4. Burrito Pillowcase

The pillowcases that came with your bed sheets are probably not as fun as custom “burrito” pillowcases. Using the fun roll-up sewing method (it’s like magic!), you’ll learn to sew a bed-size pillowcase with a contrasting border and flange. This project takes just 15 minutes, so you can make 4 with your extra hour of daylight!
