Last year I bought new sets of bedsheets as they were getting bit past their best. Normally I would have thrown them into the fabric recycling bin, but nowadays I keep all that kind of stuff in case I can think of a means to upcycle it! Cue the purchase of a box of Dylon fabric dye and a wee stint in the washing machine and my previously washed out beige fitted sheets are now a blue/grey colour!
|Be gone horrible colour, hello springtime hue!|
Once they're dry, I'll be slicing them into long strips and sewing the strips together to make one great bit long ball of 'yarn'. Then the extreme crochet begins! I haven't fully decided on what to make with them but at the moment I'm thinking of making a bedside rug. Something quick easy and simple yet effective.
I made a special effort not to make them pink. Are you proud of me? It was a bit of a challenge but I did it! And although they didn't quite come out the colour I was hoping for, I rather like them!
