Can you fold a fitted sheet?

Despite my best efforts, I never knew the trick to folding a fitted sheet. It always was rough looking.Thanks to Youtube, I just learned how! OMG! It's so simple and looks a million times better! Am I the only one who learned so late in life? And, is there nothing youtube can't teach you! Love that place! Smile

I'm OCD about folding fitted sheets (surprise). It's very satisfying, isn't it?

Off to find the video as well. I usually make the ends pointy and start that way but its a PITA and end up rolling the whole thing up and throwing it in the closet. LOL

No! LOL! My mom showed me how, she folds them perfect, but I never care enough to remember how to do it properly.

I can, but I don't care to. As long as it's somewhat reasonable, I'm okay with it.

Ok so I watched a video - looks easy when its a twin sheet - but she needs to show me a king! LOL. I do the tuck into the corners thing too but then end up rolling it up after I can't reach all the ends.

A youtube video! Lol Usually looks decent when I'm done. Not sure if it's perfect guess I'll have to find the video and see what the end result should look like.

Ha! It's even easier with a crib sheet. Wink

Julie- I learned to knit from Youtube too.

My Mom showed me, and I'm OCD about the guest room sheets...probably b/c she can see them in the dresser...but for my sheets, whatever. I fold them up so they are neat looking and that's good enough for me. I will teach Alicia the proper way, so she has the option of folding them properly Smile

I'm learning a new sewing machine and my mom told me to check out youtube for tips! I also used youtube to learn how to use my Ergo in different ways when T was born! Love it!

And, no, I don't know how to fold a fitted sheet. I end up rolling the crib sheets and keeping them neatly tucked into a bin inside the cabinet outside the boys' room. I'll have to check out youtube to learn how to do it the right way!

Amber, were you the one who posted about this on FB recently? I remember either commenting or thinking that there has to be a youtube video on it. If that wasn't you then it's very strange that it came up here...
