vintage sheets


I always feel a bit sad when I cut into
one of my vintage sheets .


But then again if I'm making something for
someone else I feel a bit more confident
that if I stuff it up there is plenty more
beautiful fabric to work with .


There is also the added bonus that if I make
something for someone else and I just adore
it and can't bear to part with it
there is plenty more to make one exactly
the same for me !

Oh and that is SUCH a pretty sheet Clare! I dont have any luck finding them in op shops - each shop I check doesnt have a single one!

Those sheets are gorgeous Clare! I have trouble cutting into mine too. Im pretty sure they are the exact same print i had on my bed as a wee one!

Oh I know that feeling and as I have only ever managed to find a few in my travels I am even more hesitant to cut into them.
Your sheet is just gorgeous and I am sure your gift will be well received :)

Love the sheet in you pictures. I am still cogitating what to make with the Rainy Day fabric you sent to me. Lots of ideas but not enough time!

Yes I can relate to that.. sometimes I wish they'd get threadbare so that the process of chopping them up is easier!

Lovely! This sadly reminds me of all the beautiful sheets that I have discarded along the way before I discovered sewing and crafts. But then I think perhaps a talented person like yourself snapped them up and breathed new life into them. xxx

It's the first chop that is so hard. I keep looking at vintage tablecloths in my collection of fabrics and knowing that it would be so much easier to use a piece if I had already used a piece. pathetic really. Cherrie

Think of it as sharing the love Clare. Now someone else can enjoy this pretty print too.

Allie said...

Oh that is beautiful - I don't cut mine up, I use them for quilt backings!

Angie said...

So pretty, can't wait to see what you do with it. I use old sheets to back my quilts with, the fabric is always so soft!
