I want queen cotton sheets with fun patterns to go under my boring grownup comforter. White or pale backgrounds, small repetitive prints. Where can I find them? I've been able to find isolated instances, but I want options! I currently have animal options in mind (e.g little elephants, whales, owls), or perhaps nice multi-color stripes. I might sacrifice my favorite niece or nephew for amazing octopuses or seahorses. Not kidding, I really am jealous of the babies and their magic crib sheets. Some examples of what I've already found are after the cut.
These skipjack sheets
at BB&B are a good example of the type of thing I'd like to find. Cute, but not actually baby-ish. The Company Store usually has a few decent options
, but I don't totally love the current ones. Mostly, the prints are a bit big -- I might prefer prints that could be mistaken for polka dots from afar, but that's not a dealbreaker. Pottery Barn Teen has some that are okay, but I'm not in love.
I would love something in this sort of print
(not microfleece, of course, but I can't seem to find a cotton version at the moment).
If the correct answer is to buy fabric and have sheets made by a sewing-competent friend or someone on Etsy or similar, since there are approximately a gazillion fun fabric prints, what do I need to know about picking the fabrics?
Am I the only one, or should I be starting up my new business, www.whimsicalsheetsforall.com?
