How-To: Make a Concert Tee Into a Baby Gown

Craft & Design Yarncraft

I’m only slightly embarassed to admit that I have a brown paper bag tucked away on a high shelf in my closet that has written on it in huge Sharpie-drawn letters (and I’m not kidding here), “T-shirts of sentimental value! DO NOT throw away!” My mom made so much fun of this bag of t-shirts and wondered how any t-shirt could hold enough sentimental value for me to declare they not ever be touched. Inside the bag are t-shirts from my time at Space Camp back in 7th grade, from my high school newspaper days and a handful from concerts I attended in college (Smashing Pumpkins, anyone?) I so wish I’d had this cute pattern for turning a concert tee into a baby gown, from This Mama Makes Stuff, when my kids were infants. I may have finally been able to bring that bag down and put all those “important” t-shirts to good use!

    I really love this idea!! I have a lot of concert t-shirts that I never wear, but can’t throw out.
    Only problem is, I havent got any kids to make these for!!

    I read this and felt very very jealous that you had been to a smashing pumpkin gig. This would have been my teenage dream (still is a bit)

    Another idea (stolen shamelessly from the book “Generation T”) is to cut squares out of your shirts, just to showcase the print, and then turn those squares into a quilt!
