The Curse Of The Oversized Shirts 3

Having lost a fairly large amount of weight, I now have a lot of stuff that doesn’t fit. I gave the vast majority of it to Goodwill, which is probably appropriate since that’s where I’m now buying most of the clothing to replace what no longer fits.

However, I’m a bit torn about what to do with a number of t-shirts I have which hold some sentimental value. Mostly rock shirts from when I was in high school and college, as well as a few shirts from previous shows I’ve worked on.

I have a couple options I can think of, and I’d like to solicit some advice as to what else you guys would recommend. So far I have thought of:

a) Keeping all the shirts in case I get fat again (an idea I’ve largely rejected simply because I feel like that would simply encourage me to get fat again, which is why I’m getting rid of all my old clothes in the first place)

b) Cutting them up and keeping the parts of actual sentimental value and turning them into some sort of art – framing them or making a quilt (or more accurately, having a friend who can actually sew help me make a quilt) or something.

Anyone else have any suggestions?

    i think the quilt is a great idea- my parents saved a lot of clothes from when i was growing up and i’ve often thought about doing that.

    I like the quilt idea for t-shirts especially.
