Kate did a great job! The pillow complements my t-shirt blanket perfectly.

Kate did a WONDERFUL job with my husband's t-shirts. This is a huge blanket put together with care. The blanket is a true work of ART that encapsulates our whole lives. All the t-shirts that we have cherished are included in the quilt. What great memories to keep. Thank you so very much, Kate.

About

Love to create! Please contact me k8scache@gmail.com or click conversation!

Ten years ago, doing a little spring cleaning, I realized I had mountains of T shirts, most of which didn't fit (ah, the advance of time!). Yet they represented so many memories that I didn't want to give up. So, I made my first blanket. Its not a quilt; based on my 20 years' experience in the apparel industry, I knew a regular stitch was not appropriate for knit tees. So I use a professional machine to create the same exact seams that are inside actual T shirts. The result is a double thickness, super soft, cool, upcycled way to "curl up with your memories".
I made myself quite a few blankets - one with family vacations and reunions; one with my favorite sports teams, one with all my cute "younger" concert tees. Now I'm saving all of my daughters tees to make her a blanket, to show off all the places she's been.
Since then I have made almost 100 blankets for friends, family, and now my beloved Etsy customers.

I also love making princess costumes. As a couture designer by trade, I have the knowledge and experience to make the most fantastic costumes. All costumes are washable and tumble dry, and will last for years! All of the costumes in the photos (that's my little girl!) have been worn several times and washed several times. These are truly heirloom pieces that handed down and worn by every child in the family, and even handed to the next generation. Please feel free to ask for any costume you can think of, custom orders and requests are welcome.

Additional policies and FAQs
These t shirt creations are blankets, not quilts. No other fabric is used except your own shirts. Custom costumes are made to your child's specific measurements, so careful measuring is important - be sure to ask any questions! Custom costumes are beautifully and sturdily finished to survive multiple washings on gently and line drying. I strive to be as exact as possible with my desicription, so each buyer is fully aware of what they are purchasing. Please feel free at any time to request further information, ask questions, or request more or detailed photos so that you have all the info you need to make your decision!
