Out of two of the t-shirts (they had smaller logos) I made the girls skirts. To do this I cut the t-shirt from the bottom up to the length I wanted it+1.5 inches. After that you measure down 1.5 inches and fold it in and sew it up, leaving an opening to put the elastic in. I also sewed around the top of it before putting the elastic in. I used 3/4" elastic. Sew the hole shut and sew a few places verticaly and you have a cute little girls skirt.

One of my projects this summer was to make a t-shirt quilt for my little brother. He graduated from High School this year and for his gift I made him a quilt for his bed at school. I used about 19-20 t-shirts and then some fabric. For the backing I used fleece to make it nice and warm. There is medium weight batting inside, so that along with the fleece there is a little poof to it. I hand quilted it as sewing around the outside was too much of a work out for my sewing machine.
