I finished off the case with French seams on the side and bottom to keep all the raw edges enclosed. (Here is a great tutorial on how to do a French seem by Coletterie.) But, you can can simply sew the right sides together and serge, zigzag stitch, or trim/press the edges. From start to finish it took me less than an hour, and that was with lots of extra ironing and sewing for the French seams.
I can't wait for the kids to finish their pillowcases!
