Thrift Shop Thursday

Vintage Sheets

Vintage Sheets could quite possibly be my favorite Thrift Shop find. I quite often daydream about all of the lovely things that I could make out of these beautiful, soft and cozy vintage fabrics.  I think quite possibly you could make well, anything, could you not?
Here is a selection of some of my favorite Vintage Sheets from my collection.  Following the photographs is a list of my favorite sewing books and the projects that I hope to miraculously find the time in the near future to make.
