Make Pet Blankets from Recycled T-Shirts

A great way to use T-shirts that are no longer wearable is to make a pet blanket or throw. Just cut the center out of the T-shirt and sew each square together. Fold the outside edges under to hem.

You can donate these to a local pet shelter. They can use them for bedding, drying animals, or most anything. This recycling idea keeps those T-shirts out of the landfills, and also helps much deserving animals.

What she is saying to cut squares out of old t-shirts, and usually the sleeves don't have enough to make a square out of but they might and sew the together. This is a great idea. Here is a place that deals with sewing. It teaches you how to sew.

Be careful and you might want to use a thimble or duct tape your index finger of the left hand to protect it from the needle.
