Tuck-In Pillowcases

We've also seen them called European pillowcases, envelope pillowcases. Whatever the name, we just know we like them so much better than the open-ended variety...

Instead of being exposed at the end (like most pillowcases in the US), European pillowcases cover the end of the pillow. An approximately 9-inch flap wraps into the case, holding the pillow in place and neatly covering the end. They're easy to make, as Sarah shows us here.
