This guide to bedding sizes is a great reference to help you calculate the measurements required for your sheet, but I suggest taking your own measurements of the mattress you are sewing for, as sizes and especially depths may vary.

Cut away the square that is remaining in the corner, leave 1cm half inch for seam allowance indicated with an X. The right sides of the sheet should be facing each other as pictured. Sew a seam back stitching towards the corner and finish the raw edge with a serger or zig zag stitch. Repeat for all corners.
Try it on your bed at this stage just to make sure you are on the right track. Serge or zig zag right around the raw edge of the sheet.
