Trick To Extending Top Sheets

At times, I find that the top sheets I’ve purchased aren’t the exact size as the bed we have. Unfortunately, our mattress is customized and it’s a fit between a full sized and a queen sized mattress, thus sheets fitting it can be a hit and miss.

If you have this same dilemma as ours, there’s a trick to remedy this by adding an extra piece of length at the bottom part. Use an old blanket or sheet that you’re ready to dispose and take about two or three inches in excess, or depending on how long you need the extra for, and have this sewn on the edges of the bottom part.

For Christmas, I’m Getting A Bedroom Corner Makeover!

One of the presents I got from the husband this year is a make-over of my bedroom corner.

So, I’m looking into some design ideas for how I want my corner to look and if the hubs can actually do this himself.
