I thought I would post this question to see what everyone has to say about it.
I recently began following your blog because I've been bitten by the "vintage sheets bug." :) I've had several given to me and just recently picked up a pile while we were on vacation. I think I've gone through at least half of your archives in the last two days.
But now I have a question that I don't remember seeing addressed anywhere: How do you store your vintage sheets, whole or cut? Do you store fitted sheets any differently?
The only reason I ask is that 99% of my stash is flat sheets, but the 1% that are fitted drive me batty because they don't lay flat. I like neat stacks, not leaning towers. :) If it were you, would you cut up the fitted sheets into fat quarters or would you simply cut off the elastic and seams to make them lay flat that way?
Thanks for any help you can give me!
Well Sophia, I keep all my fat quarters folded and stacked neatly. Scraps are kept in a clear tote. Flat sheets and folded sheets in another tote, not real organized... have to dig a lot. If the fitted sheets make you crazy, cut them down into either fat quarters or flat sheets.
Thanks for a great question.
