Today I want to share with you one of my most-read blog posts, written for the Craftsy sewing blog.

I chose to write about this topic because I actually hate flat sheets and was in search of some great fitted sheets.

I couldn’t find anything I liked, in the shops: some were too pricey, others too cheap (read: made in see-through fabric). So I decided to DIY and make bed sheets from fitted sheets.

And it looks like there is a lot of people out there with the same problem… glad to be part of the solution 😉

So: if you want to know how to sew bed sheets at home, you’re in the right place!

Bonus: you’ll get a fabulously useful spreadsheet that will do the math for your custom-sized fitted sheets… and it’s free!

Read now everything I have written for the Craftsy sewing blog!

    Thanks for this great idea to make fitted sheets out of flat sheets.

  2. This is fantastic, Irene! I made a tutorial like this years ago, but it’s nothing like this one! I love the idea of the calculator! Pinning! 🙂 Lisa
