Old School Sheets

So, while perusing the streets of Ebay, I took a trip down memory lane. I began looking at vintage sheets (they make great/cheap fabric). I stumbled upon this beauty  and knew it had to be mine. I had the exact same sheets as a kid. I love it! I immediately bid on it (with only 15 minutes remaining) and won.  An impulse purchase, I know, but for less than $3 (with shipping)  it can’t be beat! I think I’ll make a quilt for the kids (or myself). I can’t wait for my treasure to arrive…(the pic is from Ebay).

care bear sheets Care Bear sheets (Love these!!!)

snoopy sheets Snoopy sheets

Rainbow brite set Rainbow Brite Sheets

ET sheets E.T. sheets (Wouldn’t this make a cute skirt?)

smurf sheets Smurf sheets

Bambi sheets Bambi sheets

Cabbage Patch Kids Sheets Cabbage Patch Kids sheets (very tempted on this one, too cute!)

Turtle sheets Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Not our picture but we currently have one of the sheets from this set. I think it once belonged to Aaron or else we got it at a garage sale.)

Aren’t they so cool?! Being a child of the 80’s/90’s, I loved seeing these old characters. If I had the money, I’d buy every set, turn them into quilts to share with my kids and someday grandkids. I would just love to have one of these, cuddled up with my child, and say “when I was a kid….” Does that make me old?
