…that you can sew. Seriously. My friend Christa can probably attest to this better than I can because she is actually a bona fide seamstress. I can just sew straight lines pretty well. Curtains, pillows, that kind of thing. Even so, this is becoming a lost art, people. So when someone finds out you can sew, saaaaayyy the coordinator for your school’s fundraising auction, this happens-
Yep, those are t-shirt quilts made out of school shirts.
My original plan when I asked for the shirt donations was to make lap quilts for my classroom (I like it cold in my room). But when you end up with a bunch of shirts, it makes people curious. I’m okay with it because I was trying to figure out how to contribute to the auction anyway, but I felt PRESSURE because they weren’t just for my students to use during my class. Someone is going to buy those. Yikes.
I’m already pushing my entrepreneurial spirit to the limit considering I have a full time job, so I definitely won’t be adding t-shirt quilt maker to my list of money-making adventures. I don’t even think I’m going to make the lap quilts I originally set out to make! I’ll stick with the endeavors I’ve already started for now. I’m sure it will preserve what sanity I have left.
I hope everyone has a blessed Easter weekend. Have fun with your family and enjoy the lives that the Lord has so lovingly given you.
