thrifty thursday: summery yellow stripes

Here's my super cool thrifty find for the week: 1 huge yellow and white striped duvet cover. I bought it on a 1/2 off day for $2.50 thinking i could use it to make more fort kits but now i just love it so much i don't really want to give to a any little kids to destroy. It's in great shape- doesn't have any spots or worn places so i'm thinking maybe pillow covers? blanket? quilt back? tons of little skirts for the girls? chair slip cover? or...i could use it as a duvet cover. :)  Do you have any ideas??  Anyway, there's some great stuff in the bedding isle of our local ARC! You should check it out.

They all sound like wonderful ideas, can't wait to see what you come up with. How is the house painting project coming along? I think that is going to be one of our 1st house projects...I know it is a big one so hopefully it won't be the last. love you!

Neat-o! I like the quilt back idea. Then you could use the other half for small fun stuff. So exciting. :)

I love The Arc in Loveland! Their fabric section almost always has some hidden treasures. I've found some great vintage sheets as well :).
