Doll Nightgown with Vintage Bed Sheet

This doll nightgown is made with a cotton flannel bed sheet and eyelet lace.  I had fun putting this together and plan to make a bonnet to go with the nightgown.  Also, I have enough fabric from the bed sheet to make my daughter a matching nightgown.  Cotton flannel bed sheets are so great for pajamas and sewing projects that require lots of fabric.

I am in the middle of organizing my sewing room.  Here is a picture of one wall that is finally put together nicely.  The rest of the room is a disaster!  My plan is to keep it neat but we'll see how long that lasts, especially with the holidays coming up...  I folded my fabric into nice, neat stacks using this fabric folding tutorial from In Color Order blog.

This last picture is of an apron I made using a pattern from the book, Girl's World.  The main fabric is a vintage bed sheet.  If you don't like greens on the yellow side, you are going to find this awful.  But, I love the colors so it appeals to me.  The only thing is that I'd hate to get this messy!
