Mr. Yazoo has a dadcat crazy shirt that he looooooves — he’s seriously worn it almost every weekend since Cosmo was born.
It’s getting just a leetle stanky after four years, and since I haven’t been able to find a new one to buy him, my sister (the artist) helped me make him a dadcat pillowcase!
She drew a version with three kitties (for our three kids), and then I blew it up and thread sketched it onto Essex linen. I didn’t stabilize the linen with anything, though, so it came out pretty wrinkly. Good thing Mr. Yazoo’s not too picky about things like that!
After I gave Mr. Yazoo his pillowcase, I felt like doing some commerce, so we went down to SlumberWorld so he could pick out a new pillow. That was some fun shopping, but I quietly had a heart attack when I realized that his pillow cost a hundred eighty dollars. gahhhhhhhhh…
Then, to add insult to injury, the (standard length) pillowcase I had made was too short for Mr. Yazoo’s new queen-sized pillow, so I had to unpick it and sew on the extra dark blue bit at the end. That took me an hour, which I laughed and laughed about the next day when I watched that episode of Project Runway where the designers on the bottom remade their entire dresses in an hour. >_<
