    Don't feel so bad. Sometimes, even those who aren't exactly rookies haven't ever made a single pillow case in their lives!

    Hmmmm, not quite sure who *that* could be....

    Bev posted a link to the directions. I bookmarked it because I knew I'd never know how to do it either!! :lol:

    Bev's directions are perfect. I made one so far and it was extremely easy. I thought turning the thing would be difficult but it went easily.

    I added a few steps--mostly ironing every seam as I went. Plus--don't forget to make the first seam smaller, and the second a bit wider.

    If you have a serger, that makes a nice seam finish, also.

    Then you put right sides together, as usual.

    I did the same Karla.
    My first seam was 1/4 inch and 2d seam was 1/2 inch.
