I didn't really need pillow cases....  Roll Eyes  But I made some anyway, because I do need to get rid of some fabric, and I'd way rather sew it then send it off to a thrift store!  And someone in the Destash Along made one, so I'm following suit Wink
I just traced a pillow case, and did some math to figure out how big to make the case part and how big to make the trim part.  Cut cut sew sew! simple, straight lines, and I guess I could always gift them... or keep them!  Cheesy

All 4, folded up pretty!  (I even ironed them!  It will be the only time they are ironed, I'm sure!)


2 of each, kind of matchy matchy, but not.




That's a good 2.5 or so yards (maybe even 3!) out of my craft closet, and into my linen closet! Cheesy

That's a great use of your fabric. One can not have too many pillow cases.
