I would use them for everything! Mainly purses, though.

leigh7911 said...

I never know for sure what I'm gonna do with a specific fabric until it's in my hands, but I'm sure that between my sister-in-law (and our two toddler girls that need cute clothes!) we could come up with something. :)

Tulle and Torts said...

I think I would either use them for a bunting project or for purses/bags.

Crissy said...

I am dying to make a vintage sheet quilt, I have a small collection started but this would really kick start my idea!!

I would love love love this lot of fabric! I just started crafting about a year ago and I don't have much of a supply to work with - I mainly create stuff to give away - this would greatly help me out! And it would offset my mossy oak and bob the builder fabric that I have now. I have 3 boys- nothing is Gorky in my house. Lol this would be delightful!

Jennilyn said...

Quilts, of course! I've been using sheets as quilt backs and have no problem with them being quiltable and holding up well to washing.

Dee said...

This is probably one of the most awesomest giftaways today!

Meg said...

I love vintage sheets. I made a shower curtain from one, but I would use these for some summer dresses for my two girls. The fabric from sheets is lightweight and has usually been washed so many times it makes soft, perfect little dresses. Pick me!

Anonymous said...

Well, it looks like there are a lot of sheets in that box. But I would make curtains out of some (I definitely need some new ones), patchwork bags out of others. And maybe a quilt, depending on what sort of time and cloth is left. XD

I'm in the process of cutting out and making a scrap fabric quilt for my mom. This is nothing but upcycled and repurposed fabrics. This would greatly help me out because I wanted the quilt to be "reversible". :)

Sarahby said...

I've been dying to make one of those lattice quilts. I think all of these beautiful scraps should go back on a bed :)

chrissie.bby14 said...

I'm making pillowcases for this girl I know. Her family doesnt have much and I try to help them out as much as I can. They requested pillowcases for their Christmas gift this year. The girl loves vintage things, but doesn't get to express how much she likes it because they have no money. They scraps would be greatly helpful to make pillowcases!

chrissie.bby14 at yahoo.com

Sharon said...

I'd make some purses and a few doll blankets and probably some funky rag dolls. I haven't made rag dolls yet, but I've been wanting to learn and that sure looks like fun fabric to use. :)

Jenny said...

my best friend loves vintage sheets...i would certainly make her a quilt for her bed...

Caren said...

Oh I absolutely love scraps! I would make a bunch of super cute dresses for my baby girl!

StephanieS said...

I'm hoping to make a big blanket. I have a vintage sheet and couple pillow cases already so that box of scraps would really help. The fabric is so soft and the beautiful colors and designs, I can't resist. Thanks for the chance to win. Happy Christmas. stephspitzer at gmail dot com

Cricket said...

I've been collecting vintage sheet squares to make a quilt for myself. Something soft and delicious. But I would also use scraps for embellishing little girls clothes (because it sometimes seems that is all I ever make), or a little tiny set of placemats and napkins to go with my daughter's miniature vintage coffee service.

Anonymous said...

SO hard for me to know what I would use them for until I see them up close. I have used vintage sheets in the past for aprons, skirts and scarves. kwarmelink(at)gmail(dot)com.

thecurryseven said...

All those long, long gathered tiers on little girls' twirly skirts.

thecurryseven at sbcglobal dot net

Micahellen said...

I would use the scraps for covered buttons...I make earrings, bookmarks, and bobby pins from fabric scraps :)

Micah

Osage River Quilt Company said...

I would turn it over to my sewing group, Serial Quilters, and see how far it could go in creating everything for a home - quilts, pot holders, placemats, tea towels, curtains, etc. Then the entire collection would be donated to the Willow Domestic Violence Center in Lawrence, KS. They could either auction it off or give it to a family making a new start. If KU Coach Bill Self can wear red heels for this group, I think we can step up as well! This give away would be a wonderful starting point and a rewarding project for my group!

heidila said...

Wow! How fun! I have been thinking about making a picnic quilt, these scraps would be perfect. If there is enough left over perhaps a matching skirt for me!

Em said...

Vintage sheets into a new quilt. Perfect.

Oh, vintage sheets!
Quilts, quilts, quilts -- nothing like a modern quilt made out of vintage sheets.

Sheetal said...

Megan said...

Hmm, I'd probably make lots of different things, but first, dresses for my daughter and maybe some matching dresses for her bears and doll. Thanks!
