    Whenever I perform the exercises that have been given by doctors I have to spread a bed sheet on the floor to lie down on my back on it. Today I couldn't get a bed sheet so I used another piece of cloth that was shorter. My legs were out of the it. Today I realised that the cloth should come up to my feet or it should be head to toe long.

    Please check my sentences.

    End of story.
    My legs were out of the it. Today I realised that the cloth should come up to my feet or it should be head to toe long. Are these sentences totally wrong and unnatural?

    Good guess!

    You might have noticed that I agree with Piscean's corrections. For starters, he's right. Also, I would have said the same thing. (Or something very close.)

    Can I say "My legs as well needed to be on that piece of cloth to perform those exercises correctly"?

    No, if my feet are not on the piece of cloth then it becomes difficult to perform a few of those exercises.
