McCall's 6797 Maternity Style..

Hey Everyone!
I'm back again this week with a sewing project I just finished last night. Some of you may know that I'm expecting at 43 years of age and now I'm in need of maternity clothes. Most of the maternity clothes out there aren't too cute or flattening at all to the beautiful growing belly of an expecting woman. Thinking and trying to find something cute to wear to work and out and about, I had to dig into my patterns and find some "maternity-type" clothes I can couture to my body. 

Well, first up was easy, I'm making about 10 of these shirts because they are too cute.
This isn't my first time making it and knew when I dug my older sweater out, I had to go out and buy  fabric to make more. 

I went with a black and white striped medium weight knit, purchased from my favorite Wally World at $3.47 per yard. I cut it diagonal to give it a little dimension and to accentuate my growing body. 



It took about a hour and a half from start to finish.

I really recommend this top for non-maternity and maternity, you'll love the fit.


I hope you've enjoy this project as much as I did.

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.
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.
