How do I prep/cut my shirts?

You've placed your order but you are unsure of your next steps. Be sure to follow the instructions below!

    Please be sure to read and follow our instructions and understand what we need to properly make your quilt. Not doing so could result in additional fees if extra time or materials are needed. We will never send you an invoice without contacting you first; however, please try to select the correct panel size and follow proper preparation instructions to avoid these complications.

    Step 1: Gather the Correct Number of Shirts

    Please be sure to select and send the correct number of shirts for the product you have ordered. Remember: Each shirt can count as 2 panels if you want to use both front and back! 

    If we receive extra shirts, we cannot guarantee their return. Any paperwork you send in with your t-shirts will not be returned to you.

    T-Shirt Pillow

    • 16x16 - 1 front or back of shirt
    • 24x24 - 4 fronts or backs of shirts

    Important note: panel sizes on pillows are not adjustable - we recommend measuring your t-shirts prior to sending them to make sure the graphics will fit inside the 16x16" or 12x12" panels.

    T-Shirt Pillow Case

    • All sizes - 4 fronts or backs of shirts

    Important note: panel sizes on pillowcases are not adjustable - we recommend measuring your t-shirts prior to sending them to make sure the graphics will fit inside the following panel sizes: Standard 10x13", Queen 10x15", and King 10x18".

    Step 2: Cut your T-Shirts

    Simply cut your shirts in half by cutting up the side seams - only send the side of the shirt you want included. This also saves you on shipping costs. Watch the video below for step-by-step instructions! 

    Note: Please do not pre-cut your panels. Materials sent in should be at least 2 inches above your desired panel size. For example, for 12x12 panels, please send in materials that are, at minimum, 14x14 inches.

    Don't want to cut your shirts? We can do that for you! Just select the "cut my shirts for me" option that pops up when you go to check out - now only $49.99. Feel free to give us a call or send over an email if you miss this option when ordering. Please note: if you do not cut your shirts, we need to know which side(s) you want included. Please indicate this in your layout photo or email us with instructions on which sides to use. Contact us with questions!

    Step 3: Fill out the Checklist form and, if you have a preferred layout for your quilt, upload a photo of your shirts

    Step 4: Send us your Shirts

    Send your shirts in a box that has enough room. Don't forget to include your order number on the shipping label on the outside of the box.

    If you have a desired layout, snap a photo of it, and email the photo to info@memorystitch.com - just be sure to include your order number and your completed checklist as well. Contents of your shipment will shift in transit, so you MUST include a photo if you desire a specific layout. Do NOT just stack your shirts in your desired order.
