One of my favorite uses for cute and colorful vintage sheets is as material for aprons.
Just like old tablecloths, vintage sheets are made from great quality cotton and you can find them frequently at yard and estate sales and thrift shops too.
Before you get started, make sure to launder them in hot water and if there are stains, soak in OxiClean. If stains persist, simply avoid them when you lay out your pattern pieces.
You can find this and more fun projects in my book: The Farm Chicks in the Kitchen.
