Basic Grey Sampler With Vintage Sheets

Basic Grey contacted me awhile back and asked if I would like to receive some of their lovely products and if I would like to give some of their products to you my lovely readers.... YES... 

I received this cool sampler.


This is what it looked like before I got my hands on it.

and...

here it is after I added Vintage Sheets.


I chose some of my favorite vintage sheets. I used a drinking glass to make a template and then I traced the template onto the VS's ... and cut them out.


I then hand sewed them on with some aqua embroidery floss... it took a bit of time but looks super cute... I can change it some day if I want to this way.

Thank you for visiting the Vintage Sheet Blog today. And, thank you Basic Grey for the chance to create with some fun new products.

I checked out Basic Grey and I love everything, but if I had to pick just one thing that I got such a kick out of, it would be the gift card holders! How cute and clever! I also love the jelly roll of Origins that I have sitting in my sewing room...someday I might even open it and use it!
