Stupid Fitted Sheet

Can anyone tell me how to fold a fitted sheet?

I'm pretty sure that it can be done, I've seen performed once before - by a BOY! Can you believe it? I was staying at a friend's house on an inflatable bed and the gentlemen of the house folded up the fitted sheet nice and neat right before my eyes. I've tried to replicate this amazing feat, but to no avail. I generally get frustrated and just ball the damn thing up. However, if anyone can impart this ancient secret to me - I'd be much obliged.

Why do I ask? Because I'm tired of bringing out guest sheets that have two nicely folded pillow cases, a nicely folded flat sheet and a wadded up ball of fitted sheet. I am vain and I would like to leave my guests with the impression than I can perform miraculous acts of sheet folding.

By the way, I'm not too good at origami. So I hope the secret technique doesn't involve too many intricate folds and creases! :)

I am with you sista!

I did find a nice pictoral tutorial (ha..say that 5 times fast) on flicker.

@ Laura B - AMAZING!! I think I can do that! (Also, totally love the kitty in the background)

@MOFM - I wish I didn't care, but I think it's the OCD in me coming out... :)

I have begun to realize that aliens do live on earth. They look just like us, act like us....except for one little detail....they can fold those f%#$cking fitted sheets!

I know how to do it -- technically, that is -- but somehow they still never come out completely flat!
