    The finished size is 9 3/4 to 10" wide X 15" long for the pillowcase. The pocket can vary from 9 3/4 wide to 10"wide and about 11 1/2 long....sometimes I make the pocket a little smaller if I'm short on the novelty fabric. I use cotton or flannel for the novelty fabric. That's fine with the GKTHW organization. I try to use up scraps when I do the pocket.

    These kinds of "pocket pillowcases" are used here in Norway. I was confused when I first moved here when I saw them. We all got quite a laugh when my Norwegian girl friends saw my "open-ended pillowcases."

    The pocket does keep the pillow inside the case, but I prefer the open-ended kind because I love to embroider or applique the hems.

    Here is the address to send the pillowcases if you are inclined to donate.
    Give Kids the World Village
    210 South Bass Road

    I just talked to a lady in the office there and they always need these cases. Each child and their siblings are allowed to pick a pillowcase. The org. supplies the little hospital sized pillow to go with the cases. My friend volunteers there and said the children, and their parents, are so appreciative and touched that strangers would make something for the child. A small gift like this really touches a special child. Thanks to any of you that choose to make some cases.
