    Has anyone made twin bed sheets with sports materials? My grandson is a Dallas Cowboy fan and I have material - but never did a "sheet". any suggestions? Thanks.

    Why not?
    I have a friend who made crib sheets for her soon-to-be DGS!

    Sometimes its actually cheaper to buy the sheets, than purchase the yardage required.
    You could purchase a set and just add the decorative boarder to the top sheet, and do the same to the pillow cases.

    Do you mean like a summer quilt? Top and backing, but no batting?

    I made plenty of pack-n-play and crib/toddler bed size sheets, because they were actually cheaper than buying, depending on your fabric choice. You don't need wide fabric - even the crib size can be made with 45-inch wide fabric. However, I've never made sheets for twin beds, because I'd either have to find wide fabric (maybe more $$) or piece extra width on - either way, it'd be more $$ and no longer worth it to me. But if it's a special fabric that your GS would really love, then it shouldn't be difficult.

    i buy 108"-120" wide batiks and make sheets often- just hem the edges after deciding and cutting the size. all there is to it. i also make pillow cases for all of my quilts
