Hooked Up Vintage Sheets

Vintage sheets are gaining a reputation for their versatility. Using strips of sheets and crochet hooks (or knitting needles), many crafters have transformed bedsheets into practical works of art.

I found lots of inspiration around the internet. Click on the sources for more information.

Vintage Sheet Pillows
This cat looks perfectly content with his crocheted pillow options. I love the neutral colors.

I shared this cute knitted vintage sheet pillow in my vintage sheet pillow round up. It looks so soft and cozy.

Crocheted Vintage Sheet Rugs

There are lots of posts and tutorials on using vintage sheets to crochet a rag rug. I like the variety of shapes and patterns in these.

This one would look so pretty in a little girl's room.

source
I love the fringe edges on this one.

source
This bath mat was knitted. I love the chunky texture. It looks awesome.

source
Jessica started her rug as a winter project. I'd love to see how large it turned out.

source
I love the star shape of this bath mat made using crib and bedsheets. Sara shares some great tips for crocheting with vintage sheets, here.
source
This is a log cabin style rug made from mostly Mickey Mouse sheets. Love the colors and pattern.

source

This little doll rug is adorable. Everything pictured is made from recycled materials.

Crocheted Bags
I'm always searching for the perfect bag. I like that these bags are flexible because they are crocheted and durable because they are made from sheets.

source

The color combo of this bag is adorable. I don't think anyone would guess it's made from used sheets.

Crocheted Bowls and Baskets

Not too long ago I shared Sherry's colorful vintage sheet rag rugs. Well, she also makes bright bowls from crocheted vintage sheets.

Look at the modern Scandinavian style of this white bowl. So clean. Detailed instructions are included.

I love decorations that can be used year after year. This basket is so precious. I love the bow on the handle.
source
I don't usually post a lot of projects directly from Flickr but I thought you'd want to see all of Emily's crocheted vintage sheet projects in one place. Love this basket from thrifted sheets.

Crochet on the Table
Although I did a whole post on vintage sheets on the table, I love these little gems crocheted from vintage sheets.

Don't you adore this pretty peach potholder made from a thrifted sheet?

source
I've shared these coasters before in the round up of vintage sheets on the table. I love the double crocheting here; first with the vintage sheets, and then with the yarn for the trim. So pretty.

source
Here is a table mat made by Sally from American Recycle.

Fun Stuff Crocheted from Vintage Sheets
The bear was crocheted from vintage sheets. His scarf is a vintage sheet. Some of his stuffing is used sheets. Love him!
source

OMG, I am totally in love with these crocheted Christmas tree ornaments. They would be fun on a tree or on a package. Favorite!
