Project Repat T-Shirt Quilts | Tuesdays on the Run

TOTR 2 small 300

 

Tuesdays on the Run happens every week with a different theme.

This week we are looking for posts that center around winter cross training. What do you do other than running to keep in shape for your races? Yoga, weights, zumba?

Tell us all about it and link up with ErikaMarcia and me!

Project Repat T-Shirt Quilts

If you are like me, you’ve got more race t-shirts than you can possibly wear. I tend to run the Disney race series that offer 4 shirts (5K, 10K, Half and a Challenge) in one weekend.

That takes up a lot of room in my dresser, my friends! In fact, I had a single dresser filled with tech shirts from the past 5 years of running and something had to give.

I connected with Project Repat through FitFluential and they offered to send me a quilt to review.

Project Repat takes your old shirts (doesn’t have to be race shirts) and turns them into comfortable quilts. Each panel is cut from your shirt and placed on a flannel backing.

The instructions are simple and will be sent to you after you order.

But really: it’s simple! I was able to make mine work without any issues and the cutting goes quickly. Thankfully they do not need precise cuts!

If the shirt has anything on the back, you need to separate the sides.

You simply cut along the seams and arms to create your panel. You do not need to cut a perfect square; Repat will do that for you.

So messy is ok, as long as you don’t cut too close to your image.

You’ll need to cut as many panels as you will need for your quilt size.

For my twin size quilt, I needed 24 panels.

Then you pack the panels into a box, include a copy of your invoice, and send off to the factory in Massachusetts.

The hardest part is waiting patiently for your quilt to arrive.

Mine came yesterday and I love it! Check out my Facebook Live video to see the full reveal.

It’s going to be something I use every fall as I stretch out and watch football with the family.

I used all runDisney shirts and mixed them up. Some of them are shirts I love and wanted to keep in a special way; some of them I just don’t wear often enough to allow to take up room in the dresser.

It’s backed by navy flannel and is super soft and comfy.

If you are looking for a great present for your runner, I highly recommend a Project Repat quilt. You can still get one in time for Christmas (for a little extra with the processing fee).

 

Runners: turn your old race shirts into something you can use. Tshirt quilts from Project Repat. Bonus: discount good until February 25, 2017. Blanket | Running | Quilting

Patty is a 40-ish mother of four living in Virginia. A bit geeky, sometimes sarcastic, lover of a candid confession. She's trying to love running, she swears. But much like her marathon, it’s taking a very long time. Ahem. She's searching for the perfect way to balance family, work, travel, and fitness. Perfect defined as high on fun, low on guilt.
