From Crib to College: Upcycled Bedspread from Crib Sheets
When our youngest son graduated from a crib to a twin bed I saved a couple crib sheets which were made of sturdy fabric and were still in good shape. Then I cut them up in strips to use for the main part of the quilt. I added some strips of other fabric I had on hand, a large piece for the top to make the bedspread long enough, and used a blue cotton sheet we had on hand for the back. The filling was a queen size bat of low-loft batting which I doubled (bought a few years ago for $1 still in its package at a yard sale). He is pleased with his new blanket and I'm pleased that I could make something useful from items we already had on hand.
What have you upcylced lately? I'm always looking for new ideas for old things.
