Making Memories: Project Repat T-shirt Quilt
I love the story behind Project Repat- two guys, Nathan and Ross, started this company that branched from pretty funny encounter. Ross was in Nairobi doing non-profit education work and was stuck in a 2 hour traffic jam. He eventually found the source of the delay: a Kenyan man, wearing a t-shirt that read "I Danced My Ass Off at Josh's Bar Mitzvah," had an overturned vegetable and fruit rickshaw. This sparked a question about how to reuse castaway t-shirts.
Here is a little info about where the quilts are made:
When I opened the package containing the finished quilt, all of the memories from the first 3 years with Bryson came flooding back.
This was from Bryson's 2nd birthday party (Cars-themed, of course)- it was the first shirt he actually cared about what was on it and has demanded that he pick out his clothes ever since.
And here is the finished product!
I am thrilled with the quality- the shirts all line up perfectly, and they made every effort to get the full images on the quilt. They coordinated the colors and patterns of the shirts- they put a black shirt in each corner, a red shirt and white shirt on each side, and balanced the look overall. The quilt was also surprisingly affordable- they actually guarantee the best prices online for a t-shirt quilt. I love it when a company has a great story, quality product and fair prices. Project Repat isn't just for kid's shirts- does your husband have an insane collection of high school sports shirts? How about concert t's? Vacation souvenir t-shirts? The list goes on.
Why not take those boxes of t-shirts and create a memory for yourself or your family?
SO excited to see your finished quilt!! Please share pics :)
Disclosure: I received a complimentary Project Repat quilt for review purposes, but all opinions are honest and my own.
