How to fix fitted sheet to stay in place Problem Fitted sheets do not stay put  So I have a high mattress 17 inches+ with the foam pad 19″ .  I tried the fitted sheet stay put things but they don’t stay.  You know that deep pocketed fitted sheets cost a fortune and we  seem to go through fitted sheets quickly.  I make sure my fitted sheets stay in place on my high bed. I try jersey fitted sheets which have more give then woven sheets.  This diy fix for fitted sheets  would work on woven sheets as well.    I sew elastic to the corners to keep they sheets in place.. here is how to do it.
