Do you know to fold a fitted sheet - do you really know how? It is a mystery to me on why we can never fold the fitted sheet back into the nice little rectangle that once was for easy storage. You can ask my husband - he has no idea on how to fold it either. He just makes a nice rolled up balled up mess that he calls folded and then puts it away in our linen closet. I can go over to friends homes and sneak a peek at their linen closet and once again not a folded fitted sheet in sight. Just a big old mess. My dear sweet grandma should me long ago - how to fold a fitted sheet. Here is my lesson to you - and yes I am going to teach my husband once again on how to fold the fitted sheet and this time I hope he remembers.
Enjoy and happy folding correctly,
Getting the fitted sheet ready for folding
Here we have my husband eagerly awaiting my folding instructions. Get your fitted sheet ready!
Finding the corners/points
With you pointer finger - put them each into to ends of the fitted sheet. I always start with the top or bottom points of the sheet- the shorter distance. Here my husband has his two fingers at each end inside the sheet. Find your points!
Bring the two point together
In this step bring your two fingers together.
Bring over one side - ride side over to meet the other point.
Almost like a mirror image crossing over to the other side. Follow the pictures carefully!
Bringing up the other 2 points
You are going to repeat the same steps 2 and 3 for the following points until you have all points overtop of each other on your other hand.
All points together
This is what you should look like after you get all point together.
Different angles of the folded sheet
Here are different angles of what you should have after you get all points together. My husband is so excited - we are almost finished
That's my little pug dog Bailey Floyd - he couldn't help not getting in the picture.
Finishing the folding
This next step is best when you place the sheet on a flat surface.
With the sheet on the flat surface bring over one side half way over -
then bring over again so you get a nice neat rectangle.
You are all done!
Now you have a nice neat folded fitted sheet. Please go put it away and refold all the other ones that you may have setting in you linen closet that are a mess.
If my husband can fold it you can too!
Thanks and enjoy folding!
