Help: Making a fitted sheet smaller.
I have a pull out sofa bed that measures 52 x 72 inches. Mattress is 4.5 thick and I have an inch topper to put on it. I just bought a new full size sheet which is 54 wide by 75 long. Pocket seams are 8 inches long. It is 500 thread count cotton and has an elastic all the way around
So I have to shorten it lengthwise 3 inches and width wise 2 inches. Do I have to rip it apart and redo it? or is there another way. I haven't really done any elastics yet and was trying to avoid that if I can but will give it a shot if that is the only way to do it.
