Shirt madness



Call me mad - I'd be the first to admit to such a label. After seeing Anita's progress on her version of Kaffe's Shirt Stripe Boxes quilt I had to tag along. I went to our local thrift shop and found some beautiful men's shirts. To say the least, I went bazookas. For 20 shirts I got 20 per cent off. The gentleman in line in front of me was wondering if I was going to dress up the whole neighbourhood. I did not dare tell him my intentions with my scoop;]...

Now I have to get myself a ruler to cut them with. I am really looking forward to starting this project. It has been on my mind too long - practically ever since the book came out.

Så spennende dette var. Har lagt til side ganske mange skjorter som jeg tenkte jeg skulle bruke som bakstykker på puter. Dette er jo et flott alternativ, da det er begrenset hvor mange puter en har bruk for. :-)

Veldig artig! Eg har ikkje greie på manneskjorter, men det er no flott viss dei blir laga i 100% bomull og kan brukast på ein sånn nyttig måte! Blir spanade!

Those shirts are really great fabrics. What a scoop! I cannot wait to see what you do with them.

How wonderful! I often buy thrift store clothing and use the fabric (and/or buttons!)
