The Dreaded Fitted Sheet

One of laundry's most unpleasant tasks is the folding of a fitted sheet. We would all like to think that we can somehow manage the odd-shaped beast, but many around the world surrender daily to the sheet and end up rolling it into a wad and putting it away. If you are like most, you believe that the fitted sheet cannot be folded. That it cannot be mastered. That it was created to live in our homes in some bizarre, semi-rounded, puckered shape. I am here to tell you - no SHOW you - that it can be done!

I do not recall when I first began folding fitted sheets in this manner; but, I have trained several people now to do it. Like me, these friends now consider the sheet to be tamed! It serves the master, the mentor, the guru as it should. Follow the steps below to master the art of folding the fitted sheet.


Source

Step 1: Remove fitted sheet from the dryer.

OK. These are "gimme" points. Anyone should be able to get the sheet out of the dryer. But, congratulations, you are one step closer!

Source

Step 2: Place both hands in any two corners of the fitted sheet.

This is your starting point. Everything else will flow from here.

Insert your hands with index fingers of each hand at the end of the sewn darts at two corners of the fitted sheet.

Source

Step 3: Fold the sheet in half from top to bottom.

Place hands in the 2 corner darts of the fitted sheet.

Make sure that corner seams are matched on top and bottom half of sheet.

The index finger of each hand should be firmly pointing at the innermost corner of each seam.

With wrong sides of fabric together (right side of fabric on outside of fold), fold sheet in half from top end to bottom end.

Match ends of sheet and corners.

Source

Step 4: Bring index fingers and inner corner seams together.

Align the darts over your hands and bring your index fingers together.

Source

Step 5: With the hand in the lowest position firmly grasp the other index finger and the fabric

This is one of the most important steps the folding process.

Source

Step 6: Fold one corner over the other.

Carefully fold the top corner of the sheet over the corner on your lower hand.

Source

Step 7: Smooth and pull the fabric of the corners on your hand to make sure it is smooth and darts are in line with each other.

Align the darts on the corner of the sheet with each other to make a smooth corner.

Source

Step 8: Begin to form the sheet into a rectangle.

Keeping your hand in touch with the elastic corner of the sheet, use your arm to support the sheet and form the top side of the rectangle.

With your other hand, push up under the layers of the sheet, and drag your hand from the corner to the outer end. This makes the other side of the rectangle.

There should be anywhere from 7-9 inches of elasticized fabric that are folding over to make the rectangle.

Source

Step 9: Lay the rectangular sheet on a flat surface.

Smooth the sheet and even out the ends while the sheet lays flat.

Source

Step 10: Fold the sheet lengthwise in 2 or 3 folds..

Make sure the elasticized sides are folded in first.

Use 2 folds for twin sheets, and 3 for larger size sheets.

Smooth the sheet with each fold.

Source

Step 11: Fold the long rectangle in half.

Depending on the size of the sheet, you may need to repeat this step once or twice to get the sheet to a manageable size.

Source

Step 12: Fold the small rectangle in half and smooth.

You are almost done!

You are a Master of the Fitted Sheet!

Congratulations! You folded a fitted sheet!

      This hub could have been written for me - I've just started managing a holiday let villa and am drowning in pillow cases, duvet covers and fitted sheets, which I've never managed to fold nicely. I have two in the wash as I write, so once they're dry (on the line, it's a gorgeous day!) I'm going to follow your instructions carefully. Thank you so much - I never thought I could get excited about folding sheets before!!

      Oh, if only it were that easy! I actually did have my mom teach me how. No matter how big the sheet, my mom can fold it perfectly. I can't manage by myself -- it usually ends up in a roll. I'll try your way, though. Thanks for sharing!

      I did it, I did it!! I just tried it with two single fitted sheets - got a little confused at first, had a couple of false starts, but persevered and finally achieved the impossible - beautifully folded, neat, fitted sheets! I am now going to have to correct all my other, poorly folded sheets, and will share this secret with all my friends. You've quite made my day, thank you!!

      I had, on my own, come up with the idea of getting those corners folded into the middle while trying to make a rectangle with the rest, but these instructions are much better. Now I will have flatter sheets when I'm done folding them. Thanks!

      First, I want to say I respect the KU Jayhawk and I was thinking this is your daughter or twin sister in the photo. I love your first step. I always think I know how to fold a fitted sheet, but really have pretended all these years. I think a lot of us probably hurry and fold up the crowded material so we just don't see it and it looks like a neat little kind of sort of square! Love your step by steps with great images. Thank you.

