I actually didn't use fitted sheets on my son's bunk beds. I used a flat sheet or let them fold a blanket in half and let them sleep on that. Bunk beds are a nightmare!! LOL

Making my kids bed right now sucks. Trying to fit the fitted sheet over the corners that are up against the wall are HARD. I have found it to be easiest to slide the mattress off a bit so that I can reach the edges and then slide it back on. Its better then trying to get the bed but not to much on the bed so you can lift the side. 

I dont use flat sheets. Fitted it is and then a blanket. Thats it. I dont even use a fitted sheet on my own bed. And they can just make their own beds in the morning which is easy cuz its only the one blanket.

sew the top sheet to the bottom sheet at the bottom edge ....... use elastic sheet straps if the mattress is too thin to hold the sheets well ....teach her to make it to the best of her ability .....We have had two sets of differently constructed bunkbedss ( tubular metal and heavy wood ) at different times I thought making them up sucked turnips , excuse my frankness ...

I have been thinking about this all day.

I saw some real good ideas.

One was to use a fitted sheet on the bottom, with those things that are elasticized (adjustable) to keep the fitted sheet in place at the corner. Then use a top sheet: a flat sheet or a comforter only.

Another idea I saw was to sew a sheet to the bottom of the first sheet put on.  It would be a little tricky, but to use a fitted sheet, sewing it a slight bit above the elastic, centering it.

The last idea-a very ambitious one-would be to make a type of duvet cover from sheets that would snugly fit the mattress.   It would be like a huge pillow slip.

Possibly buttons could be used on the side seam, only on one side, to make it easier to wash, or even keep one side open and sew a ribbon of snaps or even sew ties at intervals keep it on You could also just wrap a sheet aroune the mattress and pin it on one side with safety pins. Then top with a cotton blanket.

These ideas can all be done with inexpensive sheets.
