To start my Scrappy April off right, I did a little research on one of my favorite materials to see upcycled – vintage sheets. There’s some seriously pretty fabrics in these links, folks. I have a small collection of sheets and pillowcases in my own stash and I just might have to try one or two of these tutorials. If you’ve done any, I’d love to see pictures.
And now… On with our show!
Get Your Martha On shows a better way than just eating in bed to use your sheet as a napkin.
Check the sidebar for all 4 weeks of the “On The Edge” sew along over at You Go Girl. This would be a great project to either make your own pillowcase from vintage sheets or just pretty up an old pillowcase.
Oh, Fransson gives us a pretty way to organize our projects with the Workbasket tutorial. These would be great picnic baskets, too!
Design Sponge posted blogger and etsy shop owner Katherine Jalaty’s folder tutorial. What every crafty business needs for keeping all those pesky receipts neat and pretty.
My five year old has been yearning for a nightgown. gingercake‘s pillowcase nightgown might just be what she gets. I would imagine the cotton would feel SO comfortable. Perfect for summer or you could use flannel ones for winter!
Instead of bringing a book to bed, Emmmy Lizzzy show how to bring a bed to books with this clever tutorial for covering wall shelves with vintage sheets.
Author of Sewing Green, Betz White gives us a shoe bag tutorial using vintage sheets. So practical for traveling or even just keeping your nice shoes from getting banged up in the closet.
The Vintage Sheet Blog has a ton of great tutorials like this market tote one. They are also have a vintage sheet FQs giveaway open until April 7. Hurry, before it becomes just a thing in the past!
