T シャツプロジェクト – T-Shirt Project


去年からずーっと考えていたんですが、なかなか行動に移せませんでした。でも、今日は風が強くて寒いし、バンちゃんもいない事だしということで、Tシャツキルトのプロジェクト開始となりました。 I’ve been thinking about this project since last year, but couldn’t get started for some reason. It is such a windy day, however, and Banchan is not home, so I decided to get started the T-shirt quilt project.

カリフォルニアから引っ越してくる前にずいぶん処分しましたが、思い出が深くて捨てきれなかった物もありました。特にガラパゴス諸島で買ってきたブルーフットブービーとは別れ難い。Many shirts went to donation even before we moved out from California, but I couldn’t let go of some of the shirts like my Blue-footed booby shirt from the Galapagos Islands.

でも、箪笥の中が限界です。一気にシャキシャキ。But now my drawers are fully packed again and I have to say good-bye to some more of them.

切ったシャツをちょっと並べてアイディア探し。So first, I laid out all the pieces and brainstormed. 

だんだん完成図が見えて来ました。Yes, yes, it’s coming. The image that I am looking for is clearer now.

えーっと、サイズを揃えるところが難しそう。でも、もう一度並べ替えてできそうな事がわかったので、今日はここまで。Hmmm, it could be difficult to make all pieces the same size. I sorted and laid them out again. There, it looks so much better. This is it. Well-done for the day.  

次はアイロンをかけて、サイズを揃えて裁断していきます。完成目標は年内です。定年退職してからやる事いっぱいですからね。ゆるゆる進みます。(笑)The next step should be ironing, then cutting pieces again to fit into my plan. The target completion is the end of the year. I am a busy retired woman. I go slow. hahaha
