Marge,

Thank you for posting this tutorial!! I am making a quilt for a coworker for Christmas and wanted to make matching pillow cases. The problem being I had NO idea how to go about it. I am happy I can put it all together as a set now like I wanted.

Thanks for the post!  I've been having problems with the french seam portion or step 7 and step 8 and now know what I've been doing wrong.  Can hardly wait to go home tonight and make a pillow case.

Great tutorial! This is a keeper......I'm going to try it! Thanks so much!

 

I just made one of these to match DD's MQV.  The instructions suggested using a clue stick to hold down all 3 pieces instead of pinning.  I was too lazy to use the glue, and just pinned, but thought some of you might like using the glue.

You should be able to highlight the instructions then right click.  There should be an option to print come up.

Nana - thanks for finding this for Dee.  I tried a couple of search ideas cause I knew I had tagged this but wasn't having any luck.  :o( 

I just got a message from my guild that ConKerr Cancer here in Georgia is trying to gather pillowcases for the holidays for the various children's hospitals here.  Cut off date is coming up next week.  I am sure the other chapters around the country are having a push too.  I think I will look through my holiday fabrics and see if I can't come up with a couple of pillowcases for them.

It was really easy for me to find....  it is in My Favorites list so that I can find it to refresh my memory anytime I want to do a pillowcase.

If you go back to your first post with the tutorial and click the more button at the top of the post it gives you the option of adding to your favorites.   Then you can access your favorites from your home page.   It will be in the same place as my friends, my gallery, etc.

Thanks, Nana for the info you just posted on how to save a post.  I now have that in my favorites even though it is printed off also.  I also printed off the same method from a site in Canada that Granny Agnes had told me about - kickasscountrystore.com.  Both seem to be the exact same thing so I am well covered.

Thanks, Marge, for posting this tutorial.  I read about it the other night and decided I could make pillowcases for the kids, grand kids and one great grand daughter. This will give them something a bit personal along with their gift cards.  

I bought quite a few one yard cuts at Wal*Mart yesterday and have a couple here I can use and ordered a few online last night.  One is already on its way to me so that is a good thing.  This will be quite the varied selection of pillowcases - the only duplicates will be two pairs of SeaHawk ones.  

Thanks again.

We have been using this method whenever my sewing guild has a sewing day for ConKerr Cancer.  I think it takes longer to press the seams when you do the French seam than it does to sew the whole pillow case!

Do you have an ipad or such, you could copy tutorial to memory stick and play on your i-pad...or go online and watch as you sew...JMHO!
