old sheets

If you like to sew here's an idea. Lately everything has been going up in prices. Fabric is 7.99 a yard now. Check out your local goodwill, or thrift store. You can use old sheets as fabric. That is pretty much what they are already. Large pieces of vintage fabric that is hemmed at the edges. Just wash it, if it is white or supposed to be, bleach it a little but not to much as to not deteriorate it. Here are some items i've made with sheet fabric.(click on them, they are available in my etsy)

another designer whose made items out of vintage sheets as fabric is jill bliss (bellow)
