RELAY SHIRTS. I have a million. You have a million. What in the world do you do with them all?
Over Christmas I was looking for a great gift for my sister in law and my niece that would help them remember my mother-in-law who passed away in April. I had boxes and boxes and boxes of her clothing, so the most meaningful choice was, of course, a t-shirt quilt. But, I quickly ran into a problem- having t-shirt quilts made is EXTREMELY expensive. Not there was a price on my love for my SIL and niece, but I just couldn't swing $700 per quilt.
So- I turn to my BFF Google to try to find a more affordable option, and up pops Project Repat. I was... skeptical. A T-shirt quilt for just over $100? HOW are they pulling this off with good quality? I pulled the trigger to find out. I was, VERY impressed. Turns out they are not quilting your t-shirts, which is a much more labor-intensive
process. They patch work all of your shirts together, and then use a recycled polar fleece for the back. It is warm, it is cozy, and it is amazing. Even better? They are all made right here in the US.
So, after seeing how amazing the memorial quilts came out, I got to thinking- how can I use this for Relay? It just so happened that I had several boxes of extra hoodies from our Pink Out event in October. To make a long story short, I thought I was being smart by ordering extra hoodies to sell at the game. BUT, Oklahoma weather decided to give us a warm 85 degree fall night, so naturally they didn't sell.
Project Repat to turn those bad boys into a blanket to auction off Relay night! I placed my order, prepped the hoodies and t's, and shipped them off to Project Repat. 3 weeks later, the most amazing thing arrived at my door step!
I am so excited about it! And you bet your butt I will be bidding on it Relay night, because I am kind of in love.
So, Project Repat being the awesome company they are, has offered to give me $10 for Relay For Life for each referral I send them. DOUBLE WIN, with this link you also get 10% off! So get all of those participant and Relay fundraising shirts out from the back of your closet and make something amazing you will use (or better, will make you money for Relay!)
