it. So now that I am graduating college I might have a little extra time on my hands to do it! 🙂
