Sew-Back-Thursday's

Hi Everyone!!!
I know today is Thursday, Throw Back Thursday that is..
I've officially claimed it as Sew-Back Thursday..

Here's a few pictures of garments that I've sewn in 2012. This is the time when I really started showing my work and feeling good about it.
I have certainly come a long way baby..
LOL!


I purchased this fabric from Walmart and loved it soo much.
I used a Dana Buchman's shirt to trace, mind you, I didn't know how to read patterns or have a dress form.



I was soo happy with my dress form my hubby bought me. I started teaching myself how to read patterns. I was on YT all day and night..

I love this skirt soo much, she looks fabulous on me too.
Sad, I have yet to wear my skirt anywhere.
Walmart Fabric

I made this beautiful lady for my mother for Mardi Gras.
She loved it. I think I'm want to make her another for next year..
Walmart Fabric


Another Walmart great find.
This was a maxi skirt but being that I'm short, I looked crazy as hell in it.
So I repurposed it and made this lovely creature.
Only wore it once.

LOL!!


My first wrap dress ever made..
I couldn't wear it but inside because my "girls" wouldn't stay inside.
I didn't measure enough for the 34F's..
I used her as a robe, fabric from fabric.com..

I made this for my girlfriend and she hated it. I thought she looked great it. 
So I kept it for myself. I love it on too, but have yet to wear it..

As I look as the picture I see alot of flaws, so I understood completely..



Thanks for going down memory lane with me..

Until Next Time..

New Orleans Style Homemade Yaka-Mein!!
If you're not form New Orleans, then you probably will not know what this is. But if you do, then here's the recipe for "Yaka-Meat". Yaka-Meat originated http://www.noladefender.com/content/bowl-mystery. Link above to make a long story short..  
Ingredients below:

2 pounds of stew meat beef 3 or 4 quarts of water 2 cubes of beef bouillon cubes Black Pepper to taste Salt to taste Garlic Powder to taste Onion Powder to taste Kitchen Bouquet 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce Half Bottle Soy Sauce Half Bottle Any Louisiana Hot Sauce Long Green Onions Boiled Eggs

Girls Bedroom Series: Part 3 DIY Pillows..

Hey Everyone!!! I'm back with another post on my girls bedroom design. Well, my husband and I frequently go to Wally World and browsing through the fabric section. On this day particular day I walk right passed it then turned my head to the right and in a split second. Like a child a running across the street without o any guidance. I was hit by this fabric. I was soo overjoyed, I couldn't stop talking to the lady who cut my fabric. She just smiled and nodded, she was probably thinking I was some crazy person.  I DID NOT CARE!!!! 😁😁

She $7 a yard and I only bought one. If it was $30 a yard I would bought it too.. I wanted this material. It actually a home decor fabric just what I needed.

Step one: Measure your rope by putting the fabric around it. I measured 3 inches..



Fold fabric the inches you measured then iron flat for a good cress.
