As I was going through closets and drawers, organizing, of course, I came across a large pile of sheets that had not been used in a long time. I packed them into the bag to donate, and then realized that the fabric was perfect for a few sewing projects.
So, what to do with king size sheets? Pajamas of course!!!!!
I love pajamas, and I am pretty sure that I have many a blog post to prove that. First, I just love to hang out around the house in fun lounge pants, and also, who could possibly have too many pairs of pajamas????
Once I was done with the PJ’s, I was staring at the mound of pillow cases on my sewing table, and I knew that they would make some cool little tote bags for my night time knitting, or a fun overnight when I stay at my parent’s house.
The cool thing about using a pillow case to make a tote is that if you use the open side of the case, you already have a great hem for the bags, and all that you need to do is attach the handles to the top. Seriously, this was about a 20 minute project, and it yielded a fun little bag that I am sure will have many uses.
Repurposing is a ton of fun. Finding new ways to use old items seems like the perfect way to live simply and creatively. I have a ton more sheets, and I see a lot more pajamas in my future, as well as my kiddos.
