Sew Together Tuesday: How to Sew a Cuddle® Bed Sheet

Sew Together Tuesday: How to Sew a Cuddle® Bed Sheet

If you love wrapping yourself in a Cuddle® throw, this week's project will make it feel like you landed on Cloud Nine. Our national educator, Teresa Coates, will share her newfound love of Cuddle® sheets—yes, bed sheets!

While it might seem counterintuitive, Cuddle® sheets are surprisingly cooling and unexpectedly soft. We’ve created a pattern to make it super easy for you to make your own fitted sheet, no matter what bed size you have. Teresa will walk you through how to measure your mattress, so you can make sure it will fit.

Join us on Tuesday, September 12 at 10am Pacific and learn how simple it is to make your own  fitted sheet with a precut 3-yard cut of Cuddle® 3 90. If your favorite color of Cuddle® 3 90 is not available as a precut, buy 3 1/4 yards and straighten any wiggles at the ends to get an accurate 108” length.

You can download the pattern for the Cuddle® Fitted Bed Sheet from the Free Patterns section of our website. 

*Be advised that this pattern may not fit ALL mattress sizes and types. While it is meant for most mattresses, be sure to measure your mattress beforehand to make sure the measurements will  fit your specific mattress.
