Think about this with me for just a moment. Since you were a kid, you have been wearing sport jerseys. From Randy Moss to Zach Parise, you have paid large amounts of money for a shirt you will wear for a few seasons until you get the next great players jersey. I would also bet that you have one of these jerseys hiding in the back of your closet. Am I right? Unless you are still wearing them, I am sure they are collecting dust and you wish you had a nice way to display each of these shirts that you have worn so proudly in the past?
That’s the trouble with sports jerseys, they are short lived. We wear them proudly for a short amount of time but then what? You end up having to ask yourself what to do with them. Do I store them? Do I donate them? Do I throw them away? The possibilities are endless! Now, imagine if there was a way for you to continue to show off the jerseys without having to throw them away along with the money you spent on them. I am here to tell you, there is!
T-shirt quilts can be one of the best ways to cherish those jerseys for a lifetime. Although it is called a T-shirt quilt, it can be stitched together with a variety of clothing. Those jerseys in the back of your closet are a fantastic example of the items that can be used for your quilt.
The photo on the right is a of my husband, Rick, he has a great love for hockey as I do. He cheers on his favorite team, the Minnesota Wild but he also plays the intense, fast paced game. The quilt he is pictured with is one that I pieced together with some of his own hockey jerseys. It has been a wonderful keepsake that we can warm-up with during the cold Minnesota winters.
Other Sport Related Items to Add to Your Quilt:
Your “jersey quilt” can be made from your own jerseys that you wore in grade school, college and anything in between. These items can be very special and hold a lot of memories you shared with your teammates. You can also make a quilt from professional athlete’s jerseys that you have purchased to show your support for your favorite team or player. Now, some of you might be wondering, “well what if I don’t have enough jerseys for an entire quilt? YOU GUYS! That’s what is great, the sky is the limit. Some items you might like to include in your T-shirt quilt are: any kind of sport uniforms, baseball pants, patches, letter jackets, sweatpants, sweatshirts, jackets, and logos on sport bags.
As you can see, there are tons of different options you can include in your Minnesota T-shirt Quilt. And I know if you have participated in any sports or community programs, you have accumulated so many jerseys, hats, and t-shirts that you don’t know what to do.
Minnesota T-shirt Quilts would absolutely love to help make those items into a wonderful keepsake that you can cherish for a lifetime and pass down from generation to generation.
