Was Grandma Right?

When my Grandmother first taught me how to make a bed, I’m pretty sure I looked at her like she had 3 heads. You see, she had me put the top sheet on up-side-down and inside-out (I know, right??)

Her reasoning behind this was because if you did it right, and folded down the sheet over the comforter, the pattern would be right-side-up and right-side-out.

I’m also pretty sure that the only time I ever made a bed this way was AT Grandma’s house.

My reasoning was probably along the lines of…”if it’s not made, you’ll see the pattern MY way.” Or “if I pull the comforter all the way up, you won’t see the sheet anyway.”

Enter the year 2010 and my need to purchase twin-sized sheets for my kids.

Wouldn’t you know it?? The tag is on what I would consider the “top” and the pretty boarder is on the “bottom”!! The princesses and Cars cars are up-side-down!!!

Now, I’m not sure if I should put these sheets on inside-out since the boarder is on both sides and THAT’S the part I’d flip down over the comforter…

But…was Grandma right??
