Folding fitted sheets…

I was over on Ensellitis’ blog today catching up on what he’s said during the past few weeks. He posted a collection “Stupid Links” a week or so ago, and I hate to say it but one of the links wasn’t so stupid 🙂

The link pointed to a single page set of instructions explaining how to fold a fitted sheet. If you ever looked in our linen closet, you’d find that neither my wife nor I have never mastered this. We hate folding fitted sheets. Our attempts look more like we sort of wadded the sheet up and flattened it by jumping on it a few times. We try- really we do. But it never quite works out.

Now we have instructions…I somehow doubt it will help. The part about having a “table” to fold on is a fantasy in our house: all flat surfaces are covered by cats or cat hair, so our folding takes place in mid air. But the approach is intriguing, and with the existence of instructions comes both hope and the realization that, since someone made the instructions, then perhaps we aren’t the only folding-challenged people on the planet.

  1. Hi all, I’ve been surfing the web this morning and find it interesting to see so many places that discuss the folding of fitted sheets… Well, guess what? My sister and I designed a way to fold fitted sheets (doesn’t look anything like Martha’s or Target’s)and store them in a neat package which includes the flat sheet and pillowcases. I’m sending this comment because I was invited to. I’ve put my website up for you to take a look at it. I do hope I have not overstepped any boundaries here. If so, I apologize. I’m excited to share this with you. Thanks.

  2. Greetings, Elva!

    I don’t mind your comment- it’s on topic, and potentially helpful / interesting to some folks. I moderate here because, frankly, most of the comments I get come from spam bots that post meaningly junk full of links to online drug stores and pornography.

    On topic / interesting posts are always welcome here 🙂 Thanks for dropping by!
