What do you with all the Tshirts?



  • Would you believe you can make quilts out of them?


    Ideal for use as picnic blankets, covering bikes in winter, bedquilts etc!

    Sorry wrong link. This one's for pictures of the quilts not how to make them!
  • I've got about 120 starting at 'Bankfield House Devil's Gallop 1984' to 'Leeds Student 10K 2006'

  • i like the idea of wearing one for sports day - my daughter is coming up to 2 and this will be looming into view in the next few years - is it bad form to take spikes to a parents day "meet"? :-)
  • well would you believe there's even one on there made from marathon race T shirts.

    *plods off to get a life*
  • I'm going to tie all mine together and use them to make a break for it, and get home to blighty in time for teacakes with Matron! The goons on the tower will never see me.

    Nah, I wear most of mine, or I cut the sleeves off and use them to run/ work out in.

    I've even got t-shirts at exp[o's for races I didn't even start. Ooops!

    They're useful to keep warm before the start of a race, but can be ditched at the last minute. Lots of races will recycle the 'left' tshirts.

    It's psychologically nice to the tshirt from the same race a few years before. Either psyches out the opposition, or makes them laugh when you crash and burn!

    Maiday - yes actually I like the Bristol Half ones and I train in mine. Are you local? Running in Bristol, I find all the people in Bristol Half t-shirts nod to one another more than not. Jools B (fellow Bristol based runner) and I did a sort of 'consumer test' last year for a laugh to check.

  • Being sad and into recycling I actually made mine into a quilt as an experiment. Have to admit that it turned out a lot better than I though it would.
  • I think I need to get out more
  • I do wear some of mine for gym and such but most of them just hang there forlornly waiting to be picked-up...

    ...reminds me of some nightclubs I used to frequent when I was a student

    Hi Mouse - I'd forgotten about the 'smile' test. Maybe I'll wear one of mine tonight and see how happy Bristolians are feeling!!
  • Mrs G

    have you got a picture of that quilt

    what a GREAT idea
  • I use them to tie up captive women and show them re-runs of the FLM with Bredon't and Crap turned up full-whack.


    For you lickle ladeeeeeeeeee zere iz no escape!
  • Ooops.

    I donate them to the Mrs Tiggy Winles Hedgehog sanctuary as emergency 'hog stretchers.
  • I have been meaning to turn mine into a duvet cover & cushions for ages, but not got round to it.
    My mara PB T-shirt must however be worn the day before any significant race, even if just for a few minutes. And I quite often do exams in mara T-shirts - reminds me there is more to life.
  • Pyjamas are good - rather a lot are knee-length on me so do quite nicely as nighties.

    Hello again Jools.

    I'm swimming tonight but look forward to playing 'guess who Jools might be' on the downs in Bristol Half t-shirts between now and September!

    Great idea mrs G!

    I am afraid to say for most of mine they get torn up and used to clean my bike!
