p.. Hints From Heloise Put Some Stretch In Contour Sheets By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: I inherited a number of odd- sized sheets. Since my mattresses were two different sizes. . .1 made my own contour sheets. I placed the sheet evenly on RECEIVES CAP - Artie Jo Boyson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Emerson, 737 S.

After sew- ng a row of stitches on each corner (diagonally), I tried it on the bed again. If it seemed to 'it, I removed the pins, and sewed it a second time. . . making flat fell or french seam. I then sewed a piece of colored bias tape (to match the room) in o n c corner of each sheet so that T could easily 1 identify t h e right sheet for the right mat- u . . tress. lielols ' After the first sheet for each bed is completed, save the corner that you cut out and use it For a pattern. Then it will not be necessary to measure every sheet. C.N. Dear Ladies: Thanks for all of your ideas on making contour sheets. I put all methods together and made contour sheets this week! Some I ruined. . . Patterns are wonderful but they do not fit all sizes of mattresses ... or so I found out! The above directions were excellent as far as I'm concerned and here's how I did it: As my mattresses varied in size I found it far better to do just what "C.N." suggested. I placed the sheet (after being washed because some sheets shrink), on top of my mattress, and holding each corner out at a 450 degree angle took some straight pins and pinned the corners to the exact size of the mattress. I followed her instructions and tried the sheets back on the bed before finishing the underneath corner. When I was sure it fitted, I finished the sheet by inserting elastic on opposite corners (two insertions of elastic instead of the regular four), thus saving on elastic. Here is another hint I discovered: it's an easier way to make up the bed for those who have twin-sized mattresses pushed together to form a king-sized bed: If you have never found a contour sheet to fit an over-sized king" mattress, instead of making twin-sized sheets to cover each mattress, make the contour sheet to fit the entire expanse of the bed. This will not only eliminate the problem of sheets on each mattress but I found that it was far easier instead of putting the sheet on all four corners of each mattress (which makes eight times) to apply it to only four corners. This cuts your work in exactly half. Think that over! Also. . . instead of washing two bottom sheets each week we are only washing one! For those who send their linens to commercia laundrys you may be charged i wee bit more for a king-sizet sheet but it is cheaper than pay ing for two separate sheets. Where can you get your ma terial: Buy a big sheet (or sheet ing) and turn it sideways (this, means the exact wrong way across the bed) and continue from there to make your own custom-made sheets. If you will look in your closet and find your favorite contour sheet, you may easily rip (this means to remove the thread) from one corner of this "pet" sheet, and press it flat on your ironing board. Then. . . you wil have a perfect pattern for your individual contour sheets. Later the sheet may be resewn. Lay a newspaper underneath this sheet and take a crayon and draw around the pattern, then take your scissors and cut it out. Anc use it on those new sheets you are cutting. For those of you who are copying sheets with insertions . . the part cut from the corner of the sheet will suffice for your insertion. Some sheets have reinforcet gusset, try putting some elastic THE OTTAWA HERALD Monday, March 4, 1963 Golden Age Club Meeting Golden Age Recreation dub opened the meeting Saturday afternoon in Youth Center by repeating the Lord's prayer.
