bed linen

While doing a 4 year tour of duty on inland work boats that used odd size matresses, the galley hand (crumb boss) used flat sheets of the next size commercially available (probabley full) and tied knots in the corners to make a tailor fit fitted sheet worked good and all the sheets were the same. I worked good for the crew and held well, a strategicly placed safety pin would be helpful if it crawls on you.
