Memory Blankets

August 28, 2023 8 min read

Memory blankets store memories of special occasions, milestones, and lost loved ones. Let My T-shirt Blanket create a blanket as unique as your memories.


Have you ever wanted to preserve a memory in time? Memory blankets are a type of blanket that sews your or a loved one’s clothing together to create a beautifully unique blanket you can keep forever.

It’s more than just a blanket. Yes, it keeps you comfortable, but it also serves as a reminder of something important in your life. They can be made to memorialize a loved one after passing away – every time you snuggle under it, you can remember them fondly. Or, it could be for remembering a specific moment in time, like a son or daughter’s graduation.

These are special because they mean something. They tell a story, encapsulating a loving memory so it’s permanently frozen in time. That’s what we offer here at My T-shirt Blanket – a way to pack memories in a single, comfortable, soft item you’ll never want to let go of. All you need to do is send us your t-shirt panels, and we will sort out the rest.

Our Blankets

Creating your blanket takes time, effort, and a lot of sewing talent. Most people don’t have the time or the skill to create their own. Plus, even if they did, there’s a high chance it wouldn’t turn out exactly how you want it to. That’s why we offer a high-quality service here at My T-shirt Blanket. With our expert sewers and friendly customer service team, you can enjoy whatever memory you want to preserve using t-shirts.

You might not believe that a blanket of t-shirts can be endlessly soft, but that’s not the case. Our memory quilts aren’t just made of t-shirts; they also use fleece sewn around the t-shirts to tie them all together. This holds together exceptionally well, ensuring that the blankets stay intact no matter how often you wash them. They are soft, comfortable, and personal and make an excellent blanket for either decoration or snuggling.

When to Create a Memory Blanket

Our products work well for many types of occasions, whether sad, happy, or somewhere in-between. Whatever memory you want to preserve, the quilt can do just that.

After Losing a Loved One

Losing a loved one is never easy. Grieving is always a difficult, complicated time, and it helps to have something to hold onto – something that reminds you of the person you have lost. That’s why a memorial quilt from clothing works so well.

Using your loved ones’ clothes, we build memorial blankets using one of the most personal items: their t-shirts. For a lost baby, a t-shirt blanket made of baby clothing will help you remember your lost child. After such a difficult time, being able to cherish those short memories in a memorial quilt can help the grieving process. Then, you have something to

remember your baby by forever. Whenever you want to think about your lost baby, you just need to pull the memorial quilt around your shoulders.

For family members of someone who has lost a baby or another close relative, sympathy blankets like these are a lovely way to show how much you sympathize with the situation. Taking care of creating a memorial quilt from clothing can be a very kind thing to do, too, when your family member is in the grieving process.

Celebrating a Special Occasion

Many people enjoy our memorial blankets for events, particularly for big special occasions like milestone birthdays, graduation, and starting kindergarten. We make something that encapsulates some of people’s happiest memories! For example, if your little one is just starting school, that’s the perfect time to gather all their old, outgrown clothing items and turn them into something unique. Turn their toddler clothes into a blanket, and you’ll have an object to remember their younger years forever.

Saying Goodbye to a Moment in Time

Sometimes, people reach a moment in their life when it’s time to move on. That might mean leaving an old job, moving away from the home they’ve always known, or even deciding to finally come home after years of travel. Memory quilts can be a way to remember old moments – the times that you have said goodbye to but don’t want to forget. For example, if you spent a couple of years bouncing from country to country, traveling and meeting new people, you could remember those days by building a t-shirt quilt of all the shirts you wore during that period. It’s a unique way to reflect on an old time. Every time you use the blanket, you’ll be filled with nostalgia.

How it Works

Creating memory quilts couldn’t be easier when you choose to use our incredible team at My T-shirt Blanket.

You first need to choose the T-shirts you want on the blanket. Keep in mind that you can use both the front and back design of the t-shirt. Once you have selected your t-shirts, you can start your order with us by choosing your blanket size. Our throws use 16 panels, whereas our king blankets use 64 panels. Each quilt panel is made up of one t-shirt. Plus, there are different size quilt panels, including 12-inch, 14-inch, and 16-inch.

From there, you can choose a fleece color: navy, gray, red, black, blue, or pink. You also get the option of designing your own – shirt quilts like this cost a little more, but you get more control over the exact layout of the blanket. Otherwise, we are more than happy to create the blanket in a way we think looks best.

Our shirt quilts can also use other items of clothing, including sweatshirts, towels, tank tops, and button-front shirts. However, these can often take a little more time, so you may have to pay a little more.

