Fun Fabric Friday : Vintage Sheets

I haven’t done one of these in a while and I thought it might be fun to share some of my vintage sheet hoard.  I have been collecting and using vintage sheets throughout my home and in my sewing for many years now, but recently I have been unable to cut anything.  I don’t know…
