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. 


Cut each stripe for the piping.
Then place stripe fabric on eachother making an L. 


Sew a diagonal line on the stripe.



Now stretch out strip it should become a straight. 


Cut excess fabric off and iron flat.





After all pieces are sewn together, fold rope into fabric. Using a zipper foot, sew and close to the rope as possible.





Measure pillow desired size, cut out 2 same size. Cut 1 pillow piece in half width side. 
Fold in a half inch of fabric width side, iron and sew down.



Place piping on front of fabric making sure the actual piping itself faces inward.
Sew piping on the front pillow.
Cut corners to sew curves easy..



After sewing piping on front, place bottom 2 pieces on pillow faces eachother. Sew around pillow making sure you stay as close the the piping as possible.


Turn pillows inside out and you're done.








Up close pics..


They match perfectly with the girls room.


It looks perfect with the wall.

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

 I know it looks a little gross but believe me, the outcome is delicious!  Put Meat, Cubes,  Seasoning, Kitchen Bouquet in a big pot, let it simmer for about 5 minutes or until the beef is browned. 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.

I didn't know that this dress was inspired by Pippa Middleton's Bridesmaid Gown.
Upon my research, it's the exact dress...



Well alright, Mrs. Middleton!!

I want to teach myself how to design and make gowns. First, I want to dip my toe into gowns patterns and baby steps into different fabrics.
