    Does anyone have the tutorial to make the pillowcase using the hotdog method?? I've got the fabric cut but don't understand the directions I was given. It doesn't show which way to lay the fabric---up or down??? Help--would really appreciate it.

    Thank you for all the different ways to make the same thing. Isn't it funny---it is called Hot Dog, Sausage and Tube Pillowcases but all the same. I'm ready to roll that hot dog and make two beauitful pillowcases to go with the King Size quilt I made for son and wife for Christmas. You all are fabulous for answering so fast!!

    I so enjoy making pillowcases and I love doing the tube method. They're so quick and easy and I've made several sets.

    I have made over 70 of the pillowcase for charity and friends, go on YouTube and look for Sauceage pillowcase, there is a demo to how it is done.

    I saw the one done by the Missouri Quilt Company, and I made four of them and wrote down important parts.

    I took the pillowcases to a Quilt shop that donated them and it was to go as part of the count of the Million pillowcase goal.

    I recently started making pillowcases in the tube/roll/hotdog/etc method and love it! It looks so nice and neat when done and sooo easy!

    I'm assuming you mean the roll up method. If you care to share your e-mail address I can send you the tutorial put out by Missouri Star Quilt Company or possibly go to their website. It is an absolutely fun way to make the cases. I'm making 50 for a charity project - 5 to go!! I tried to insert their tutorial in here but it wouldn't work.

    I think the Missouri Quilt tutorial is the most straight forward explanation of the "Hot dog" or "Burrito" or "tube" method of making a pillowcase.

    There was a 2nd one on YouTube at one time that had the written instructions also. They are sure EZ and I will cut a bunch out at a time and do them.

    I have a few to make up that I didn't have time at Xmas to get done. We have a Niece and Nephew that have 10 grandkids. We have two, one of which lives with her Father which we never see.
    Everyone loves Pillowcase, my friends got a lot of what I made for Xmas, not quilts but other things.

    I just made two from the Missour Star Quilt Co, I love Jenny, she explains things so well, and it was finished in 2 hours, and looks beautiful...Please try there first, you will love it and so much more to learn there.

    I agree, she does a nice job and showing you step my step on how to make things. Would love to live near that shop, but not this time of year.

    I have heard it called the 'burrito' method. I love making these pillowcases because it gets done so quickly and I feel so accomplished!

    The one I used over and over again and it is so CLEAR, is Making a Sausage Pillowcase with Judy. I think if you just type that in, it will come up. It's really good.
