No, I am not addicted to anything illegal or immoral. And nothing fattening for a change, either.
What I am a little obsessed with these days are thrift stores and old sheets. Vintage, funky, cool, soft, pretty and sometimes simply just old.
The above is a very small sample of what I have collected so far.
What do I do with these sheets? Well, first I wash and dry them, fold them and try to find a place to store them out of the light and out of the way. A little hard to do considering that I also have a considerable fabric stash. And that’s where the “oh, no!” comes in.
But I am buying them with a purpose, they aren’t just meant to sit there and take over the house. Oh, no! I actually cut into them and sew with them.
So far, I’ve made two very big bags and have cut out a few more (did you know that a king sized pillowcase is large enough for one of these bags?). One’s mine (the not so pretty one, I used a marginal sheet to try out the pattern (to be found here), the other is meant for my daughter. I hope she likes it. It’s not as blue as it could have been.
