Hello
To make a Pillowcase with an Inside Flap to hide the pillow.
This will make an all one colour pillowcase.
Queen Size Pillow 20"x30".
Queen Size PillowCase  21"x36" as seen on the internet.
4" hem for the front on one short end
1" hem for the inside flap on the other short end
6" over inside Flap
1/4" seam allowance
How much fabric do I need to cut out for the front??
How much fabric for the back with the flap ??
This will make an all one colour pillowcase.
Thank you B.

Answer
Bea,
I suggest you sketch this out on paper as a pattern with all the dimensions and use a calculator to find you total yardage needed for this project.  You could also contact the Youtube person that made the video.
