Spent the afternoon yesterday watching some videos I think are good for both the beginner and more advanced. I'm self taught & this gave me some insight as to a few disciplines while sewing which I hope will help in the future.  They are from  West Valley College youtube site, have several video classes for basic construction, fashion design, patternmaking, etc...classes that they offer.

Best of's FREE to watch.  

Hope they help you as much as they have…

Sure you can, Lisa! You'll just make two cases, turn the 1st inside out, keep the 2nd right side out and place it into the the first and stitch around the opening. Then flip the whole thing...two sided pillowcase. You might want to topstitch to hold in place. You can do it! And if you didn't want to make them reversible, you can always use flannel-backed satin. It's a bit more durable. Give it a try...if you get stuck, just shout out here at SWN and someone will come to the rescue. If you need immediate information, use the chat box at the bottom right of your screen. Good luck and Happy Sewing! :o)

Hey Lisa - My grandma always made her satin pillowcases from a medium weight satin, but hers were lined with satin too. When one side would wear out, she'd turn the case inside out and use the 'new' side. I need to make some too. My hair needs all the help it can get! LOL Hope this helps. Let us know what you sew up!
