Just wanted to share an idea with you. I was at our local thrift shop to buy a sheet to re-cover the pads in our dogs cages and I bought a beautiful sheet for a $1.50 and find it's too nice to use in dog beds. Don't know what I will use it for now but got to thinking about all the decorating possibilities sheets have. I know some people are on very tight budgets. This might be an idea that could help.
Mine is also a rug craft; I split them into strips (especially flannel sheets) and make braided rugs.

I use 2 sheets to cover a light quilt that's worn. Tack the sheets every 6 inches then hem it on your sewing machine. You have a new quilt.

Sheets are great, both new and used. 1. When purchasing new sheets, buy sheets individually and buy an extra sheet and make your own pillow cases, cheaper and you can get extras.
We are looking for all the practical uses for old sheets that are no longer in good enough shape to use.
