Decorative Sheet Set DIY

Wow, the cool autumn air has inspired (or refreshed) me to do some new decorating!  My newest project is one of our guest rooms.  I decided to go with pink and gray and a pop of navy ~ really into those colors now.
I wanted to keep the sheets white to go with the white furniture, but they seems so plain.  A decorative stitch was the way to spruce them up.

First, I measured the cuff on the pillowcases, and drew a line with a water soluble pen at the half way point.  For me it was 2 1/2 inches.

Using the line as my guide, I picked a decorative stitch from my sewing machine.  I did experiment with several until I found the one I liked.  Then I stitched.

I repeated the process with the top sheet, and voilà ~ I have a pretty new set of sheets! ♥
