    There is one from Missouri Star Quilting (youtube) that looks easy. I haven't ACTUALLY tried it though...! Good luck!

    I have made several from the Missouri Star video. They are fun and I can make a pair in about an hour.

    I think it's the same as the above link but I like the one where you make a tube and when you turn it right side out the edges of the decorative piece and the open part where you put the pillow in are all finished. Next I make a french seam on side and bottom and all edges are inside and less likely to fray. I found it at this site: allpeoplequilt and it's called roll up in the pattern list.

    What is a "french seam".

    I've done several like Robin Gallagher and they turn out great, and if you have an embroidery machine, the little ones love their name on it.

    Yeah, that sounds the same as the Robin Gallagher one! That's how I'll do it.

    teddyBear Lady,
    French seam...hides raw edges. Put fabric WRONG sides together. Sew a seam. Trim the seam. Turn the fabric right sides together having the just trimmed seam "trapped" inside. Sew another seam enclosing the trimmed seam. Now you have no raw edges!

    I just make my own pattern for whatever size pillow case I need. If I add a second fabric at the opening, I use my serger to finish it off.

    So how do you get the flap inside that stops your pillow coming out,or seeing in the side of it.

    I'm making them for my grandkids so that they have pillow cases on thier pillows and not on the floor. It's easy. The ends of the case are sewed together and the opening is in the back; either in the middle or to one end; Instead of sewing them together you hem the ends and overlap them before sewing up the sides. It's kind of like making covers for cushions.
