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!

FYI, for others, pattern 5 isn’t free. Maybe it was before being featured here, but it isn’t now.

I find the same thing. The Book Bag Pattern is coming up with a charge of $1.85. Probably just a link error, but please fix it! Thanks.
