Winter: Iron Craft Challenge 6

Ready for the cold!

So this week’s Iron Craft Challenge was Winter. I have a bunch of old t-shirts, a lot of them concert shirts. Some I wore a lot and some I barely wore. But I saved them. Some may call me a hoarder (that would be my hubby) as some of the shirts are OLD but I call it being sentimental. I’ve was trying to figure out what to do with them and I’ve seen on the web people making quilts out of their old shirts. That wasn’t for me. Somehow I got the brainstorm to make a scarf out of them. That brainstorm occurred in early fall and it’s been on my list of crafty things to do for a couple of months now. Finally, an opportunity to get my ass in gear! Overall I am please with how it turned out but I think for my next t-shirt scarf (I should have enough shirts for another one!) I would make one side facing the opposite way of the other side. Not a deal breaker since I will see the shirts the right way but people looking at me will see some shirts upside down.
It was hard trying to get a good shot of all the shirts. Sienna, such a ham, wanted to help out.
Here are all the shirts I used. 13 shirts with only 1 shirt using the front and back so I guess 14 pieces in total.
Don’t remember what year I got this! Definitely in the 90’s
Also probably gotten in the ’90s
Amsterdam was part of our honeymoon back in 2001
Madonna’s Like a Virgin tour 1985! One of the best shows I went to because my friend won front row seats at the Garden and the Beastie Boys opened up (before they hit it big.) The oldest shirt of the bunch.
Early 90’s. I saw INXS at Radio City.
I had 3 Morrissey shirts to choose from. This is from the 90’s.
First year I went to Coachella in 2005
I don’t remember when I got these but definitely early 2000’s…I think!
Austin City Limits festival
Ahhh, The Lost Boys. What can I say? Second oldest shirt from 1987.
I had to throw in a Brooklyn shirt!

And there you go!

    Lisa, I totally love this! I’m off to a swap today, and hopefully I’ll get a bunch of cool t-shirts to sew up!

    Fun idea! I do think it’s funny you had a Lost Boys shirt…were you ‘team Jason’ or ‘team Keifer’ back then? (Or were you all about that oiled sax player with the mullet at the beach party?) Lol.
