How many t-shirts do I need for each size?
What is a SIDE of a t-shirt? It's either the front OR the back side of the t-shirt.
We use one square foot from each shirt. Our blankets range from 4 ft x 4 ft up to 8 ft by 8 ft.
4 feet x 4 feet’ blanket (lap size) - send 16 sides of shirts
4’ x 6 blanket (twin size) - send 24 sides of shirts
5’ x 6’ blanket (full size) - send 30 sides of shirts
7' x 7' (queen size) blanket - send 49 sides of shirts
8' x 8' (king size) blanket - send 64 sides of shirts
We only need the designated number of sides of shirts (front or back), not full t-shirts. For example, a 5 x 6 blanket can be made with 15 full t-shirts using the fronts and backs, or 30 shirts just using one side, or any combination in between.
