If you have a lot of mismatched sheets or older sheets that you no longer use, check out this round-up of repurposing ideas for using them. Even if you don’t have any you can find sheets at thrift stores and garage sales for super cheap all the time.
If you sew your or you children’s clothing, good cotton sheets are great for making summer clothes. The best part about using sheets for clothing is you can find a king size flat sheet for under 10 dollars in thrift stores. That is over four yard of material and a good quality cotton material is going to cost you a lot more than ten dollars for 4 yards.
104 Homestead has done a round-up of 16 more uses for bed sheets. I love the idea of reusing good quality cotton sheets rather than throwing them away. Not only are they super cheap to buy but as an added bonus they are usually super soft as well. Sundresses and pajama pants are pretty easy to make even for beginner sewers.
