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,

Step 1: Getting the Fitted Sheet Ready for Folding
Here we have my husband eagerly awaiting my folding instructions. Get your fitted sheet ready!
Step 2: 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!
Step 3: 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!
Step 4: 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.
Step 5: All Points Together
This is what you should look like after you get all point together.
Step 6: 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.
Step 7: 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.
Step 8: 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!
