I decided that if she got some special pillow cases for Christmas that were just for her, then she might (please, please, please) let me have all of the others back. So I set to work. They turned out great and I thought you might want to know how to make them. I got the fabric from the $1.50 per yard bin at Walmart. I bought 2 yards and it made 2 pillow cases. And, I'm happy to report that she loves them and has let me have most of the other pillow cases back. :)
1. Find a pillow case you already have and flip it inside out.
2. Take your fabric (cute isn't it) and fold it inside out (so that the pattern sides are facing each other.) Then lay your pillow case on top of it. Make sure to leave an extra 4-5 inches at the top for the seam.
3. Cut your fabric using the pillow case as a guide. Don't forget to leave 1/2 an inch for your seams.
