How Jeanie Folds a Fitted Sheet

Oh no! Another fitted sheet to fold!

Take one corner...

Fold it into the adjacent corner...

Do the same with the other two corners...

Then fold all corners into one...

Fold in half (if double or large single)...

Then fold it all up as if it were a flat!

(Inspired by this post by Mad Goat Lady).

Jeanie! You make it look so easy...I am shocked!

I will give it a go tomorrow and come back and let you know how I go LOL.

You might have to start a special site about this just for clueless people like me.

That's so Martha Stewart! I know I'll never do it. I'm sure I'll stick with my haphazard folding method. Thanks for the demo though.

Rofpmsl! Why oh why does my fitted sheet fold always end up looking more like your first picture???!!! ;)

Elizabeth said...

If hubby isn't around to help (makes it so much easier) my method mirrors yours. Aren't we clever. * laugh *

You can fold sheets at my house any day LOL! I'll give it a try, but I'm doubtful I'm coordinated enough to manage it. I wad it up and call it "good."

Mama Zen said...

OK, I'm gonna have to try this!

Tracey said...

Problem with me is that, just looking, I go "huh?" at Pics 2 and 3. (Pic 1 is ok.. that's so me!) I have some single fitted sheets drying on the line as we speak, so I probably should put your blogpost up, and try and follow it, step by step.

Sheesh, if you get me doing that, what's next? Cleaning out the linen press?

Melody said...

Ha ha...I saw this a few weeks back in a magazine or Target catelogue or something. It looks easy. But I still just stuff them into the linen press.

I am with Brissiemum, my fitted sheet folding has been abandoned and they look like picture A.

Sophiagurl said...

wow! that's fantastic! I could never let it come out like that. =) btw, thanks for the visit and the comment.

I learnt how to do it this way a couple of years back and showed a friend of mine. She now shows everyone.

Of course, even though I know how to do it, it doesn't mean that I do!

Cathy said...

I'm amazed that it can be done!

(I've always just rolled mine up so that they look like something that should be stuffed into a backpack.)

I must try this...

Jennifer said...

I just wash mine and put them back on the bed. No folding ever. LOL...

The bad thing is that if I do something crazy like forget to dry them. I am sleeping on two flats.

jeanie said...

Wow - my most popular post EVER lol...

Makes me think I should set up shop as a (ahem) obscure housework activities expert!!!

Nikki - Mommy2JL said...

I agree! You make this look so much easier than I ever thought it was lol
annnnnd tomorrow, when I'm doing the wee one's laundry and folding his sheets, I guarantee I will have forgotten everything I have just learned.
But that just gives me another reason to come back and read some more of your blog!

Matt said...

It cant seriously be that easy, surely you've missed posting a photo or something..

I cant let my wifey see this otherwise I'll be the one folding sheets from now on!

jeanie said...

Matt - you have to surreptitiously get your wife to see the post and SHOW YOU how its done. Then you have to admit you could never do it as well as she.

BeyondBeeton said...

Hi Jeanie, good post and pics too :) I also fold my fitted sheet this way.

My own personal secret and addition to this is to fold the fitted and flat sheet plus one pillow case inside the other case (you'll then be able to fold the outside pillow case).

This keeps things very neat in the cupboard, particularly when the sheets are stored on a high shelf.
