So I bought all of these things at the beginnig of the school year (August) and it turns out this was my first and last year in the dorms (YES!).  Next year my bed will be bigger (so there is no resizing these extra long twin sheets to fit a bigger bed--at least I don't think so--correct me if I'm wrong please lol).  I love the softness of the pink ones (they are jersey cotton) and would like to make something that lets me continue to enjoy that softness.  The blue ones I don't care so much about.  I am considering curtains.  The bedspread is cheaply made, after only two washes the corners no longer have stuffing in them.  I just don't know, there are so many thnings!  Here are some pictures.

Sorry about the messy dorm room, and the fact that the sheets aren't so visible in this pic.  (Notice my coffee cup even matches my comforter!)  The comforter is reversible, but I am partial to the blue side.
Sorry I forgot to mention that the blue sheets are made of cotton.

Make a bunch of pillows out of the soft jersey material!!  that way you can still cuddle up with them, and having a bunch of them like that is soooo inviting when you have them all piled up on the bed just so  Smiley

Pillows for sure, and pajamas. People stoled-did-id my ideas.

Another thing you could do is stuffed animals, and that could use all of the fabric between the bedspread, etc. If the bedspread/other set of sheets are cotton, you could make bags/purses/totes out of it.

I like to use old pillow cases to make tote bags. Grin they are perfect.
