Repairing Fitted Queen Sheets?

How do I measure the elastic to be replaced on a queen fitted sheet? The elastic goes all the way around the sheet, not just the corners.

I would sew a piece of elastic a few inches from the edge of the corner you are repairing. No need to have the elastic go all the way around.

You could try to do just the corners before going the full sheet.

You would need to channel the elastic at least 2 feet on each side of the corner to make sure you have a good balance.
That means about 2 1/2-3 feet of elastic on each corner.
If that does not work then you can always go the full sides/ends.

Here is how to measure elastic:
"In general, you can figure the stretch allowance and cut elastic one-third shorter than the total length of the fabric to be gathered onto the elastic.
