We humans need to sleep. Early on someone figured out that grass and straw were more comfortable than the ground. Thus the bed. Then around 3400 BC the Egyptian Pharaohs had their beds moved off the ground and slept on raised surfaces. This worked well for a while. Moving forward to the Roman Empire, mattresses were stuffed with wool, feather, reeds or hay for comfort. The bed frames were decorated with paint, bronze, silver, jewels and gold. During the Renaissance people started covering their mattresses with silks, velvets or satin material. Since then humanity has struggled to find the perfect way of folding these "bedsheets" in a neat and tidy way. The wait is over!
This Instructable will show you how to fold any Bedsheet set into a "Bedsheet Bundle".
Step 1: Folding 101
To fold your fitted sheet, see this Instructable; How To Fold A Fitted Sheet by lancmaltby.
Go and gather your sheet set(s) and get ready to fold like a pro!
2) Sheet (Fitted or Flat)
3) Duvet/Blanket Cover
Additional Pillowcases, Shams, Bed-skirt, etc.
*Pretty much anything that you consider to be a part of this "set"
A surface to fold on (a bed works really well)
NOTE: Some steps have multiple images/illustrations. Remember to view them all.
Step 2: Pillow Talk
For a flat sheet; just start here.
Spread the pillowcase nice and flat (image 1).
That was easy.
Now fold the pillow case in half, once over (image 2).
Still pretty simple.
Step 3: Between The Sheets
Ideally, there should be a bit of space on all four sides (image 6).
If you're having trouble, don't fret. This is the tricky part. Just keep practicing and before you know it you'll be a master at this.
