Don’t Throw Out Those Sheets

I love sheets – whenever I see sheets on clearance that are not just solid prints I pick them up.  There are so many things you can use sheets for.  Today – I am doing the most simple project – making a set of pillowcases from a twin sheet.

First I simply measured the width of the pillows and sewed a strip (right sides facing) all the way down the length of the sheet.  Then I measured the length of the pillows and cut one length from the upper hem of the sheet and one from the lower hem of the sheet.  The result is that I only had to sew two sides of the pillow cases – the other two were the fold and the original hem.

Five minute pillow cases and way less than the cost of fabric or pre-made pillow cases.
