Inspiration for Your Nest: Vintage Sheets

I was so excited when Rachel of Smile & Wave announced she would be selling her collection of vintage sheets on her temp shop, The Stash. I quickly swooped up three of my most favorite and I'm excited to see them in the mail soon and add them to my small collection of vintage linens. -- I've been collecting inspiration and ideas for what to do with them, and I wanted to share a few of my favorite ideas for this week's Nesting Inspiration. :)

I am in love with how versatile and easy these sheets are. There are seriously about a million ways you can fashion them, from DIY clothing to colorful additions to your home:
