T シャツプロジェクト、その後 – T-Shirt Project Since Then


もう着なくなったTシャツ、でも捨てがたいTシャツ。それを集めてキルトプロジェクトを始めたのは1ヶ月前の事です。ようやく全てのピースを縫い合わせました。What do you do with old T-shirts that you don’t wear anymore, yet are hard to let go of? I started the T-shirt project a month ago, because it’s a wonderful idea to solve the question. And now, I have put all the odd pieces together.

端が不揃いだったので、余り布でかこいました。そして下の写真のように、裏布用に準備した古いシーツを下に敷いてみました。なんとなく雰囲気が出てきた感じ。まあ、自分の為だけに作ってるんだから、こんなもんでいいとしますかね。I added a border with leftover fabric to even out the edges. See below picture. I laid out the backing fabric made from an old sheet on the floor, then the front T-shirt layer on top. I guess it shows well enough what I wanted to achieve. After all, no one wants it other than myself as memorabilia. This is good enough.

この後、綿を入れてキルトサンドイッチを作ります。表、中、そして裏をシワを作らず留める作業は、全行程の要かもしれません。それが終わったら初めてチクチク縫い始める作業にとりかかれます。先は長い。So the next step is to insert a cotton batting in between the front and back fabrics, and make a sandwich. The more I learned about quilting, I realize it’s possibly the most critical step in the entire process. Now I can start quilting with a needle and a thread. It’s still a long way to go to completion.
