101 things to do with vintage sheets...

Well, I haven't come up with 101 things to do, but here are at least 10 ideas.
A few summers ago I made this duvet, and since I've been on a sewing kick lately I thought I'd make some envelope pillow covers to match.

♥Summer Bedding♥

There's that time a day when the sun hits our patio that makes a long hot summer day even hotter, so I thought this might be a good idea: a patio sunblocker/shade maker/super-bright-light around 4p.m. detractor! Made by sewing vintage sheets together~ pretty & functional♥

As usual, you can always find the best inspiration on flickr!

You can seriously get lost for hours browsing around this site~ no joke, I just did and now my butt's asleep so I gotta get up and move :/

As the last post said, "LOVE the shademaker!!". I have been picking up beautiful unused sheets like this for a song! So hard not to just put them on the bed, but really like some of your ideas! Thanks!

I love the sheets, also, where did you find that bed? I've been searching for one forever.

Thanks, it actually makes the heat a little more bearable lately :)

Nadpip83- I bought my bed at a flea market years ago. I think I've bought most of my bed frames either at the flea market or thrift stores, they're the best places to find vintage beds.

I love all the different colors and patterns of the vintage sheets you've shown!

I use them to create the backgrounds for shadowboxes I develop showcasing vintage baby clothes!
