Flannel Sheets

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

We like flannel sheets, nice, warm, large flannel sheets. So I made some the homestead way (I posted this on CS, but I think you all might be interested). My daughter gave me all her baby's flannel receiving blankets when she was through with them. I sewed them together to make one very large sheet. Actually with the sheets and other flannel material from nightgowns/shirts etc. I made three very large sheets. My husband doesn't care if they have bunnies or duckies or whatever, he likes being warm and saving money.

This has recently been on my mind as well. I have some yardage of fleece material and I would like to make a type of sheet for our bed, our house gets cold in the winter. How do you attach it to the bed. I am not good with elastic. Guess I could learn. Safety pins come unhooked. We are both tossers and turners, and just tucking them in seems to create a big tangled mess. HELP!

I put a large piece of polar fleese fabric under my bottom sheet and use a flannel sheet for the top sheet. Keeps you comfie cozie. I can't stand to sleep on top of flannel because of the the way you get those little fabric bits that ball up on them. Feels like there is sand in the bed. I just think I am the princes and the pea LOL
