    Im looking for a free pattern that would be good for mens cotton shirts. I went to a yard sale several months ago and it was whatever you could fit in a brown bag for $1.00. I got about 40 shirts, mostly blues, some whites, browns and yellows. I was going to cut them up and start looking for a pattern, then I had rotator cuff surgery, then a manipulation. It still hurts like you know what and I still have limited motion despite therapy and Im still off work. Anyway, I decided to cut these up today and try to do something with them. I know there are books out there using shirts but I need free. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    I've used many in my quilts. 9 patch works well or any combination of squares. I'll post some pictures.

    I was thinking that would be a good idea for Hawaiian shirts.....would look neat when done. Good luck with your search.
