Pillow Cases

I need a good, easy pattern (or instructions) for making pillowcases. Several years ago i made a bunch of them, but forgot how. Now I don't remember the measurements for them. Thank you for any help.

Does anyone know where I might find solid Christmasy jelly rolls to use as sashing on a Christmas quilt? I've tried Missouri and Paducah. They don't have any.
