I made this 25 Block T Shirt Blanket entirely out of nylon sports jerseys. They belonged to a young man who played lacrosse and football, as far as I can tell! I am often asked if I can use jerseys and the answer is yes. Sometimes I have to interface the jersey if it is a fine mesh. Other times I have to sew a backing to it, if the jersey is a tank-style and doesn’t fit into the block.

The 25-block requires double the backing fabric. In this case, I used a sweatshirt fleece and created a mock binding with the backing fabric. I really liked the effect.

I also added on several of the student’s letters to the blanket.
