There is an art to sheet folding and storage. Once you learn how to fold sheets properly, learning how to store them is the next step.
Need to learn how to fold sheets properly? I explain how to fold a crib sheet and FishMama recently posted a vlog on how to fold a crib sheet. Use either of these tutorials to learn the art of folding the fitted sheet.
After your sheets are folded properly, it is important to store them compactly on the shelf. When storing sets of items together, I love to be able to pull them out of the drawer or off of the shelf in one nice, neat package. Such as when I’m storing children’s pajama sets.
Fold all of your items separately – flat sheet, fitted sheet and then pillowcases and pillow protectors (if you use those).
Lay your fitted sheet down as if you’re preparing to complete the last fold. Depending on the flat sheet size, I fold in half or in thirds.
Inside of it, place your fitted sheet on the very end.
And then place your pillowcases on top of the fitted sheet.
Fold the folded flat sheet over to its edges meet.
And now you have one beautiful package of sheets that fits very compactly on the shelf. And if you have multiple sheet sets, they stack really well on top of one another until you’re ready for their next use.
No more scrambling around looking for sheets and pillowcases that match! This method definitely works for me.
