So no one said there was a size limit on the size of sheet used.  While a lot of people seem to be using king flats, I went with the smallest fitted sheet possible!
I squeezed a dress (lined with the sheet) little booty cover, cute shoes (Inspired  by this post and the link there in  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=348768.0  )  A waist bow, and a headband complete with a flower made of scraps out of that sheet!  All that's left is stuff that went into my scraps to be spun bag they were so small.

Be prepared to Squeeeeee!!!!

"Side view"


Bow detail:


Shoes on:


Shoes off:


Headband with "scraps" flower;


To show the sheet before.  It is sitting on a double sized futon matress


Close up of the the print:


One last picture of uber cuteness, just because I know you want to see it!


Don't forget to vote!

ETA!  I forgot to mention the elastic for the headband and the booty shorts came from the sheet to!! I used as much as I could off that sheet!  Oh and the shoes were hand sewn.  The big ones wanted play outside and I needed something to keep my hands busy Smiley

Fantastic use of a sheet.
I can't believe all that came from a crib sheet.

Great job.

This post needs a warning label: Do not look directly at baby, sheer cute may lead to blurring of vision of blindness.

I love this- the look, the challenge, the print, the accessories!

 Grin  It was great trying to think up a bunch of things to make with the fabric, and use it all up.  I should have spun the scraps and knit her.... something....
