Fitted sheets to cover hay bales?
Has anyone seen fitted sheets used on haybales for seating at an outdoor farm location wedding?
We're getting married on my fiancé's farm in September. He is just about to start baling hay and doesn't have any for me to try it on yet.
I had been pricing flat sheets, muslin cloth, and burlap to use to cover the bales. Yesterday, I went to our local donation center to see if they had a few flat sheets I could purchase cheap. I hit the sheet motherload. They are redoing their flooring and were moving EVERYTHING to temp POD storage units in the parking lot. They had two boxes full of FITTED sheets donated from a hotel. She gave me all of them. About 50 fitted sheets. I told her I'd be glad to donate them back after the wedding.
(I had calculated that I would need about 38 full size flat sheets for the number of bales I'm using).
Will the fitted work just as easily as the flat? I figure I could tie them with jute or twine on each end of every "pew". (I'm sitting them directly next to one another, rather than having spacing between).
