Folded fitted sheetI love fitted sheets because they save time. But unlike flat sheets, they’re a pain to fold neatly. Fortunately, Target Australia takes the pain away by showing you how to fold the impossible-to-fold fitted sheet. The end result is tidy and space-saving.

How to fold a fitted sheet perfectly [Target Australia]

Update: Martha Stewart has some more pictures of the same technique here.

    I have been looking for directions on how to fold a fitted sheet. I have found many sets of directions for folding fitted sheets with two sides having elastic. My sheets have elastic all around, and I have been unable to find directions for folding them. Help! Suzanne Tiemstra, , Grand Rapids, Michigan

    Why is it that no one and I mean no one can show an edited sequence of how to fold a fitted sheet without getting their horrible face into the shot – all I want to see is a sequence which shows clearly from various angles with a repeat replay to clarify how each stage should be completed – the whole sequence shown on a flat surface without fabric flapping all over the place – frustrated! Every sequence I have seen is so AMATEUR! Omit the voice over – complete waste of time – believe me it is of no use particularly if you are hearing impaired…..

    I still haven’t seen anyone folding a sheet with elastic all around the entire sheet.
