You signed up, you trained, you ran and you got the Race T-shirt. Repeat a couple dozen times and you may have something that looks like this:
Where to store all of this? Are you really going to wear these shirts? All of my shirts have memories tied to them and I was reluctant to just give them away. First half, first tri, first relay etc. What’s a runner to do? Enter Project Repat
Preserve your race memories by turning your well earned shirts into a quilt that lasts forever. The process is simple and fast. Simply select your shirts, pick a size and send them off to Project Repat. There is very little prep involved. If your shirt only has writing on one side, no need to cut it at all. If your shirt has logos or writing on both sides, simple cut in half and only send the side you wish you use. Project Repat will size your shirts to fit your desired size quilt. Quilt sizes range from lap size to king size.
Use this guide to determine how many shirts or shirt sides are needed for your design.
You will have a choice of the fleece color on the back. (Magenta, black, navy, gray, lt blue or red) I chose magenta. I sent my precious tees in and excitedly waited for my quilt to arrive. The website says your quilt will arrive within 2-3 weeks. I received mine just over a week later and tada!
I received my full sized quilt free of charge in exchange for a review, however all opinions are my own. As you can see I am beyond thrilled with my quilt. I love the super soft fleece on the back. The quilt is very well made and I plan to be snuggling up with it for years to come.
The prices for the quilts range from $59 for the lap size to $239 for the King size. My readers can use code “MotherRunner” for 15%.
The possibilities are endless here really. Create a quilt with your Alma Mater gear, your kids old t shirts or your favorite sports teams. This makes a great holiday gift for any runner or athlete. Attention spouses: Gift cards are also available so you don’t have to decide which shirts to steal from your runner. Now how to keep mine away from the rest of the family?
Preserve those t shirts forever and stay warm-it’s a win win!!
