    I havae been making pillowcases to store my quilts in for a long time now. Usually I have enough fabric left from the project, even if I have to piece it. By the way , the French seam looks really nice, or you can also serge the seam to finish. And another good part to this is when your quilts are stored at a glance you can tell which quilt is which , without unfolding and having to refold.

    This is a slick way on making pillow cases. I have a friend with a surger so after I sew the header on, she surges them finished and we donate them to CASA for the children having to leave their homes and going into the foster care system. Sometimes they have no warning so leave with nothing. CASA gives them a "backpack" full of toiletries, etc and I thought a pillow case that they can keep would be nice too. CASA is thrilled with that idea.

    Pillowcases make such a lovely gift. I love this method.
    I go one more step and take my edge joining foot and top stitch very close to the seam where the cuff meets the pillowcase body. This way when its washed it lays flat without having to iron.

    I have used this tutorial to make pillowcases and really like it- very easy. It makes sense to make a pillowcase to store a quilt. Your post reminded me that I need to make some of these for Christmas gifts- need to get started soon.

    That's what I love about this msg. board - You can't beat starting your day w/learning a new trick. I ALWAYS learn something new on here.

    Thanks so much Michael - don't ever think you're posting too many tuts or pics (or anyone else for that matter). I can never get enough of all the techniques, tips, ways to do 'stuff'.

    Keep 'em coming!!!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I just started sewing/quilting this summer. And a friend told me about these, they are super simple to make and soo much fun. I have made a set for each of my kids already and will probably make one to make a quilt I am making for my husbands great uncle. Although, now that the top is together he is telling me I should keep the quilt and not give it away. he is too cute. :) I love it.

    I know I know....you are thinking I'm posting too many videos as of late. Sorry about that, but I thought this is a great watch for people who wanted to make a pillowcase, but thought it would be difficult to attempt.

    Michael, there are NEVER enough tutes, and you find the best of them! If I haven't told you before, THANK YOU! :) :) :)

    Great idea! Some of the quilt group here in my area make pillowcases when doing charity quilts.
