How to Fold a Fitted Sheet

II don't know how to fold fitted sheets.  I've tried and tried and they always look like I rolled them up in a ball and stuck them in my linen closet.  It's embarrassing. I swear the sheets that people are folding in the videos are toy sheets, I could fold them.  My sheets are King-sized and they're a monster to fold.
 I found this Martha Stewart video on Youtube and she is the head domestic goddess around here, so the next time I fold my sheets I'm going to try this method.  If that doesn't work I'm going to follow the tip Martha gives at the end of the video.


  1. I couldn't hear it, but got the gist of it. Me......I just fold the best way I can and roll it up tucking in the bits that stick out!

  2. I learnt how to fold fitted sheets from a Martha Stewart book I bought in the US years ago, her method works for me. Once you've got the hang of it it's really easy. I taught my daughter-in-law how to do it as well. Hope you manage to work it out:)

  3. This could be useful, since I invariably end up inside the sheet. Left to my own devices, I'd leave 'em on the bed and iron them in situ...but Mrs Britain gets distraught about things like that. Thanks for the visit to my blog!

  4. I've seen this video before and it made me laugh then. My bug bear is putting a duvet cover on a duvet. I can do it but it wears me out plus putting sheets on the bed is impossible as the puss cat insists on helping.

  5. Folding fitted sheets is definitely not easy = I iron them too (not everyone does I know) and I can never work out the easiest way to iron them. This video made me laugh. I shall probably never think of the fitted sheet problem again in quite the same light.

  6. I don't find them difficult, but I think that I watched something Martha years ago and learnt how to do it! xx

  8. mine never look like Msrtha's but I get the job done and I'm the only one who ever looks in my linen closet, so who cares!

  9. I sorta fold mine and they look just fine on the shelve.
    No one but me usually see them. J
    ust as long as they are neat(ish) who cares.

A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
