Trash to Treasure: Old Linens

Sasha Andreev shows host Joan Steffend some great ways to use vintage linens.

Simple, straight-line sewing is used to transform old tablecloths into a unique duvet cover. Inexpensive muslin is used for the underside of the duvet, and ribbon is sewn on for the ties.

Laundry Bag

To make this stylish laundry bag, an old tablecloth is sewn in the shape of a pillowcase. A channel is left open at the top to hold the cord.

Wall Art

Using no-sew methods; vintage dishtowels are made into wall art. Two dishtowels are wrapped around an artist canvas like a present and then stapled on from the back. A piece of ribbon covers the seam between the two. For a collage effect, a leftover piece of the dishtowel is matted and framed.
