Folding a fitted sheet

So as it turns out this is not an activity that is easily portrayed by photos taken by a crappy LG flip phone camera. Bear with me folks! I'll try to explain WTF is going on in each photo.

Start by taking laying your sheet with the short end on top. I'm 6' tall and so is my arm span so it's easy for me: whichever end of the sheet ends right at my outstretched hands is it. Here we go:

Please ignore the cat. He's neutered so at least there's no junk to stare at. Needless to say, he's not what you'd call bashful. Or energetic. Or slim. Anyways, I digress. Next, take the other short end of the fitted sheet (the one that is on the floor in the above picture) and put it on top AND inside the top part. Like so:

What you will get is this result:

And yes, I had to flip the photo in order to maintain continuity of perspective. Does that phrase even make sense? Maintain continuity of perspective? IDK. So, now take the right side and fold it over to the left side, tucking it inside. Your result is as follows:

Does that cat ever move? Geez. So now, we fold the outside ends inside, like so:

And so:

Like the doors of a saloon, right? Ha ha. Now, shove the cat over and fold together one more time:

Now the rest is pretty self explanatory through the photos:

Presto! And what's rad about it as you can see is that the fitted sheet is essentially the same size as a folded pillow cases and top sheet. What you have is a nice, uniformly-sized stack that is easy to store.

  1. Ohh, so nice! I have never been able to fold a fitted sheet, so I just stuff it in the closet.
