It's Back, Episode 4 Project Runway Review..

Hey Everyone!!!
I was soo wrong when I thought you all weren't interested in my views of this season's Project Runway. I'm sorry about that, it won't ever ever happen again. It goes to show me, if your not leaving comments doesn't mean your not looking.. My Sincerest Apologies!

REVIEW  Fashion Flip

Episode starts with everyone sitting in their rooms talking about what happen on the last episode. Amanda's still not understanding what the judges want, just like all of us are being totally confused with the judges and their horrible decisions.. All Shade!!! 
It's the MARY KAY Challenge. Tim introduces us to Global  Mary Kay Makeup Artist Luis Casco and talks about Iconic Designs such as the pencil skirt, the wrap dress and the trench coat just to name a few.  The designers had to take the Iconic Designs, modernize and bring their own interpretations to it.

My Over-sized Structured Hobo Bag Tutorial

Hey Everyone! I posted this Structure Hobo Bag on my FB Sewing groups pages and told you all that I would be posting the tutorial up this afternoon.. Well without any further adieu..
Here it is...
First let me tell you how she came about.. I was looking through Etsy and came across a similar hobo bag but alot less structured and it had me thinking that if I had enough faux leather to make another, yes another bag.. I love bags, I will never ever have enough of bags in my arsenal
Important! Another thing, I make these tutorials solely for myself, not for profit or gain.  When I make these tutorials and give your the videos in which I use please, please don't take these tutorials and try to sale them as your own. OK! Now after that Public Service Announcement..  Make sure you READ this tutorial all the way through for my tips to make a better bag for yourself.
Let get it on... I haven't named her yet, but that doesn't mean that I love any less than the others,  LOL!

Jil Sander Inspired Lunch Bag.... Soo Easy!!

Hey Everyone!!!  I'm back again with another "Inspired" Jil Sander Lunch Bag.  Well you all probably can guess that I have a bag, purse, clutch addiction.  I love bags, I have a whole closet in my home dictated to accessories.
I've had my eye on this bag for sometime now to recreate, but didn't have a chance until now.  I seriously don't know why I waited because it was the easiest, out of all of my bags I've made.  5 easy pieces is all you need.

No More Project Runway Review..

Hi Everyone!  I'm here to let you know that I'm discontinuing the Project Runway Review Weekly Blog.. Due to the low volume of looks. I decided not to put my energy in it.  Plus, if you have the internet you can see it the next day. LOL! 
If you'd like me to start back reviewing, please comment below.  I may bring it back.. 
I just want to leave you with this one thing..
Blake and Kelly were ROBBED!
"My" Best Garment of the week and winner was this. You can't tell me that they weren't the Winner. This jumpsuit was Beautiful, Elegant, and made a Hell of a Statement and will be recreated my moi!
I just don't understand how this wasn't at least one of the top looks.
Blake and Kelly Greek Isle Inspired Look was every bit of Grecian Goddess.

Actual Winner. No Shade Yes! Shade  Ashley and Candice made a Fabulous Venetian Inspired Look but I was pissed because of the fit of the pant and every bit of  Kelly and Blake was perfection. 


I just don't under…

DIY Faux Leather Tote Bag

Hey Everyone! I'm back again with another DIY for you all. I don't know what it is but I'm really starting to love making handbags, clutches, and totes. I guess it's the faux leather that's inspiring me. 
Well this time, it's an easy Faux Leather Tote To Go! It took about 2 hours to from start to finish.

This will definitely be my everyday purse when the girls school starts and running errands.
 The faux leather was purchased on fabric.com for $7 a yard.  I only purchased a yard but received almost 2 yards.  Thanks Fabric.com.. 
 Looking at YT, again and I saw the cutest leather tote that I had to make. First, I made a mini purse, just to see if I could so it. Then I decided to make the larger version. It came out perfect..  My hubby even thought it was a new purse and didn't believe I made it. He inspected it as many Arabs do and I just laughed. He said. babe it's really nice.
PROUD MOMENT!!!!
