      Suzanne…this is the perfect time to go to the yard good store and get soft flannel by the yard. Measure the mattress and depth of the sides…add 4 inches to all sides. They have sheet holders…they look like the old grandma garters…you fasten them to the 4 corners of the fabric to form a “fitted” sheet.

      Surprisingly…the flannel is not too hot in the summer and stands up to numerous washings. T-shirt material is another good find. My kids went from cribs to youth beds…big mistake…the sheets were more expensive than for my queen bed…so I made my own.

      Hope this helps you! Toots

      some bed sheets and a blanket. Considering she’s also toilet training,
      I figure I’ll need several sets. I’m always amazed at how much sheets
      cost…it’s just a big piece of fabric!

      In the past, I have bought
      cheap sets to save money, but they remained scratchy and hard after
      repeated washings. I want to find sheets that don’t break the bank, but
      will give my daughter something soft and comfortable to sleep on. Is
      there a certain thread count I should look for?

      Isn’t there some other
      measure of softness, besides the thread count? Where can I look for a
      good deal? I’m in the Boston area.
