Sewing Angels always does Community Service Sewing.   Many times Aletha doesn’t know what the group will be doing until the day before.  A popular project is the Burrito-style Pillowcases.

Burrito Style Pillowcase Instructions:

  • 9-12” x 41″  strip for the cuff
  • 2-3” x 41″ strip for the trim
  • 27” x 41″ rectangle for the body

Press trim in half lengthwise wrong side together.

  1. Press body, trim and cuff in half widthwise to find the center.
  2. Lay cuff single layer, right side up
  3. Lay trim, raw edges together, along top edge of cuff matching the center.
  4. Pin body fabric right side down on top of trim and cuff matching the center.
  5. (You’ll have 4 raw edges together.) Pin so the heads of the pins are to the outside of the pillowcase
  6. Tightly roll body toward pins ending a couple of inches below top edge.
  7. Bring lower cuff over the body fabric and pin raw edges together. Wrong side of cuff should be on top.
  8. Sew ¼” seam, remove pins and turn right side out through either end.
  9. Press, trim sides so all are even, fold right sides together.

Finish side and bottom seam by serging or with a French seam
