Advanced Bed Making Technique


How-to Make a Foot Fold

I love the feeling of clean cold sheets.  I prefer a cotton blend to flannel (flannel never gets cold!)

The one thing I don’t like about a well made bed is when my feet feel trapped and confined.

Here are the steps to a Foot Fold ,so your feet aren’t trapped, to add to  your bed making technique!

After putting the fitted sheet on the mattress spread the flat sheet on the top leaving enough sheet at the top to fold over the blanket.


At the foot make a 4 to 8 inch pleat  (depending on the length of your sheets) all along the mattress toward yourself. This photo is hard to see but you get the idea….

Then add the blanket, fold down the overhang at the head and tuck in (hospital corners)  all around.

Your feet will thank you.

Good Night!
