    I know you have made many of these Marilyn and I was hoping you would chime in with your expertise. Thanks so much. Hope you are staying safe.

    I do that all the time, 24” by WOF for the body, 12” by WOF For the cuff.

    I think that would work just fine.

    You fold up the ends together so the seam is inside.

    I just made pillow cases for my bed. I make them longer for queen sized pillows. This time I cut the cuff 9" and the length of the pillow, longer. I don't do the 2" contrast piece, that often. Usually only for the kiddos.

    I do french seams all around though.

    That's kinda what I thought too. I've made them before but it's been several years and I do seem to remember that they are really roomy. Thanks for your input - now off to make a burrito pillowcase.

    I've done it. I've made tons of these and honestly they are oversized usually eats the pillow. You can do without the 2inches as well. Ive probably made 20 at least. Either way she'll love it!

    Burrito Pillowcase question

    I have been asked to make a burrito pillowcase for my DGD to take to college. She wants it to match the quilt I made for her for Christmas. However - the only piece of fabric I have left over is not quite long enough. The main body of the pillowcase is supposed to be cut to 27x40 but my fabric is only 25 x 42. I'm wondering if I could cut the cuff 2 inches wider to make up for the difference.
Working...
