I bought a set of sheets, 600 thread count, all Egyptian cotton, at a discount store. The cost was about the same as ordinary sheets at Target so I just wanted to have these luxurious sheets! They feel like sleeping on angel feathers. They give me nice dreams.
Then a little tear developed on the bottom fitted sheet. Instead of sewing it up first, I washed it. It came out of the dryer not as a little rip but as a 5 inch, frayed hole! There were not enough whole sides to sew together.I did not want to use regular iron-on patches on this delicate fabric so I tried fusable interfacing on both sides of the sheet, sandwiching the frayed part in the middle. That was ok, but when I washed the sheet, it all came off. According to the directions on the interfacing,it should have been washable.
Does anybody have any ideas how I can patch and save this? I really don't want to part with it.
