Ah, Vintage Cotton Floral Sheets!

I will never get tired of looking at these and finding them in thrift stores!

Check out this pair of Wabasso pillowcases I found in a local Value Village:

They were so crisp still!

And then this beautiful find at a newly-opened Value Village a couple of hours away:

I was so excited to find this yellow rose vintage sheet because I had had one years ago and used it up in making patchwork curtains.  So now, more of this fabric to play with.

And then, my most exciting vintage sheet find in a long time….I never, ever thought I would come across this one in this colour, but I did (at that new, lower-priced Value Village!):

I. freaked. out.  I made my husband take photos of me with it and send them to my daughter (who doesn’t have the same taste but gets my love of this stuff).   She immediately texted back, “BUY THEM.”  So I did.  I have sheets (and remnants) in this pattern in blue, green, and purple, too.  Oh, and not only was there a top sheet in the store, there was also a fitted sheet and two pillowcases!  Guess who scooped those off the rack before anyone else could discover them.

Oh what shall I make with these?  Oh, I know; more bags!  More on my latest bag creations in an upcoming post….
