Fitting the Corners

Remove hems from an existing flat sheet if necessary.

Lay the sheet evenly on the mattress, right side of the fabric down. (If the bed is not available start at the center of each side and mark the ends of each side, bring the marks together at each corner and pin a dart in place, that is the depth of the mattress and the amount you allowed for tucking under the mattress.)

Pin a dart in place at each corner to bring the sheet in to fit.
