Tube Pillowcase-Variation

I have been wanting to make some pillowcases to match the quilts that I am taking to my daughter in February. Although I love the tailored look of the tube-sausage type pillowcase that are popular among quilting people, I also like to have the envelope flap inside the pillow to hide the pillow. I have been working on a prototype and have the first one done. The first one does not have the contrast fabric on the back but I have now planned how to make ones that does, as well as having the envelope finish inside. I am trying to have minimal seams as in the  original sausage-tube type pillowcase.

I will send out the tutorials to those in my projects group when I get them done.
