How to Fold a Fitted Sheet
What you need:
- Fitted sheet
- Flat surface
TIP – This method is easiest when you have a flat surface like a table, a bed, or a floor to work on.
STEP 1 – LAY THE SHEET ON YOUR FLAT SURFACE
Lay your Logan & Mason or Private Collection fitted sheet onto the flat surface with the elastic facing up. Please note that I am using a Queen sized sheet.
There are 4 seams, one in each corner, and these are what will help you to fold the sheet more easily so make sure you can clearly see each one before you move on!
STEP 2 – PUT BOTTOM CORNERS INTO TOP CORNERS
Bring hands together, tucking one corner into the other. (It will turn inside out as you do) Repeat this process with the corners at the opposite end, and then lay the sheet down flat. Neaten the corners and edges to make a nice rectangle.
STEP 3 – FOLD INTO A LONG RECTANGLE
The sheet should be a rectangle shape. Fold your fitted sheet in half from left to right, making sure you hide the elastic.
Depending on the size of your sheet, you may just be able to do a couple of folds from the bottom to the top. Fold your fitted sheet again this time into thirds forming a long rectangle.
TIP – remember to pat everything down at each fold as then you will get a much crisper finished product
STEP 4 – FOLD THE RECTANGLE INWARDS TO CREATE THE FINAL RESULT
The very last stage is to fold the sheet into thirds to create a square.
All the time you are creating more squared off edges, and flattening it as you go – so you should end up with something like this:-
The perfect way to fold your sheet! – or at least this is the perfect way for me – it’s not too much of a hassle, and gives a nice crisp finish. Pop a bottle of bubbles and celebrate becoming a master of folding a fitted sheet.
