Anyway, this is a very simple set of bags to make. I say bags because you will be able to get two bags out of each pillowcase you cut.
1) Cut a standard pillow case in half the short way.
2a) For the "bottom" half of the pillowcase: Fold the raw edge to form a seam and sew all the way around. (I marked 1" and folded twice...it made for a pretty small seam, but it did the job.)
2b) For the "top" half of the pillowcase: Sew a 1/2" or 5/8" seam across the bottom raw edge. The top seam is already done. YAY!
3) If desired, box the corners. Turn the bag inside-out and make the corners into an "arrow"; mark the bottom of the equilateral triangle and sew across the line. Make sure the same distance is used on both corners or else you will have a funny bag...
|Inside of boxed corner...see the "arrow"?|

Have a super leap day, and take care of you!
