Help me to find a use for a well loved queen-size I am planning to make peanut butter cookies this morning. Like they do on the cooking shows on TV, I am virtually taking them out of the oven right now. Have some while they're still warm. (

(Please forgive the Dragon. Those cookies were for red Baron's coffee cart over in the room.)


Egyptian cotton, well loved and used past the best before date. Worn thin near the middle in the upper right quarter (I can see through it.) More than 3\4 still pretty good.
It seems a shame to throw it out but I would be ashamed to donate it to a rummage sale.
Help me find a use for it, but making a game. One suggestion at the time please. Let's see how far we can go without repeating ourselves.
I'll go first.

Use as a drop sheet on the kitchen floor while getting a home haircut.

As a makeshift screen to show old 8mm home movies, or Kodachrome slides on. Drape it over a bookcase, and voila.

Use it to cover old furniture or other items you are storing to keep dust off (I speak from experience here).

Cut in squares and hem; crochet round the edges and/or embroider the flower in the centre and make a pile of old-fashioned handkerchiefs.

Remember, you can post more than once, just not consecutively. We're aiming for 100.

Trim down to the thicker parts, get rid of the corners, hem. Now you've got a large rectangle of nice material, perfect for tie-dying, or batik-dying. Then you've got a large shawl, or a throw for the couch or a comfy chair.

Cut into rectangles. Use elastic to make rectangles in scrunchit’s. Dye interesting colours. Give away to young teens.

I bet you could get a pair of simple pillowcases from that. You can decorate the hem with sewn on lace or embroidery.
Cotton cleaning rags are the best. Maybe the thin areas can be cut up for those.

Cut the elastic off, leaving at least a 6 inch strip of fabric attached. Cut the whole thing into headband/ hairband sized pieces. Fold them or loosely roll them, then attach the ends. They could be painted, dyed, embellished with beads or sequins, buttons, etc. or embroidered.

Similar thing, the headbands as ear savers for wearing surgerical masks, requires a few buttons.

Cover the back seat of the car when the dog/cat is along for the ride.
