How to fold sheets

I always envied beautiful linen closets with neatly folded sheets but seriously could NOT figure out how to make them look so nice.  After much practice, I have figured out a way, and wanted to share it with you because we all want pretty linen closets, right?

1. Lay out your fitted sheet as straight as you can.  It doesn't have to be perfect.

2. Fold it in half.

3. Fold it in half again

 4. Fold it in half AGAIN!

5. Flip it over. This is what the other side looks like and you can see my not so straight edges.

5. Now fold it in half the other way.

6. Fold your top sheet neatly and lay it on the bottom.  Put your folded fitted sheet and your folded pillowcase(s) on top.

7. Fold your top sheet over just far enough so that it matches the edge of your folded top sheet.

8. Now fold over the other side of the top sheet to meet the other edge.  YOUR DONE!

Wasn't that easy?  Doesn't it look so nice!  This of course was a twin.  But it works the same with other sizes.  Sometimes I have to fold them in thirds instead of halves to make it work.  Just play around with what works for you and your space.  But here is a picture of the linen closet with King sheets (ther red) and the twin sheets.  So nice!

Be sure to post pictures of your success!  I want to see those nice looking linen closets!  Before and after!
