Folding a fitted sheet is so dang hard. Pinterest shows you how it’s done, though not without much trial and error! Still, it was a success to convert a huge crumpled ball into a flat square of a sheet.
Here’s the pin that helped me through it:

Doesn’t it look super easy? Oh yes, it LOOKS easy. Trying it out for real is another thing. I think it took me about a dozen tries before I got it right.
Compare Figure 4 in the above pin with my slightly crumpled sheet. It was crumpled to begin with, but got even more crumpled after so many attempts:
But LOOK! IT CAN BE DONE!
My Mom was so pleased she asked me to do another fitted sheet. Uh-oh. I tried following the same instructions but guess what? It took me another dozen or so tries before I got it right.
It was a pretty awesome exercise. Now I’m looking forward to practicing on more sheets. Got any fitted sheets I can practice on? I can’t guarantee I’ll return them to you wrinkle-free but at least they’ll be folded nice and square-ish.
