    I made two pillowcases this weekend and am not at all happy about how they turned out. Anyone out there that can give me an easy, neat way to make them. I'd like to make three more for my granddaughter, Rachel.
    Thanks for the help.

    I'll be watching this, as I would like to know also. I know there are a lot of them being made for the million pillows....

    I made about 13 of these pillowcases following the directions from Missouri Star. Love it, it's so simple.

    This is a good video too. All Finished seams the easy way. I'll check out the Missouri star one too.

    Thank you for both tutes. I have wanted to do this, but reading about how to make something is more difficult than seeing the actual things done. I am a visual perosn. :lol:

    I also used the Missouri Star Quilt Tutorial and I love it. I am a beginning sewer & quilter. I made several and they turned out very cute. So fun to make! :) Good luck!!

    I used the Missouri Star tutorial too, took me about 20 minutes to make a pillowcase, it was fast and easy. And I finished it with a french seam, so no exposed seams anywhere.
