    Pillow Cases

    I need a good, easy pattern (or instructions) for making pillowcases. Several years ago i made a bunch of them, but forgot how. Now I don't remember the measurements for them. Thank you for any help.

    This is the best I've ever seen - another Jenny Doan of MSQC. She has a tutorial and I guarantee you'll be inspired. Go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrYWCma9wgM

    Can't you take the measurements from one of your own pillow cases??

    I like making cases to match quilt I've made also...have used MQ tute as a start on learning to make these cases. The guild loves getting them for Linus projects S well.
    take plenty of pic of family & friends, keep tabs on loved ones but make time for yourself !

    I was going to mention Jenny Doan's tutorial, too, but I see Jo Belmont already has.

    I love making pillowcases, and my grandkids love getting them, my dil loves for me to make them, then she doesnt have to search for cases, i even make the sheets to go with the cases. these make for great gifts.

    I agree with Jo Belmont.

    have fun making them. i just made some for my youngest Granddtr from a little kit bought at my LQS of owl fabric. Very cute. not the hot dog method but i zig zagged my seam just fine. also stitched a decorative stitch on the accent folded over fabric. the folded edge tends to curl up in the wash.

    I agree with the person who gave you the Jenny Doan, of Missouri Star Quilt Company. All her tutorials are great (and easy).

    if you're looking for quick, 1 yard will do you with a 5" fold over.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I make a dozen for my grands every Christmas & love Jenny Doan's 3 seam pillow case.

    The only tip I would add is watch the fabric you choose. I've picked some that made nice pillow cases but we're rough to lay that precious little cheek on!

    http://kickasscountrystore.com/hotdog.html This is a link to the best and easiest pillowcases that I have found. The diagrams and directions are simple and clear. Our guild has made dozens following these Canadian directions. The only change that I make is that I like a wider cuff so cut it between 10" and 12".

    This is just like the Jenny Doan Tute. Nice to have it in print though. Thanks for sharing.

    Have done it this way also. It was one of the first items my little niece made for her new bed. She did it with some scraps. Who'd've thought a 9 yr old would come up with that idea? I mean literally a bunch of scraps like a crazy quilt pillow case.