      This is very useful, because in all honesty, I don't know how to fold sheets correctly. They usually end up in a wrinkled wad in the closet because I get frustrated. But with the pictures and step by step instructions I will be trying this when I wash my sheets next. Is it sad that I'm excited to fold sheets?

      I am very good at the roll and ball technique, and like lilmiss said, my fitted sheets usually end up wrinkled. I will have to try this, but I'm kind of not understanding step 6. Hopefully, when I'm in the process I will get it. Just a thought - for me, a video would greatly help me understand this better, but I do love the pictures.

      This is a terrific hub, and (in my opinion) should have been selected as "Hub of the Day." Who hasn't struggled with fitted sheets (especially the larger sizes) trying to get them folded in some semblance of order with no lumps, bumps or edges hanging out? You deserve an A+ for this one! Your descriptions are written so clearly anyone should be able to follow them, but the photos showing each step make it even easier. Bravo!

      Thank you. Thank You. Thank you. I can't wait for the day my daughter looks in the linen closet and finds that all of my king size and her queen size fitted sheets are folded nice and neatly. Though I have always ironed them out flat, they looked a mess! The video is priceless.

      Wow great! I never even realised that this was possible! I have always folded my fitted sheets vertically, with one corner higher than the other, and then just folded them down but your way looks so much neater. Will try this next sheet folding day but I bet I will be back to the video again to check out some details! Great hub - very useful. Thanks very much.

      Well, I had a fitted sheet that was dry and needed folded. I had watched the video and thought - "that looks simple"! Of course, when I tried it, I had forgotten just what to do. I knew I needed two fingers, one in each dart and bring them together - after that I was stuck, so brought the sheet down to the computer and stood in front of the video and practised and did it!

      You have done what seems impossible, in making a clear, easy-to-follow folding system that actually works, and with just one person, too! The video was VERY well done! You are going down in history as a laundry guru or saint!

      Wow! So many people learning the simple art of folding a fitted sheet. Awesome!

      I have always just fold it in half a few times and then tuck in the corners. Okay, it looks a little horrible, I know. But now that I know the trick, maybe I will have a nicely folded fitted sheet for a change.

      I have always been so bad at folding the fitted sheet that I take the sheets off of the bed wash them and put them back on instead of having to fold them! I can't wait to try this and actually use all those sheet sets in my closet. Great step by step directions.

      Always wanted to be able to do this! I'm far from a neat-freak but I hate it when I can't fit my fitted sheets in my closet. Thanks for sharing, and explaining it so thoroughly!

      Wow... this is one of those things I never even thought there was a "right" way to do. I usually just sorta flap the fitted sheet around until it vaguely resembles a rectangle and then I toss it into the linen cabinet!

      Thanks so much for opening my eyes, I will have to try this next time I do laundry!

      A neatly folded fitted sheet should fit into the sheet drawer better than the wadded up sheet balls I have stuffed in there now. I will definitely have to try this technique!

      Thanks for the positive feedback! I reorganized my laundry room this week and found some wrinkled up fitted sheets there. Now they are washed and folded properly. Order to chaos..........

      What a perfect read for me . . . I have always bought and used flat sheets, just force of habit. A few months ago I treated myself to some new bedding and accidently bought fitted sheets. They have been driving me mad when it comes to putting them away. In fact, they have ended up rolled into a sausage shape. After watching the video I got a sheet out of the cupboard - followed your instructions and VOILA ! A perfectly folded sheet. THank you so much.

      The flow of the writing was clear, the layout was easy to follow, and the pictures were just what I needed. I ran into my closet, grabbed the closest untidy bundle, and went through it line by line and picture by picture . It looks fabulous. I can't wait till my hubby comes home so I can ask him, "would you believe that's a FITTED sheet!?!" Will share with all my friends!!!

      Sigh! Okay I am going to try again. Surely, it is time I mastered the dreaded fitted sheet. By the time I put it away it looks like a pile of 4 sheets. But ok - here I go again. Thanks a million!

      It's the elastic that makes it a pain. I have just gotten a set of drawstring sheets and with the drawstring loose, it doesn't gather up so much and it will lay much flatter so the folding is more straight forward. And man do they ever stay on the bed, beating the heck out of elastic sheets. Every night I get into bed it's wonderful how nice and smooth the sheet is like the sheet was just put on.
