10 Sustainable & Creative Ways — The Honest Consumer

These can be used for everything from dusting furniture to cleaning windows. Best of all, they’re free! Just cut the sheets into squares or strips, and you’re ready.

If you’re feeling creative, you can add some embellishments like fringes or appliques. Whatever you do, don’t throw those old sheets away – put them to good use and upcycle them into something new!

I used a scrap from an old pillowcase to make a cleaning rag and added a personal touch with an applique. Makes cleaning a bit more fun!

Make A Pet Bed Out Of Them

Anyone who has ever owned a pet knows that it can be surprisingly expensive. From food and toys to vet bills and grooming, the costs of pet ownership can add up quickly.

One way to save money on your pet is to make your pet bed. A simple pet bed can be made by repurposing an old sheet or blanket.

  • First, measure your pet and cut a piece of fabric slightly larger than your pet.

  • Next, fold over the edges of the fabric and sew them together, leaving one end open.

  • Finally, stuff the fabric with old clothes or pillows and sew the opening shut.

This upcycled pet bed will provide your furry friend with a comfortable place to sleep that’s the perfect size without breaking the bank.

Plus, you can use any extra fabric scraps to make a dog toy that your pet will love to play tug of war with, without any added cost for you!

Sew Your Own Clothes

This is a great option for any fashionista or person who loves to sew! Sheets are just a giant piece of fabric! You can easily turn these into pajama pants, a flowy dress, and more.

Simply search for clothing patterns online or head to your local craft store. These patterns will give you detailed instructions on how to turn your fabric into something you can actually wear!

Plus, the best part is you can say you made it yourself and that it is up-cycled! Yay for sustainable fashion!
