Ralph Lauren Bed Sheet Repurposed

Hi Everyone!

A couple of weekends ago I bought this Ralph Lauren, queen size bed sheet for only.....Are you ready for this?... $4.00! Can you believe it?!

The only thing was, I thought it was way too pretty to hide under my bedspread. So I assigned it a new purpose....

It is now a duvet cover for the down throw that sits at the foot of our bed. Oh, but that's not all.

There was enough fabric left over to also make a sweet little decorative throw pillow and...

a pretty little bag for me and...Yes, there is more...

an apron.

A duvet, pillow, bag and apron for $4.00...Not too bad!


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

Realmente Ana, a esto lo llamamos aquí una ganga!! por sólo 4 dólares tienes un precioso conjunto con un estampado ideal.
Por cierto, la foto de mi blog, por la que preguntabas, no la tomé yo, es uno de esos bonitos rincones que esconde mi isla. Cuando el mar está en calma, el agua es así de cristalina.
Feliz semana y felicidades por tu santo (aquí la festividad de San Joaquín y Santa Ana se celebra el próximo martes 26 de Julio)

I am thinking of making a purse for myself, but I don't have a pattern so I have to think it through first.
