Love Lives

More Rugs From Recycled Sheets
The following rug from this post started a trend in our household:
With these rugs:
Most sheets are thrift store purchases at $1 each....
the rest...well...
never mind that our beds are void of sheets. ;-)

Made from a pattern by Kelli Bryan purchased here.

May love live in your household too!

  6. I'm in love with them all! How do you find sheets in such bright colors? And for a dollar! What a deal! Have a lovely weekend. I'm off to crochet...breakfast is done, wash is on and powder bathroom is cleaned. Now I can relax and work on my Fruit Punch Tote.

    1. Seems like the thrift store sheets are mostly bright colors...especially the children's rooms sheets and twin sizes. The nice thing is that these thrift store sheets are washed so many times before they make their way to me that they don't fade much more.

      I'm loving your Fruit Punch Tote, Sandy. Can't wait to see it all done up. :-)

  12. Å, de var kjempesøte. Jeg hekler også tepper av gamle dynetrekk, men de er runde. Så morsomt med hjertefasong. Kanskje jeg må prøve meg på et som ligner det blå og hvite. Min favoritt. D
