Bed Sheet Do Over!

6 Sep

I had this bed sheet lying around and was determined to make a few things out of it so that’s exactly what I did this week! Throughout the next two/three weeks you’ll see other projects that I’ve done with this bed sheet so this won’t be the only one πŸ™‚

The pattern on this sheet was way too cute to just toss so I decided to take off the fitted part of it to make it easier to work with.

I took my rolling cutter and cut around the edges of the elastic until it was completely off.

Then I did the same thing with the seams – cutting them out to get the fabric so it would lay flat.

I’m keeping the elastic edges for another project you’ll see soon πŸ™‚ I’m pretty darn excited about it!

After that is easy to lay flat – it just needed a little ironing and I cut the pieces to make my first project out of all this fabulous material.

I cut out the pieces for …. you guessed it – a pocket pillow!

I’m going to make another matching buddy for this one to have and then I’ve already thought of two more projects to do! I’m so glad I kept this bedding around – it’s going to make a ton of fun projects. Who would have thought this one thing could last me so many hours of fun!?

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,

J

    So much fabric in a bed sheet! I found a nice one that i’ll be turning into a dress for my oldest next spring! For 1$ a bed sheet, that’s a cheap way to make a cool garnment! Your pillow looks so yummy! I’m not forgetting for your parcel… I just need to find some time πŸ˜‰ i think you will like it!

      Oh no worries πŸ˜‰
