This was the pattern of the sheet set that I bought. I fell in love with it when I saw it!

I recovered six dining room chairs...
and a no sew curtain for the guest room. I used the flat sheet for this because the edges were already finished. Then I folded down the top of the sheet to make a "built in" valance look and "clamped" the fabric with the curtain rod rings that have "clamps" on them! I don't know what you call those things-but I love them!!! You can buy them everywhere. (JoAnns, hobby lobby, Target etc.) They don't put any holes in the sheet so if I wanted to, I could use it for something else later. Sometimes I clip a white sheet as "lining" to the back of the sheet so that when you are looking at the windows from the outside, you don't see a busy pattern.
Hiding underneath this faux headboard is a body pillow. I took the two king pillowcases from the sheet set and put one on each end, overlapping them in the middle.
This was a square that I cut from the fitted sheet to top an ugly, plain, round plywood end table (I think you know the kind I am talking about). The white fabric underneath is an old linen tablecloth from an antique store.
I also used the part of the same fitted sheet for this chair (that was sewn by my local seamstress).
And... I still had fabric left over! If I wanted to I could use the rest to cover lampshades, make pillows, or sew a funky skirt. :) So, there are lots of great things that you can use the fabric for just from a humble, simple little sheet set!
