Pillowcase Drive

*Caution this post may contain pirate phrases*

Ahoy me Hearties! (Hello friends)

Blimey! (Exhortation of surprise) ... I've just sewn something that's not pink!

These were made with lovely fabrics from Sarah Jane's 'Out to Sea' range,  I was lucky enough to hornswaggle (obtained for a steal) a few FQ's recently during the #greataussiedetash on Instagram and could.not.wait to turn them into the pillowcases that they are now!

Sarah Jane "Out To Sea"

Secret loot (treasure) can be hidden in the pockets on the front left hand side of the pillowcase.

 I purchased some pirate shaped bath mitts from Spotlight after failing miserably at making a simple pirate 'softie'.  Long story, but let's just say I suck at drawing faces.

Pirate Bath Mitts - Spotlight purchase
These Pirate Pillowcases have been made for the 2014 Handmade Cooperative 'Oncology Kids' Pillowcase Drive.

Make them, send them, put a smile on a little lad or lass's boat (face ... boat-race-face ... cockney slang ...savvy?).

These pillowcases are my first finish for Q1 - 2014 Finish Along and I'm feeling topgallant! (very good).

Time to go and ship this loot!
