I finally found a use for the flat sheet!

I just use fitted sheets, the flat sheet does nothing but bunch up and get all crumpled...

I put it on the boxspring and it covered great like a dust ruffle (is that what they're called?) but matches the fitted sheet great.

....Cool, right? Did you already know that?

  • That's a good idea! Wish I had known that when we first got our cat. With those kitten claws he snagged the crap outta my ruffle thing! My daughter uses the flat sheets to make forts.

  • I never thought of that. My flat sheets don't get "scrumbled up" as my daughter calls it, but hers do. I don't even bother putting one on her bed anymore.

  • Very good idea! I've used them as curtains, lol, because I could buy them as single flat sheets in several different colors or patterns cheaper than a pair of curtains. They can be hemmed whatever length you need and the piece you cut can be used as ties or a matching valance.

  • I hung our boys flat sheets between the end of their beds for privacy. I'll keep your idea in mind for our bed though, it's a great idea!
