Happy Easter everyone!! My sky was blue today, how bout yours?
Let's talk about my outfit,... my husband said.. total cost of my outfit is 1.60 euros! The black tube dress cost me 50 cents, the shoes 50 cents (new-ish), the belt was 60 cents,.. coz I didn't have 50 so I gave the trader 60 cents...lol
I bought them in "el corte ingles", the second hand market.
The vest and the wrist cuff, I made them...
I had my hair swept to one side, as if I follow the trend so much... the truth is I just wash my hair so it was a bit messy un-flattering.
Don't ya feel like having a slice of this plumpy  bread?
I actually feel bad about posting food, coz I ain't a good cook, I admit my limitation in that departement... lol
Just want to show you how I bake the bread with the steamer... another way to bake cake or bread without the oven...

When you have all the time in the world,... sewing mood and fabric scraps... oh yes,, I'd like to decorate my wrist ...
Soooo super easy to make, you won't need any tutorial for this.
here's what I did :
  • Measure your wrist, add 2cm for seam allowance (that would be 1 cm allow. each side), add 2cm for overlap (where you sew the velcro)
  • determine the width, I like it large... so mine is 5cm. Add 2cm for seam allowance.
  • draw the rectangular based on your measurement
  • cut two rectangular
  • sew them together, right side facing each other... leave 2cm open for turning.
  • turn it inside-out, poke the corner, flaten it, press/iron
  • sew the un-sewn part
  • topstitch with decorative thread, I did free motion quilt with yellowish jeans thread
  • attach the velcro
  • at this point you can be imaginative to decorate your cuff, I hand sewn wooden beads left over from someplace about to get into the garbage bin.
it's me...me...meeee!!!
Our beloved Kristinaaaaa!!

Honestly, we didn't use the same pattern... but our project turned out to be similar to each other.... hahaha... I have no idea myself??!!
Anyway, allow me to compliment Kristina's jacket... very good looking! The photo aswell outstanding.... ck...ck.... really look professional, don't y think?!

and.. about my jacket...errrr... I love it coz I always wanted to have funky jacket- head turning- invite people to commenting such : look at that girl with weird jacket, so out of place.... lol

oh, well... well...... thanks again Kristina... you always made my day ;p
Kristina and I.. we both crazy about that program, Project Runway (Hosted by Heide Klum).... so we try to create one garment inspired by some picture. Kristina kindly chose 3 pictures for me to pick. I chose this one, coz the dark blue-ish color reminds me of denim color...
That's how our project were born. We are going to make something with denim as a main material. We either making Jacket or Pants coz we are off with dress this time, beside... we need to make something that is hard work, tricky and a bit complicated  ^^
Kristina chose to make denim JACKET!! so we go for jacket coz for one girl, one denim jacket wouldn't be enough...
The making of this particular jacket was quite challenging coz I drafted the pattern myself... I didn't expect it will turned out ok... my ..my I must have been lucky these days ^^
I slept with the issue in my head on how to draft the pattern, hahaha...coz this is no trial, I couldn't afford to make an error... I only have 2 meters of denim fabric and some other denim left over pieces. I told Kristina already about my situation on un-able to access fabric shop at the moment... and she's very accomodating. Thanks Kristina ;p
It was very windy when I took the picture. My hair was all nice until the wind messed them .... I forgot to show you the features of this jacket. The jacket has front zippered pocket to keep small things like money or mobile.
The sleeves has opening zipper at the bottom...
You can't see from the pictures but it has two lapels at one side... actually, no use of those lapels, next time I'll skip them.
The legendary Paella made by Mr. G and Ms. Mei Mei, our acquaintances. This is the second times we had Paella at their house. Their Paella is outstanding! If you want to know the tips and trick on how to make it then you ask them directly, ok ^^
Yang item itu dari ketan item, nah yg rengginang itu buatan our beloved Ms.Mei Mei yg kehandalannya di dapur uda legendaris ^^
Halo kerupuk lovers, kemaren ga sengaja beli ketan item... karena ga kemakan semua,... jadilah sisanya dibuat kerupuk.
Buatku rasanya ga terlalu nendang, habis kebanyakan air lagi tuh...tapi mas Gun sukaaaa... karna krupuknya tipis dan crunchy. Aku lebih prefer ketan putih depada item...
Sekarang aku bikin krupuk ga pake resep, main hajar aja... kalo ke enceran ditambahin tapioka. Itu kemaren ga pake Tapioka tapi jadi juga... mana kebanyakan ngasi garem lagi....hehehe
