    I just made the pillow cases on the Missouri Quilt Company tutorial - oh my - how easy and cute. The 27 inches she recommends for the cases is bigger than my kids pillows but they will still be surprised when they come home today to all new pillow cases.

    I love making them and always seem to find some "focus" fabric that catches my eye and end up buying more stash to make them. LOL

    I just finished using the same method to create a top sheet - wanted to see if it works....I don't have enough material to do one for each kid so I may be in trouble when they come home from school!

    I have made a lot of these pillow cases but I cut my fabric 22 inches instead of the 27 inches. They are easy to do.

    Selecting the fabric is as much fun as making the pillowcases.
    If they are too long for your pillows, it would only take a minute to shorten them.

    Definitely the best tutorial on pillow cases - thanks so much for sharing! I love the Missouri Star Quilt Co. It's one of my favorite tutorial sites for both quilting and sewing projects, but somehow I missed this one. If anyone wants to check out their site and their other tutorials, here's the link . . .

    Those pillowcases are so much fun. I made 8 of them for some of my Grandchildren for Christmas, they loved them.

    I have made those for Christmas presents. My cousin taught me how to make those. With the french seams. I love making them in hawaiian print. My friends just loved them. and when they see no seams they are just wondering how I did it. So nice to see a smiling face. Thanks for the link.

    I love making pillow cases but I hate when the flange points toward the case instead of the hem. SOooo....After I do the hot dog thingy I repress the hem allowing enough room for the seam to go toward the case and the flange to point toward the hem. Then I make a little seam across the casing a very scant 1/4" from the flange. After that I go ahead and do the French seam thing and I'm done.

    I LOVE making pillowcases from this tutorial. I like to make flannel cases and matching pj bottoms for Christmas. Every year everyone is ready for another set and like to see what new prints each will get.

    A couple of years ago we made up "fun" cases for our troops that are in the hospital in Germany. It was from another forum. She is a school teacher and makes it her class's project. The kids love to make them with their hand prints.

    I bought my serger so I could zip them out quickly.
