This winter I have been trying to find flannel crib sheets. We got one as a hand me down and I don't really know if Austin sleeps better, but I feel better knowing he is on a nice warm and comfy sheet at night. But, I have had no luck finding them in the stores.
So, after thinking through both dilemas I remembered that I had a nice big piece of flannel that I purchased a while ago with no specific purpose. Dustin and I were in JoAnn Fabric buying foam for our kitchen chairs and I happened to notice the flannel because it says "North Woods" on it. Dustin works on the North Kaibab Forest so we thought it was neat and bought it with the purpose to be determined.
What I did was ripped out the seams in the Target sheet and removed the elastic. I ironed out that sheet to use as a pattern to cut the flannel. Then I sewed the edges and sewed a pocket around the edge for the elastic. I threaded the elastic fromthe Target sheet and sewed it all together and there you go, now I have a new flannel sheet for the crib. I'll use the fabric from the Target sheet in another project.
