Super Easy Pillowcases

Many of you may already know of this really neat roll-up method for making pillowcases but I was thinking about it over the weekend because I wanted to make my mom some satin pillowcases for Mother's Day.  I bought my satin last week but didn't buy enough...I should NOT trust my memory when buying fabric!  Anyway, I delivered them to Mom tonight and thought that some of you might not know of this easy method sooo...here it is:   For the Roll It Up pattern, click HERE.  You really can make a pillowcase in about 30 minutes!

There are several sites with directions and tutorials online but this one is my favorite.  It is also a PDF so you can print it out and file it with your other patterns.  Once you start making these, you will not want to stop so how about some inspiration...  You can never have too many dots...

Applique and embroidery are a great way to personalize a gift.

Vintage fabrics are always fun.

If you really get into making these quick and easy pillowcases and would like to do something nice for charity, you can join The American Patchwork and Quilting"s 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge and make pillowcases for kids in need.

You can make the basic pillowcase pattern or you can get fancy with over 40 other patterns like these:

Fabrics should be of good quality always. It is so important. For the best comfort we should also consider using linen products. good pillowcases from linensfactory.co.uk
