(How to make a t-shirt quilt) I know I personally am one of those people who are always buying t-shirts from every school event - and I tend to never actually wear them more than once. What an awesome memorabilia piece I could add to my dorm! A quilt made of all my high school event (powder puff, yearbook staff, homecoming, etc.)
Good old Martha taught us that rather than buying those ridiculously expensive anti-slip mats for a rug, just turn it over and run a few lines of acrylic-latex caulk every 6 inches or so. Let dry and flip over and your rug wont be going anywhere!
