Vintage Sheets on the Go


Beautiful Vintage Photography by Simply Hue Designs
Why would you leave behind all the comforts of home when you leave your home? Take a little piece of home with you by making some of these pretty items that I found around the internet. Or, make them as a gift for a traveling loved one.
1. Pocket Tissue Holder
Don't leave home without your tissues.These would be perfect for a purse, carry-on, briefcase or diaper bag.

2. Pillowcase Drawstring Bag
I need this bag to haul my dry cleaning. It would also work in a suitcase to bring home the dirty clothes.  I'm a sucker for anything made from a pillowcase.

3. Vintage Sheet Camera Strap
Not only does this camera strap look more comfortable that the one that comes with the camera, it's also much more pretty.

4. Vintage Fabric Lined Picnic Basket
I love picnics and I collect vintage picnic baskets. I love the idea of lining the basket with a pretty vintage sheet. Gotta love her picnic blanket, too.

Beach blanket from vintage sheets and a vintage chenille bedspread? Yes, please.

7. Lined Pillowcase Market Bag
There are a lot of amazing pillowcase market bag tutorials out there but I love this lined one that Cassandra  makes. And, it has a pocket!

8. Quilted Travel Pillow
I love roadtrips. I always seem to take a little nap on long journeys. I'm drooling over this vintage sheet covered quilted travel pillow.

9. Pillowcase Kindle Cover
Speaking of car trips, my family cannot leave the house without a Kindle. Susan's Kindle cover is absolutely gorgeous! And, she used a pillowcase. :)

10. Thrifted Sheet Eye Mask
If all that reading makes you tired, take a nap with a cute eye mask. I made this one for my niece's slumber party last year.

I totally need a vintage suitcase so I can mod podge some vintage sheet scraps to it. Love this idea. I think that I need these shoes too. :)

12. Pillowcase Garment Bag
Don't like that yucky plastic stuff from the dry cleaners? This looks like a much better way to protect our clothes. Just pack the clothes in the garment bag inside the suitcase. Easy peasy.

13. Fabric Passport Cover
Maybe you are going very very far away. Like, another galaxy. You may need a C3PO passport cover.

14. DIY Luggage Fabric Luggage Tag
Wherever you are going, you don't want to lose your luggage. I like this tutorial. The blog is not in English but the photos and instructions are easy to follow.
