Many people have difficulty folding fitted sheets because they just don’t know how to begin.
I have been folding fitted sheets since I was quite young and if you know how to do it, you are halfway there!
With a little practice, you’ll be folding your fitted sheets like a pro!
The true first step to nicely folded fitted sheets is enough space to work! It’s a good idea to fold your sheets on a bed or atleast, a sofa.
Also, keep that in mind that, the softer the sheets, the nicer they are to sleep on but the more difficult they are to fold!
Begin with a clear space to work and your fitted sheet. I like to fold my sheets right-side-out, so…
Step 1) Make sure your fitted sheet is arranged with the tags to the inside and with your sheet laying long-ways, bring your corner seams together.
1b) Now put all 4 corner seams together, lining up the stitch lines and squaring off the sheet as neatly as you can
Step 2) Fold up the bottom 1/3 of your sheet
Step 3) Fold that half up
3a) and flip over so folds are facing up
Step 4) Fold into 3rds with the bulkiest side in (In other words, the 4 corners side goes to the inside of your 3rds)
And there, you have it! A neatly folded fitted sheet!
The only thing that could make it look prettier, is ironing it but I don’t have time for that!… Although, yes, I was taught to iron the sheets and pillow cases! Wrinkles were not an option when i was growing up!! Lol
Now, I’ll fold the flat sheet to the same size.
