You found out that your child "threw your T-shirt under the bed" (not sure if it is ok to say like that), would you say "go get it under the bed for me, please"?

You want to say “go get it from under the bed”.

It may seem weird that there are two prepositions here, but this is common in English. See also the question Double preposition?
