    That is a very good video and very easy to follow. I have it in my favorite places and refer to it often.

    Great idea, Michael. Thanks for passing on the information. I am reluctant to try new patterns, but I tried the one you refer to and it was so easy and turned out so nice, I tried again and again. lol

    Oh yeah Michael, that's how I make mine too! If I am making a special quilt (like for a wedding gift)I make them a case for it also.

    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.

    Another name for this is called the "sausage roll pillowcase" They really are fun to make and make great gifts. I did some of these pillowcases with Christmas Rudolf fabric and put the kid's Christmas gifts in them. No more wrapping paper for me!!

    I LOVE this; much easier than the way I'd done them in the past.

    I just did two of these pillowcases from the tutorial with my grandkids, ages 2 and 4. I had the tube ready when they came to visit...quite a mystery about what we were making. They sat on my lap to help me sew the seams, and loved pulling the fabric out of the tube to see what it was. Then we did the side seams. They had a finished project to take home that they can use. Great fun!

    the lady gave measurements of 27inches, 9 inches and 2 inches... but .... just realised she had a measurement she cut to at the beginning so that must be the other measurement I need... depth.... just made a black, white and red quilt so will make two pillow slips to match... just what I needed was this advice.... wonderful...

    Thanks, Michael, This is a great tutorial. I have made a pillowcase for my charity sewing and will be taking two of them this next week. We meet every Thursday and I am trying all sorts of things, Crochet hats, booties, baby afghans, and also baby quilts, clothes,etc. Am having a blast! Thanks for the great tutorial!! Also have used the tutorial on binding and mitered corners! Great! Keep up the information to us who don't surf the web!! Shelis

    Have made another two pillow cases and DH suggested that since they might be used to carry personal belongings in, why not put some sort of drawer string through the casing at the opening. I did that and it looks like it will work and make for more use of the pillow slip.
