A custom, unique and eco-friendly baby gift! Upcycle dad's (or mom's) old T-Shirts into a functional baby blanket.

What a great way to clean up dad's drawers and share a bit of dad with baby! This blanket is meant to be used: throw it on the floor, use it in the car, at the beach or in the stroller.

The T-shirts are stabilized and complimented with cotton sashing fabric. The back is a comfortable non-pill polar fleece. I will select the fabrics based on the dominant color in the shirts, along with your input. Other specifics can be worked out via "Conversations."

Excellent quality is the pride of Maiden Jane's sewing studio!

The quilts require 9 T-shirt sides. The finished size is approximately 4 feet square.

Please check the shop announcements or contact me for approximate timing.

Frequently asked questions about MaidenJane

I can make a quilt blanket in a relatively short period of time. However, the turnaround time depends on the number of items in my custom sewing queue. It is best to plan as far as possible in advance, especially if you are considering giving one as a gift in December(holidays) or May (graduations). You can request a rush order. If I can accommodate you, there will be a $25 additional charge.
The blankets are machine washable. Machine was cool and tumble dry low. If you would like to press the top of the quilt, press gently using a press cloth or handkerchief so that you do not melt the T Shirt motifs.
No. A traditional quilt is made of three layers: the top, a middle layer of batting and a cotton bottom. The batting can shift and bunch so the quilt has to be stitched or “quilted” through the three layers. Maiden Jane blankets have two layers: the top and a cozy fleece bottom. There is no need for batting. The blankets are top-stitched and tacked down to keep the layers stable. The fleece provides a cozy and comfortable backing that is not as stiff as a traditional quilt. I can make a traditional quilt but the cost and time involved increases significantly.
I have made these quilts for over ten years. My customers testify that they are quite durable. My own children have used their blankets at college as throws and picnic blankets. They wash up very nicely. Will they be heirlooms in 100 years? I don’t know! But they are surely a “practical and pretty” way to get T Shirts out of your closet and drawers!
I use interfacing on shirts that are extremely worn or have holes in them. I also use them in the blankets that are sewn to cotton fabrics. This is mainly for ease of construction.
Yes! If the sizing is right, I can often take two shirts and combine them into one block.

You can leave fabric selection up to me or we can work together to make the selections. Sometimes customers will specify a color they would like or think would work well. Many times they leave the choices to me. You can always look through examples of my other blankets to get ideas.
