Nighty Night Shade

Update:  Congrats to Shelly #115
You are the winner!

Some devoted mothers 
send their college children...


cash $$$,
cookies,
maybe underwear
or food



But not me,
I prefer to send creepy pillowcases
for college daughter 
and her roommate.

I mean, who wouldn't want 
to wake up
to this cute little skeleton 
right in your face?

With just a flip they can
 be hid if needed.

This Night Shade fabric by Tula Pink 
just gets you 
off on the right foot 
for a bright sunny day!



Looks like Harry thinks 
she should sleep with
 one eye open.


Made these from my go-to 
pillowcase pattern by Moda.
It's great one. 
If you're looking for a pattern,
 let me know, I have some extra.

I think they would make the 
cutest throw pillows on her couch, 
but I'm not that devoted :). 

 

It is giveaway day!!
Now, I know some of you don't like my scary fabric,
so you can win it or any of the other Halloween fabric.
Giveaway 2 half yards or maybe more...

To enter the drawing, 
just leave a comment about pirates.

  3. Love those pillowcases!! I would have been thrilled if my mom had set me those when I was at university - they would have been very popular in the dorm! My sister and her group of friends dressed as pirates for a midnight cancer charity walk-a-thon event but had to take the eye patches off though 'coz they couldn't see where they were going!!

  4. What great pillowcases - Coven works really well. Um, pirates... my dad once got me up at 5am to go watch a replica of Francis Drake's ship sailing past. The Spanish thought he was a pirate anyway. The ship was great, although much smaller than I'd expected it to be.

  9. My great-great-great grandad was a pirate. True story, (though there might be a couple more greats in there). His descendents were turf accountants (illegal bookies) but lately we've been more respectable as a family!

  10. Pirates - were dirty, and used foul language - fowl language too.

  14. Female Pirates.........did you know?

    We may never know how many female pirates roamed the seas in the XVI and XVII century. We do know that in order for a female pirate to become a successful rogue she had to disguise herself as a man. This was the case because the piratical code usually forbade women pirate members on board, and certainly precluded them – as was customary in those centuries in general - from any combat role. While such rules prevented numerous fights between male crew over female companions, they were also enforced in the case of any woman pirate crew member. Despite these oppressive circumstances, we know female pirates found success on the high seas as pirates. These women pirates were truly exceptional in their determination and character to seek out their fortunes in what was a very dangerous way of life in an exclusively male dominated occupation. It should also be mentioned that to succeed on any ship, and especially an undermanned pirate ship, women pirates had to display exceptional strength, agility and physical stamina to earn a share of the gold among the greedy pirates who would use any excuse to exclude a pirate woman crew member out of their plunder for incomplete ship work. A pirate woman needed to be an exceptional actress and needed above average intelligence in order to successfully outsmart her crafty vagabond companions as to her sex. A female pirate, though often destitute and without family or friends, nevertheless did not lack the courage or ability necessary for a piratical career that was most certainly reserved for men.

    No matter what we think about the ethical and moral side of XVI and XVII century piracy it was considered a very profitable occupation with strong romantic appeal. Many pirates plundered foreign merchant ships while legally protected by royal authority. So it should be no wonder that strong women pirates with an entrepreneurial spirit were drawn to the piratical profession. Female pirates were sometimes stronger in their determination and more courageous than many of their male pirate shipmates. Anne Bonny, an infamous pirate woman, was considered a formidable fighter and sought after for her fighting prowess during the most daring pirate attacks. Mary Reed, another female pirate, actively participated in ship boarding and hand to hand combat. Grace O’Malley, an infamous Irish pirate woman, - commanded three pirate ships all with exclusively male crews. If any of the crew members dared to object to serving under the leadership of a female pirate, they would certainly meet an early demise. With time, as with other professions during the 17th and 18th centuries, the idea of a pirate woman gained acceptance thanks to pioneering female pirate crew members.

    Although female pirates were not the first women to engage in soldiering (see Joan of Arc) women pirates were clearly proving that despite immense psychological, legal and physical obstacles they were able to lead the life they have chosen and be equal or better than their male companions. Thus, women pirates served on pirate ships, piratical code notwithstanding. Simply put, pirate women were too great an asset for a pirate crew to ignore.

  15. ARRR! Ahoy mateys. I would love to win some scary fabric. I have had a Halloween project rumbling around in my head, but I haven't taken any steps to get the fabric yet. I'd be happy to put your giveaway fabric to good use.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I never thought about pirates much until I saw "Pirates of the Caribbean" and then I just could not get Jack Sparrow off my mind. For the longest time I had a very strong urge to put dark eyeliner on my man!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Arr.Arr.. o, that scary pillow is sure so cool.. I love Sarah Jane's Out to Sea with Girl Pirate.. Cute Girl Pirate - naughty but cute.

  19. Nice give away. I don't know much about Priates but I did like the movie Prites of the Carribean.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Arrgh.... I love the scary pillowcases.....I could use one of those when I go out on my pirate ship! Pirates are far better in fantasy than the real pirates were. I have to say I enjoyed all the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The only thing I know about pirates is what Jake and the Neverland Pirates taught me, which is sure to be wrong. That is some seriously cute fabric though.

  22. If you live near the coast of NC, head to Ocracoke. They have all things Blackbeard. You can stay at Blackbeard's Lodge and then do your shopping at Teach's Hole

  28. The first Halloween costume I sewed for my daughter 5 years ago was a pirate! It was so cute. I even did the gathering on the sleeves, which was a real mystery to me because I only learned to sew that year. It probably took 30 hours for the cutting and sewing! I passed it down to family friends, but kind of wished I kept it, but then again I try not to be too much of a pack rat:)

    ReplyDelete
  29. LOVE it! My son & his new bride get an entire quilt made out of this lovely fabric....they don't know yet! Pirates.....uh.....I think Jonny Depp is darling! Thanks, Corrie!

