    I have made and posted pictures of the french seam style pillowcases, but can't work out how to make the flap style pillowcase neatly with nice borders and trims etc.
    Have any of you done this type? If you have can you please give me some tips.
    I did try a search but the one I came across had my head spinning. This poor old brain couldn't quite grasp it .

    No. But that is a good idea.
    The one I was after is like a store bought one.

    There is a link to "housewife" pillowcases that might give you some clues.

    I think the instructions were for a queen-size pillowcase, but it might give you some clues for the "how-to"

    Don't know how to access another window on this computer to get the exact site
