Fun with Vintage bedsheets ! :)

This post is going to be short and sweet because the writing sector of my brain isn’t quite cooperating with me at the moment. I have had these 2 vintage bedsheets sitting in my stash for quite a while so I thought today that I would pull them out and get creative with them! The first is a self-drafted circle skirt I used what I think is a vintage curtain panel but it may be a top sheet I am not 100% sure (I think that both fabrics are probably late 60′s to 70′s) and for the contrasting waistband I just used some pretty yellow broadcloth I bought yesterday on a whim because it was on sale. :) Love when things like that work out! It is a bit springy…but I think with a pair of darker tights, a pretty blue cardigan it will make a nice fall skirt due to the fact that the fabric is actually quite heavy for a top sheet.

The 2nd project was also a self drafted pattern that I used a pair of pajama pants that I have and made a fun bright pair of pajamas with! These are super light, soft, and comfy and I have some more of this material left over so I may make a matching top or a pair of pajama shorts since I worry that this much print would be overwhelming. :) At the end of the day I am really happy with both of these projects and excited that they turned out well without any problems :) .

 

I think that I am getting the hang of this whole sewing thing! I have a lot of exciting things happening on the horizons which I will be blogging/posting about in the weeks to come. I just want to say a big thanks to all of the wonderful contributors on this site that have really inspired me and given me the courage and strength to keep at it! :)

These look great. I am now very inspired to go and raid the linens section o the op shop. Especially for pyjama pants