  31. I think my little man is going to be a pirate for Halloween this year.

  32. I think Johnny Depp was fantastic as the pirate in Pirates of the Carribean. They couldn't have chosen anyone else to play that part in that movie! He is such a good actor!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Johnny Depp came to our little town to film Public Enemies, but we like him best as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean.

  35. Pirates...a scurvy lot at best?

    ReplyDelete
  36. OMG! I am making my daughter a Nighshade quilt and didn't want to cut into the fabric with the girls' faces. I am going to have to make her pillow cases to match the quilt! I think even a pirate would like that idea.

    ReplyDelete
  37. My college age grand daughter also gets Halloween themed surprises. My marine grandson still has to explain the quilt of skulls with dancing eyes to others. Jean Lafite helped keep New Orleans as part of US so Hip hip hooray for pirates!

  38. What do pirates use to travel on land?
    C ARGH!!!

  41. I don't have grandchildren...yet.... but do have grand-pugs, named Edward and Boo. Edward was adopted in Europe while they were living in Germany, so his halloween costume is his German Fest costume. Boo is a rescue dog from Oklahoma and his costume, so my daughter tells me, is a pirate. Does this count? haha

    ReplyDelete
  42. Pirates make me think of 2 things- the movie Pirates of the Caribbean and It's a Small World at Disneyland. I remember the ride with a huge ship and lots of pirates! It was really neat! That was years ago so I'm not even sure they have that anymore. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  43. My first impressions of pirates are from Peter Pan by Disney. Although, I love Pirates of the Caribbean and how Jack was portrayed.

  44. Question: Why does it take pirates so long to learn the alphabet?
    Answer: Because they can spend years at C!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Those pillowcases are so cute – and I looove that you send them to your daughter and her roomie! :)

    As to pirates, my daughter loves to play Peter Pan and Captain Hook. Just yesterday she sent Captain Hook (her stuffed doggie) sailing off the back of the armchair into the jaws of the crocodile. But no worries, he'll be back again to chase Peter Pan today or tomorrow! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Pirates make me think of Peter Pan. And also The Pirates of Penzance. I love musicals!

  51. Once, while clothes shopping with a guy friend, who rolled his eyes at every girly item I picked out, suddenly exclaimed (upon seeing a red & white stripe shirt I was holding up at the time), "OOOH, get THAT one! I like that one!" Pleased that one of my picks finally met with his approval, I said, "Really?!"

    To which he replied, "Yeah, that shirt is cool - you'll look like a PIRATE!" I could see two strangers laughing an aisle over at that. That's what comes to mind when someone says "pirate" now.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love reading fictional Christian books of pirates and ships and romance. My favorite author of these (sometimes women) pirate books is: M.L. Tyndall.

    i like my pirates funny and/or touching, like jack sparrow (hi-larious johnny depp!) or in hook with dustin hoffman.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Pirates scare me. Not faux pirates, but the real thing when you are sailing in some remote part of the world and real pirates come at you with cigarette boats and you have no chance to escape. That kind of pirates. Yikes. Every time I read a story about real pirates I shudder. Argh!

  100. I have just recently come across this song:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GI6CfKcMhjY

    Featuring lyrics about Pirates of the Caribbean. Perhaps a not-safe-for-work video, as there is some coarse language. But it makes me laugh every time I think of it. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Ha!!!! I love that...just leave a message about pirates. Well in theory I find them mysterious and kind of sexy, but when I think about them in practice I remember they are kind of evil and have really bad breath :(
    And really, ninjas > pirates anyway.

  104. My daughter is a first-year teacher (4th grade) and is using pirates as the theme in her classroom. She has pirate-print pillows, a pirate cove corner, pictures of the whole "crew" on the wall, and a shark tent for reading. I think her kids are liking it. For rewards they get to get a piece of candy out of the treasure chest.

    ReplyDelete
  105. My baby sister made the cutest pirate one Halloween in her homemade costume. She had coal black hair and a face perfect for drawing upon. At age 5 I met pirates face-to-face when they came on ships into Tampa during the state fair.

  142. I'm totally not a big fan of pirates, but I have to say Johnny Depp is the BEST looking pirate I've ever seen ;)

  144. The men downed their tools for a rest,
    'twas then that the captain confessed:
    "I see it, I fear
    why we found nothing here -
    we should have gone ten paces WEST!"

  154. For a long time I thought my grandpa owned the Pittsburgh Pirates. Does that count? I learned at an early, early age when he was asleep on the couch not to disturb him when he was "listening" to his Pirates on the radio. I thought he was asleep because he was snoring. Oh, my gosh! He sure would come up off that couch and threaten to strap me. He was listening to the ballgame! That was sacred! Our family took a trip to Pittsburgh. I thought all the kids and Dad and Pa Jack were going to the Pirates game. I was hearbroken. I had to go shopping with Mom and her mom. I was just sick. I was a Daddy's girl and I wanted to go to the Pirates' game. My first job out of college, I worked for a company based in Pittsburgh. The trainees stainoned around the country were all in Pittsburgh for training and we went to a Pirates/Cub double header. That's the only major league game I've ever attended. So, I got to see the Pirates play after all.

    1. International "Talk like a Pirate Day" (September 19th) happens to fall on my birthday! Unfortunately, I forgot to tell my students about it this year (the pirate part, I avoid telling people about my birthday) so I will have to make a note to celebrate it with my classes next year. (Nothing like 100 12 and 13 year olds talking like pirates - and I'm sure I could scare up some math problems to go with the theme)
