    We upgraded to a king bed and now have several queen sized sheets. I was wondering if anyone used them for anything creative?
    I'd use them for our dog, but he has a huge fabric eating fetish, so it's kind of a waste.
    Thanks!

    I use sheets for my birds covers and for my chickens since they like the softness they laid in them [​IMG]

    I was thinking of using one or two of them as a wind break for the chicken run.
    Don't think my birds will care to lay in it..

    Frost protection over blueberry bushes and other tender spring plants.

    you could get some quilt stuffing and take two top sheets, put the stuffing in the middle, sew together.. Also sew patterns thru the whole thing, OR, tie thread roses thru out the blanket. Will make a nice soft snuggy blanket... Can also dye it, embroider, what ever... Can cut the sheets in half the short way and make the blankets throw size. Couch blankets.

    I use them for covering plants. They also make great tents, teepees and hideouts, according to my kiddos.

    You could donate them to the closest food closet place...they often have clothing and such that they give to the needy also. I imagine a nice set of sheets would be a welcome blessing!

    My mom tears them in strips & makes rugs out of them.
