Normally I'm bursting with ideas, but the holidays are my over-crafted time so my mind is a million other places.

Anyway, I have three sets of Queen-sized satin sheets (in gold, red and hot pink) and I want to do something with them, but I can't figure out what!  I was going to donate them but I'm an unemployed college student and I'd rather crank a Christmas gift (or two!) out of them and hang on to my spare change!

recently I read that satin pillowcases or pillows where used to preserve up-do's. I would assume that such a thing would be handy for curls or such too. Smiley

If you want something done right, you gotta DIY

Graphic goddess, beading for my sanity.

Wristlet bags? I had one made out of the excess of my wedding dress. With these, you can embellish with pretty shiny things...

Or travel pouches for jewelry etc...

Modified to add...

You can do a striped color on color pattern. Just alternate the top side and the bottom side of the sheets. Heck, that would be pretty cool pillows, too! Or a table runner, placemats (those might have to be re-inforced), table protectors (like what doilies used to be used for). You can make a set of custom dinner napkins.

Ouch. Too early for these ideas that are flooding my mind. Must fine coffee now...