Don’t worry if you don’t have enough t-shirts to create the entire blanket, as you can use photos to fill in squares. You’ll just need to select the photo square option. That way, your memorial quilt can also include pictures of your loved one. There’s also an option to include

embroidery – perhaps a special message you want to place on the blanket. That could be the name of a loved one you have lost.

Once you’ve selected all your preferences, it’s time to gather the t-shirts. We ask that you cut the seams to separate the front from the back to create two panels and then send the sides you wish to form into the blanket.

After we have received your order and t-shirts, we will keep you updated every step of the way. Our expert team will get to work creating something that you will cherish forever.

Why Memory Blankets?

Here at My T-shirt Blanket, we chose to make memory blankets for a reason. Here are just some of the benefits they offer:

They are Comfortable

When reminiscing about a memory or thinking about someone you’ve loved who has passed away, it’s nice to feel comforted. That’s precisely what they deliver. When you create a memorial quilt from clothing, you can enjoy the endless softness of fleece.

The Versatility

Memorial blankets can be used in a variety of ways. You may wish to keep it simple, keeping it in a basket and using it when it gets chilly, or you could choose to hang it on the wall as decoration. We even have a wall-hanging option for those who would prefer to do this.

They Last and Last

When you create something to immortalize a memory, you want to ensure the item lasts forever. Good news – our blankets stand the test of time, thanks to our expert sewers and techniques. As long as you treat it well, you can be sure it will last a lifetime.

They Look Fantastic

You’ll see when your memory blanket arrives just how fantastic they look, both in pictures and in real life. As a mish-mash of different clothing, it’s like a feast for the eyes, with so many different designs to take in. Plus, you have control over the way it finally looks. You can choose t-shirts that match up stylistically so that the final product looks more uniform. On top of that, you can pick from one of the six colors to make the blanket perfect for you.

Professionally Made Vs. Doing It Yourself

Yes – it is possible to sew one yourself. However, we only recommend this to people who have done it before, have the proper equipment, and have the skills to match. When making something as precious as a memory blanket, you want to be sure that the result is exactly how you pictured it. On top of that, you want the stitches to hold well so that it lasts a lifetime. For this, getting it professionally made is best. At My T-shirt Blanket, we guarantee a high-quality result every time. Just look at our reviews – all our customers end up delighted with their blanket orders. We are a team you can trust to ensure your blanket turns out exactly how you want it.

What to Do with Your Memory Blanket

You might be surprised to learn there are several things you can do with your blanket! It doesn’t have to stay in a basket forever.

Cuddle Up with It

As these blankets are for remembering both happy and sad memories (and those in-between), we think it’s essential for them to be endlessly comfortable. You can cuddle up with your memory blanket as often as you like, reminiscing as you stay warm and cozy.

Make it a Wall Hanging

Would you rather be able to view your memory quilt every day? If so, you can turn it into a wall hanging. With our wall hanging option, your blanket becomes a decoration, and you can hang it anywhere in your home. It will look stunning, and you can remember your loved one or a special event whenever you gaze upon it.

Store it Somewhere Safe

When creating a memorial blanket for a lost loved one, it might be too hard to have it on display in your home at all times. That is understandable. In this case, it’s perfectly reasonable to keep your blanket somewhere safe – like a box or basket – only to bring it out when you want to remember or grieve your loved one.

Look After It

When it comes to caring for your memorial blanket, you can machine wash it warm (but not hot) water. It’s generally better to air dry, but you can put it in the tumble dryer on a cool setting. Of course, ensure you don’t use bleach near the blanket, as this will cause permanent damage. Other than that, take good care of your blanket by treating it with care while using it for comfort.

Other Memory Items

Here at My T-shirt Blanket, we offer a few other products that use items of clothing so that you can remember a person or event in many different ways. Our t-shirt pillows are top-rated. These cushions showcase just one t-shirt panel, which is perfect if you haven’t collected lots of t-shirts over the years. If your little one has outgrown their favorite superhero t-shirt, you can celebrate their growth and remember their younger years by turning it into a pillow which will make for an excellent room decoration!

We also offer t-shirt curtains. Taking your t-shirt panels, we create high-quality curtains you can hang in front of your windows. It’s a unique look that many people love!

The My T-shirt Blanket team is devoted to storing memories within the highest quality blankets. We create blankets out of all types of clothing, ensuring your memories stay alive forever. If you have any questions, contact our friendly customer service team – we are happy to assist you in any way.
