Fall Into Fashion... Maternity Style..


Hey Everyone!
Now that the weather is finally changing in Dallas.
It's time to start sewing for Fall and Winter. I'm really enjoying the cool nights with our window open and feeling the nights breeze. That got me to thinking, dresses I don't have any long sleeves dresses.
I picked up 2 yards of this medium weight gray knit from, you guessed it Wally World for $5.47 a yard. I also have a swing jacket and dress I made last year from this material.





I made these 2 years ago and still have yet to wear the dress, but I promise this year she will be worn.
Just click the link and it will take you directly to the garments.







I didn't use a pattern.
 I simply traced a dress I loved.





Then I used a sleeve for the McCall's 6797 pattern for the sleeves.


Sides all sewn up of the dress and added the sleeves.




I also used the neckband from the same McCall's 6797.
It came out great..
Perfection!!!




View of the side sleeve..


Another view of side sleeve.




It took about an hour and a half from start to finish. I didn't rush on this project and I even reinforced the sides due to my growing belly. 
Excuse the awkwardness of the belly.
I tried, LOL..





Another awkward moment..
It's too low, need to lift it up..



That's a little better.
This is how I'll be wearing the dress.


Another view!!

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

Add the 3-4 quarts of water and half bottles of Worcestershire and Soy sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and let cook about 2-3 hours or until beef is tender enough to fall apart.

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.
I looked into my stash at home and found these 2 quarter yard yellow fabric squares, plus the rope from Dollar Tree. 



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.
