Framed Quilted T-Shirt Art

This is a keeper! I cut up an old t-shirt from my business (Mocha Lisa) and quilted it with a thin batting. The cross-hatch design is kind of like a chain-link fence, don’t you think? Perfect to keep with the dog-themed shirt.

Then I found an old beat up picture frame at St. Vincent de Paul, spray painted it black, and cut the quilted piece to fit.  Then I taped the back to hold the quilt in, put on a picture frame hanger, and WA LA….wall art.

I absolutely love this and am going to make more. Look out t-shirt drawer, here I come!

And maybe I should offer this up for my customers? Perhaps not the framing part, but I certainly could do the quilting part.
