So after hacking into my vintage sheets last week, I am left with the dilemma of what to do with the middle part of the sheet. You know the thinner central part which I know has been worn down by constant use (unless you are fortunate enough to find them unused).
I did have them in a messy pile waiting to be chopped into cleaning clothes. One night while lying in bed, trying to sleep but thinking of crafty things, as you do, I had a spot of brilliance.
Next morning, I was into my pile, ripping them into 2 inch wide strips, and making this pile of Heidi-like plaits (there was a Heidi in my class at school, and she did indeed wear her hair in two long thick plaits).
I am, of course, not planning an extravagant wig, but one of these beauties.
As always on Thursdays, you can be endlessly inspired at Kirsty's...
p.s. the vintage squares are sewn together, hoping to actually have a finished product to show you next week
