In one of my easiest sewing projects ever, I upcycle a $12 round tablecloth from Target into a circle skirt with an elastic waistband.
To my surprise, this took me less than 1.5 hours to sew & film this project and there was zero ironing!

Hitting up home stores for textiles like sheets and tablecloths is something I do pretty often, as there are great deals on these items I can use for anything from quilt backings to clothing. I tend to prefer woven, natural fabrics like cotton or linen and avoid materials like polyester / acrylic / microfiber.
