When I think Earth Day I immediately think of recycled crafts – you know, crafts using upcycled materials.  Give new life to something old.  My favorite favorite thing to repurpose is ….. SHEETS!!  They are so cheap at thrift stores and yard sales and give you so much yardage!  And they come in such a great variety of colors and patterns.

I’ve rounded up a dozen of my projects using sheets…
