At 7 she is old enough to be able to get herself changed and put her sheets in the washing machine. If she doesn't know how assist her, but make her the main one responsible for cleaning herself and other things up. If she discovers it late at night teach her to change, clean up and put new sheets on the bed in a quick fashion and then clean the rest when she gets up in the morning.

This isn't a punishment, it's her learning to clean it up. Especially since she is the one taking the pullups off. If she refuses to wear a pullup, which would prevent wet sheets, she needs to learn that she is responsible for cleaning them (or at least doing the brunt of work involved, without your attention).

Otherwise she can wear pull-ups.

On another note is she stressed? Have you brought her to the doctor? Make sure there is not some underlying issue behind this.

But as far as the wet sheets go, she is purposefully taking the pullups off to get the sheets wet. If you can try to explain to her why she needs to wear and talk to her about it, then explain that if she chooses to not wear them then she needs to be responsible for cleaning the sheets, since she's getting older now.

Once again try to bring her to the doctor or check out any underlying issues, since this has come up so unexpectedly.
