T-Shirt Quilt Tutorial: Step 3

You are ready to start cutting!  Yay!  This is the fun part.

The first thing I do is cut off the sleeves, then I cut up the sides, essentially cutting the t-shirt in half.

I do this because:

#1, if there is a design on the front and back, I like to cut each side out separately.

#2 I keep the left over jersey material and put it in my scrap piles for later.  I have used the leftover jersey for extra blocks in my quilt, binding, and many other non-quilting related projects (they are great for making toddler pants!).

Next: Fixing badly pre-cut t-tshirt designs
