Make Something Monday: Modifying Sheets

I recently found a FABULOUS pair of sheet for only $40 at Bergner's Community Days sale. Normally we don't use a top sheet, but these feel so luxurious so we have been. I sleep hot and DH sleeps cold, so we tend to use different blankets, hence no sheet. So with the different blankets on top this sheet just doesn't seem to be wide enough for the bed. I turned it sideways and it's too short to cover shoulders. So I decided to modify the sheets. I cut a wide strip from our previous top sheet (which we never used) and sewed it along the bottom (which was actually the side until we turned it!) and now there is plenty to tuck in along the bottom AND cover our shoulders.

We have a Tempur-Pedic bed & pillows which we love. Regular pillow cases are too big, so I modified the cases. I just turned each inside out. Marked a new edge to fit the pillow and then stitched away. I actually have a serger so the modifications went quick!What's with the sunglasses?
