Cut 4 pieces of 1/4" or wider elastic 10 inches long.

Center each piece of elastic at the bottom of each dart on the wrong side of the sheet. Stretch each end of the elastic as far as it will go along the edge of the sheet. Use a zig zag stitch to attach the elastic to the corners of the sheet, keeping the elastic stretched so that it will pull in the sides. Repeat on all four corners.
