Some refer to the method she taught me as the 'burrito' method. I found an online tutorial that gives the same instructions so I won't fully repeat them here. By Googling for pillowcase instructions, you can find many tutorials, some good, some not as good. I found this method very easy...even if I did put the 'wrong' right sides together first and had to take that seam out. Old habits, you know, are hard to break and I'd gone into automatic mode at that point. I'll get it right on the next one.

It turned out pretty well if I must say so myself. This first one will be for my grandson for Christmas (I still don't have his quilt quilted!). The only "imperfection" I found was the widths of the opening and the bottom seam don't match, but when it's on a pillow, who will notice right?
