Craft Challenge #52 - Bed Sheet Getup - Due Jul 1 - Jul 7

07/22/10 - Winner Announced!

Congrats to CoanTeen for her ridiculously awesome Anna Feng Steampunk Avatrix out of bedsheets!
See her full project thread here:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=352958.0

Check out the blog about this month's challenge!

07/08/10 - Vote now!  Scroll up to see the voting poll!

07/01/10 - The entry board is open!  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=446.0

  • One entry per person.
  • Start a new thread for your entry and give the subject of the thread a unique title, so voters can remember what it is at a glance when they vote.
  • Post pictures of "making of" the project, if you've got them! Smiley
  • If your project was inspired by something else you've seen someone create, please give credit.

We can't wait to see what you've all created!

Have you ever wondered what to do with all of those random, mismatched bed sheets that have somehow collected on the shelf in your linen closet?  From the 1980s Rainbow Brite sheets to the crazy floral explosion bed set that your Great Aunt Tootie gifted you last year, we're now challenging you to repurpose them.  Your challenge this month is to use one or more bed sheets to create a piece of clothing!

The minimum requirement is to use one bed sheet to create one piece of clothing, but you can definitely use additional bed sheets and even create a full outfit (wedding dress, anyone? Cheesy), if you so desire!  You can use any size, type, pattern or color of bed sheet.  You can use other craft supplies and components in your project, but the main focus of the project should be the bed sheet(s).  The finished project does not have to be for you personally, but it should be modelled by a person in your entry photos.


  • Post your craft during the period of Jul 1 - Jul 7 2010. No sooner.  No later.  On Jul 1 there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Jul 8 - Jul 15 2010.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).


It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project.


At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog

And this prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):

Any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

I've been meaning to make something out of some sheets- this is the perfect motivation!

I told myself that I wasn't going to do a challange for the next month, but this is intriging. I've never made clothes before, sounds like a great chance to attempt something.

I wish the entry wasn't limited to clothing.  I have some bedsheets I am planning on making into a large piece of artwork to hang on my wall and when I first saw this on Facebook I was THRILLED I could make it then enter it into a challenge.  But then I was totally disappointed when I read the entries are limited to clothing.  grrrr.....

I would love to swap ATC size "pillows" with my fellow teesha moore peeps.
