Yes--make those sheets from your FAVORITE FABRIC!






Standard-size quilting cotton works GREAT, however I do love the ease of extra wide back quilting cotton or sateen cotton--it's extra smooth and silky feeling.



The ultimate Tula Pink bed sheet....



All you have to do is make sure to MEASURE accurately --both your bed mattress, and then the fabric you are cutting.

I walk you through each step.
There are lots of diagrams & photos to help keep things extra clear.






Supplies you will need depends on the size of the mattress you're covering.


Basically--- lots of fabric, 1 yd 1/4" elastic, safety pins, a sewing machine, (serging is faster but you don't have to do this), and some patience.



By the way--- I now make mine with NO elastic. (I've used it all on masks!) The sheets are all perfect, they fit snuggly and wash up perfectly.






















I can't wait to see your sheets.
