A collective noun for T shirts?

T shirts numbers 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

During the week as I sewed up my 5 tee shirts and cut out another 2, my mind wandered into la la land a bit. So I started wondering what the collective noun for a group of Tshirts was...or should be...

Something cool like a bloat of hippopotamuses.
Or a mischief of mice.
Or just plain a sneer of butlers...or a flange of baboons...

But I didn't get far. Nothing witty, meaningful or even practical. Ithink that I just need to stop making tees and get a life so that I can think about more meaningful things!

Anyhow here are the tees- 2 for each of the boys and another for me!
Pattern- Ottobre Creative Workshop 301 (kids) and 303 (womens)
Fabric- Plain - Stella from Crafty Mamas (Australia)
-Patterned - Fabric Fairy (USA)

The boys chose the fabric colour for the arms to go with the robot fabric.

I'm halfway through 2 funker styled shirts for my daughter then I am moving onto other projects of the non-tee shirt variety!

These look fantastic! I have that pattern here and have been meaning to get around to using it for ages now. Maybe with the school holidays on I can get my two older boys to help, it can become an afternoon project!

Leisl I have a fancy schmancy overlocker and am just discovering what it can do!
My problem was that my mind got to a "bosom of t shirts" and then I just couldn't get past it...
