I love finding new ways to sew with things I already have. Vintage Sheets and Handkerchiefs are two of my favorite items to repurpose. I’m lucky enough to live in an area where you can find them pretty easily! If you love to sew with Vintage Linens too; I thought I’d share with you some of my very favorite Vintage Sheet Sewing Projects from around the web!
I’ve looked high and low for project ideas for you. A few years ago a friend made me some PJ bottoms from a Vintage Sheet. They were oh so comfy and cute. I started thinking about those PJ’s a few days ago and hunting Pinterest for tutorials; which led me to the idea to create a collection of cute Vintage Linen Sewing Projects to share with you!!
Just click the photo or the text to take you to the original tutorial!
