70's sheets...to duvet cover

I'm always picking up vintage sheets at the thrift stores.  I have so many of them that I don't know what to do with them.  I've had the same duvet cover for about 5 years (and still love it-bought it on ebay-made of vintage sheets)...I wanted something different.  I took two queen flat sheets from the 70's and made a duvet cover out of them.  It was my first attempt to make something like that.  It turned out so cute.  It's reversible so I can flip it over and have a new look when I want.  Plus I still have my other duvet that I love.  So many different looks for like $4.
