woo ladies! You ready for this mass of vintage sheet sewing and crafty making inspiration?! All the images should link to their original posts. There's a chance Ive missed a couple as Ive split linking this up over a couple of days as it's quite a large post. If I've missed anything let me know and I will fix them ^_^ I love all these ideas and Ive lots and lots of off cuts from my sheet Etsy shop that I can use.
I really like this apron pattern. Looks like Bets Whites pillowcase apron but it looks great.
Im always afraid to cover a lampshade with fabric as Im scared of fire hazards but if I could get fire retardant spray or something I would definitely do this. I must check if you could do it from a pillowcase. That would be very useful indeed! I had a fat quarter of this actual fabric from america that I love and have just cut into patchwork squares.
Love all these pillows! Click on the image above to visit In Colour Order for a vintage sheet cushion tutorial.
The pattern on this quilt is absolutely beautiful. Love those sheets. Im not sure if I like the large pieces... an easier option than cutting up lots of squares and stitching them together but the patterns are gorgeous.
Candance Todd has offered lots of lovely tutorials on her blog - the sewing machine cover above and the lovely ruffly aprons below ^_^
I like the little girls option ^_^
A nap time mat! For kids? um.... cute or what! Make a giant one for me :p I really like the pattern. Ive included this because friends of mine are having babies left, right and centre so this would be a lovely idea for a 'crawling mat'.
Awesome! I would have loved a tent like this when I was growing up! Although I did have one of those plastic wendy houses. I got very tall very quickly though so I grew out of it pretty fast which was pants. I want a tent now!
These decorative cushions are lovely with the band across the front. Excellent idea and tutorial via the image.
I know someone who would love a tie collection like this!
This is another excellent idea for me to make use of the fabric remnants I have ^_^
Such a beautiful bedroom in the vintage style ^_^ I love it! And the little crochet garlands.
Vintage sheet napkins or coasters. A lovely idea! If I were to make these I would do that trick with Silicone sealant to make them waterproof.
You could pretty up your office file folders with some mod podgy and a fat quarter!
Oh Dottie I love yoooou... such lovely little cupboard curtains!
and these!! I love these so much. I attempted to create these for my wee crafty room but it made the room so dark because its on the shadowed side of the house. I might just put them up when its cold and dark outside!
This is a brilliant idea for warm weather to keep the flies out! Some lace screens for your window.
Patchwork awning?! A cover for a bed?! I love the mix of fabrics. Beautiful and very homemade. I love it.
Have you lots of sewing ideas on your 'to do' list? I have so much to make ^_^
Lots of love Claire xo
