We have a lot of family (and a lot of friends).
(We’ve grown since this picture was taken, but you get the drift).
We have a lot of beds for a lot of family and a lot of friends.
(If you count the lovely pink divan style cushion princess bed and two cribs, we have 31 beds.)
We need a lot of sheets for a lot of beds for a lot of family and a lot of friends.
(Let’s do the math: 6 cowboy beds x 2, 2 cowgirl beds x 2, 1 queen size bed x 3, 1 full size bed x 3, 4 girl’s room beds x 2, 12 other twin beds x 2, 2 cribs x 2….wait. Holy Sheet!)
It took some time to work out a system for a lot of sheets for a lot of beds for a lot of family and a lot of friends.
(On the Sheet List. Bed Rotation Chart)
To support this system for a lot of sheets for a lot of beds for a lot of family and a lot of friends I used pillow case covers (to keep the sheets and pillowcases neat, dust-free and organized). I wrote on the covers to ask our guests to change their beds.
(Full of Sheet).
This system has worked for quite a few years, but it was time for a change. The sheet bags were made from zippered pillow case covers. They were just too big for the folded sheets.
The printing was a little wonky.
(Clearly “someone” didn’t Give a Sheet about the printing).
The sheets needed a hero.
They needed a Sheet Fairy!!
Thank you to my super talented illustrator – Brenda Ponnay (Secret Agent Josephine).
Thank you to my scissors and sewing machine.
Form fitted sheet bags (with zippers!)
