I had a lot of Jungle Jive fabric left-over. A bit too much to donate and a bit too much to store.
The body was about 20", the trim finished at 1 1/2" and the cuff was 10". (Whatever fabric you have you want to make the finished body piece 26 1/2".)
After I had sewn the blocks together I added a 2" strip making sure I cut off the ends of the threads from the first stitching.
I made sure all the fabrics were going in the same direction before sewing everything together to make the body of the pillowcase. I don't like undoing serger stitching.
BUT with a difference. I do pin these pieces together so they don't slip. I do use the serger for the rest of the pillowcase. I don't do "french seams".
Okay, let's be really honest. The only thing I do the same is the rolling up part of the cuff to the body.
Sew the band to the body after rolling it together. See the instructions I have given the link to.
Once you pull the body out of the cuff it will look like this. Press the cuff at the seam carefully and press both the outside and the inside.
I sure as heck hope this isn't as clear as mud!!

Last Wednesday we had a snowstorm go through. Now, a lot of people are complaining about the winter. They have had enough, it's too cold, it's too long.
Love it. I can survive in this weather. You put on your touque, your winter coat, your gloves and your boots and you are all set.
It's a bit more beautiful than summer too.
You just can't beat a good snowstorm!!
