Need ideas for old T-shirts

Boyfriend and I recently did some wardrobe purging and closet cleaning.  We've realized that we both have TONS of 15+ year old concert T-Shirts taking up drawer space, and they've gotta go!  Thing is, it seems somehow...sacrilegious to actually part with them, I can't really explain why.  Anywho, it leaves me with a pile of close to 40 T-Shirts that I just don't know what to do with!  My mother suggested a T-Shirt quilt, but I'm just not in love.  I've decided to make throw pillows with some of them, but how many throw pillows does one really need in a 2 room studio?  So, what to do with the rest?  Anybody have any recycling ideas?

recycling? how about eBay? i have a few nieces that shop eBay on a regular basis just for vintage concert t-shirts. still a hot market for those items lady.c!

and for those who have music listening rooms or game rooms, framing a favorite concert tee is great wall art.

no, not eeeiiiwww....cooooool! but okay. keep them. a quilt sounds original! but i also like the framing idea for a game room atmosphere.

I like the frame idea.  I'm thinking a poster-sized collage of pre-hairband metal...

I just don't love the quilt idea, dunno, something about Styx, Iron Maiden, Chicago and Poison all in one place, it's just...wrong to me.  That's why I like the throw pillow idea, I can keep genres together.  I know, weird.

oh!! since maxi length dresses are in, i would totally wear one that was all concert t-shirts. then perhaps put on a thick leather slouch type of belt w/some zories on my feet. yep. i'd wear it.

How bout making an across the body tote bag out of some of them?  I would totally rock an Iron Maiden, Chicago, etc. bag
