Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Pattern Description:

I learned this technique from a friend and then wrote my own version of the tutorial. It's a super easy, super fast way to make pillowcases. I've also heard it called "Burrito" and "Taco."

I originally posted this tutorial on my blog for the American Patchwork & Quilting's 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge. I made oodles of these for the Challenge, and I use this method whenever I "gift" a quilt. It makes a fabulous coordinating gift bag!

You Will Also Need:
