Anyone have an idea of the rough avg amt of yards in a twin sheet (full/queen/king/etc)? Was just wondering if it would be cheaper to get bargain bin materials from Joann's etc or to shop the consignment shops/garage sales for flannel sheets to recycle. There's just something great about the feel of broken in flannel.

Some of my favorite fabric finds are vintage tablecloths, napkins, and sheets.

I just sewed up a batch of family cloth this past week and was able to get thirty-nine 7" x 8" cloths (double sided) from one full size flannel sheet. I *love* the broken in flannel as well!
