what can I make out of a twin sheet?

I found a thomas and friends twin sheet and would love to make my son something. He's 26 months old. The material is kinda rough so it wouldnt make a good comfy shirt, and since it's already so big I dont know if or how I'd make it into a blanket. Some ideas??? I was thinking about pants...I could use the sheet for the sides, but thats the only idea I could think of. Even if I did make some pants, what on earth would I do with the rest lol So I'd love some more creative ideas!!

  • You can try to make a pillow case if he uses a pillow.

  • Curtains, or a wall hanging thing with pockets for toys, a laundry bag, throw pillows, a dust ruffle for his crib/bed...etc...

  • Just fold it in half, stuff and sew it and it can be a really big pillow for him to relax on and watch movies.

  • Go to a thrift store and buy a cheap comforter, fold it in half a couple of times and it will be tick enough to be used as a big cushion.

  • you could make a large pillow. or you could cut out the characters that are the same sow them together and stuff them and he could have toys to play with. i did this for my daughter when she was five with care bear sheets and she loved it, i used a plan sheet for the back of the care bear because they were not the same on the sheet
