How to fold a fitted sheet!
June 16, 2014 - Christie Tymms
There’s no shortage of tutorials on how to fold fitted sheets, here on the web, but just in case you never thought about it (and you’re OCD like me),
I decided to post my own special tutorial for the ‘The good wives club’ readers.
I think the first thing to do is establish the different areas of the sheet. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking… it has 4 corners and some elastic…
Yes you are right! But it also has width and length as well as an ‘inside out’ etc. Depending on how ‘attention to detail’ you are, in the end some of that will matter and some won’t, but it still helps to be aware.
Okay, let’s get started.
1. Hold your fitted sheet up starting lengthwise, the first thing you need to do is put a hand into one corner each using your index finger to make a point at the end of the stitching.
(In this step the ‘inside out’ matter is not importance)
2. Bring the corners you’re holding together with your fingers and fold one side over the other so that one is inside the other. It works best to insert the right side into the left side free for the next step. Now you are holding both of those corners with your left hand and again pointing the finger to extend the seams out to a point.
3. Now with your right hand, slide down to the next corner. Take this corner and insert it underneath the 2 corners on your left hand and push it in nice and tidy extending to a point again.
4. Repeat the previous step on the final corner. Now all corners will be one.
5. On a flat surface (like a made bed), straighten the edges and fold to two edges leading to the corners in slightly to make an even square or rectangle (depending on sheet size).
6. Fold in half or thirds and then repeat on the other side to complete.
