Creative Space

5 old work shirts

In my Creative space today, 5 old work shirts ready to be ironed and cut in to 5 inch squares for a quilt for the wee man.

Lets see if I can have it ready for his 1st birthday!

hop on over to Kirst's to check out other Creative Spaces.



  1. this will be great - is a grand gesture too - no more work just a little guy to snuggle!
    Hope your summer was bearable with the little guy!

  2. What a great use for old work shirts! We're not allowed to send ours to the op-shop with the logos still attached and they usually look pretty awful once you've removed the pocket or unpicked the logo so that is a fabulous idea.

    Good luck with your making!

  3. So, did the husband work in these shirts or were they a Thrift scoop?
    Thanks for letting me know about the knit beanie. I'm not sure how I missed the link but I'm eager to begin!

  4. happily these shirts are the husbands old work shirts from a job we are so grateful for him to be leaving! One week in to his new job and he is a much happier man :)

  5. what a great idea! i can´t wait to see what you come up with. happy sunday!

  6. Congrats to the hubby. Mine still wears shirts like these and he's trying to make the best of these interesting times. We're a lookin' and a prayin' that something else will turn up, but for now... he's got the right attitude and we have food on the table. :)
