I frequently use old cotton bed sheets to make dresses, skirts and other things. I love that I can find amazing vintage fabrics really cheap in the form of sheets, and usually the cotton is also very soft and flowy from years of use. For example the green birthday dress I made in august (blogged here: http://sewewellyn.blogspot.com/2011/08/and-then-suddenly-dress.html ) is made of two vintage bed sheets I found at my mum and dads house while visiting. Layering or interfacing can be a good idea when working with really old or well used sheets, since they tend to stretch and slip around a lot when sewing, and might need some extra stability.

Have you sewn with upcycled/reclaimed fabric from the home? Anything special tips? Any secrets?
