Last week Mr Kitty was away on another business trip. He was only gone for a couple of days, as usual. Also as usual, those days were fairly uneventful for me, except for one night when the cat decided to hunt something in my room, in the middle of the night. That something turned out to be… a butt plug. In fact, it was a butt plug whose existence I’d completely forgotten about. It barely registered on my pre-coffee hazy mind. It was only on the drive to work that I realised the ridiculousness of the situation. Thank God I don’t have children!
The weirdest thing isn’t even that my cat was trying to hunt an inanimate object while I tried to sleep, but that my first thought was: “this reminds me of something…”. Yup, it reminded me of this post. It turns out that things are funnier when they happen to other people.
Mr Kitty came back from his trip in a really terrible mood. I was at work when he got home, so I didn’t realise how cranky he was. These things aren’t conveyed all that well through texts. By the time I got home, he was looking like a depressed little version of himself. He told me he wasn’t feeling well and decided to try and sleep it off. He got worse over the next few days. It was nothing serious, thankfully, but he was feeling bad enough that my only instinct was to look after him as best as I could. So I spent my weekend attempting to make him tasty food that he might actually eat, being around when he needed me, and generally trying to be a good girlfriend. The cage was off; it still is. He’ll be back in it when we both feel like he’s ready.
Since going out wasn’t much of an option, I decided to finally make him the skirt that I considered making ages ago. I like it when he does his household chores naked, wearing a pink skirt. The one he’s been using so far was an impulse purchase he made, which I ended up liking more than expected. I wanted to give him something more special, maybe a little girlier, so I thought a tulle skirt was the most appropriate direction.
This isn’t a sewing blog, but in case anyone is interested, my method for this type of skirt is essentially the same as the one in this tutorial.
I used 6 or 7 metres of tulle: 5 of pink tulle, and a bit of white tulle that I happened to have lying around.
Gathering it all was a bit tedious, but the white tulle gave it a lovely multi-tonal effect.
Since my kittyslave has the most sensitive skin ever, I used this gorgeous, über soft pink satin for the lining.
This is the finished result. For such a quick (impromptu!) project, I’m quite happy with it. According to Mr Kitty, the soft lining makes it very comfortable. I’ll be so happy when I see him doing his chores again, looking like a pretty princess!
