My daughter once told me that she had an entire drawer of t-shirts that she never wears but couldn’t get rid of. We all have some of those shirts. When she started her freshman year of college, this drawer grew incredibly fast. It seemed everywhere she went, there was another shirt.
All of these t-shirts were memories of her cheer squad in high school, her first homecoming in college, her first club meeting on campus, her first football game, her move-in day in dorms, and so on. When I went to visit her this spring, I saw that she wasn’t exaggerating – it was an entire drawer in her closet. She smiled and told me she loved them, but would never really wear them.
Project Repat makes quilts from the t-shirts we can’t stand to give away, but never wear. I knew immediately this was the gift for my daughter. When I went to move her out of her dorm for summer, I made sure to note which box had the all the t-shirts. Then in all the confusion of moving we “misplaced” the box for a while.
But when my daughter saw the completed quilt, she instantly teared up. It is the perfect way for her to remember her first year of college. It shows all the memories from the year in one place. She can proudly display these memories and have a daily reminder of this special time. And now she has an extra drawer again!
