So I’m starting a new thing! Every Tuesday I will be posting a new workout tutorial video on my YouTube channel. I have also decided to share these videos with you here on IG! This week we are working on your Lats aka that stubborn upper back spot. Let’s tone it up! Make sure to not lock out your elbows and keep your arms as straight as possible as you go back behind your head! Be sure to relax the tension in your neck and shoulders and keep the focus on your back. Try 10-15 reps and do 2-3 sets Let me know if you have any questions! What body part do you want to work on next week? #tutorialtuesday
Hey everyone! A little late night tutorial posting for tutorial Tuesday! Today’s tutorial will be a little shorter, but hopefully very helpful. We’ll be talking about finding sewing patterns for cosplay! There are a few big name commercial pattern companies which have several pattern options you can use for sewing. The main three are Simplicity, McCall’s, and Vogue. Simplicity and Mccall’s have some smaller pattern names underneath their main branch, such as new look and butterick. The main thing you need to know as a cosplayer is look in the costume pattern section. Costume patterns are sold year round, and usually have some very basic and more complex patterns. Sometimes there are even officially licensed patterns which have the exact character you want. McCall’s even has a cosplay by McCall’s section, and Yaya Han has her sewing patterns through the company as well. If you can’t find what you’re looking for in the costume section, look in the regular clothing section. Usually when we look for patterns, we look for similar fit and style so that the pattern can easily be altered. Hem lengths are the easiest part to alter for any pattern, so look at the line art and compare the actual seam lines and necklines to find a pattern you can manipulate. For several of our costumes we simply used basic clothing patterns and altered them to make a costume pattern. If you’re a beginner, look for its sew easy or beginner sewing patterns you can use to turn into costume pieces since the instructions and pattern pieces are simplified to make for fast and simple construction. If in the event you absolutely can’t find what you’re looking for, you can always attempt to drape on your dress form with some scrap fabric to make a pattern. YouTube has some great instructional videos out there on draping! Like if this was helpful Comment with some patterns you’ve used as costume patterns! #tutorial#tutorialtuesday#tuesday#sewing#patterns#cosplay
🍌How To Save Overripe Bananas🍌 If your bananas are browning, freeze them to extend their usage! The easiest way to save them for future use is by peeling the bananas, slicing or mashing them into your desired consistency, and then freezing them. To ensure your bananas don’t stick together, lay them flat on a cookie sheet to freeze for 20 minutes. After, move them into a bag or container to keep in your freezer for later.⠀ .⠀ This method is handy when making smoothies, banana “nice cream,” oatmeal or overnight oats, and even baked goods!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ 📷: @theharvestkitchn #howtotuesday#lcnhowtotuesday#tutorialtuesday#kitchenhacks#bananas#nicecream#kitchentips#foodforfuel
Repost @asolocab - “I may be good, but I’m not nice.” #endeavor#myheroacademia#projectliterallyhotdaddy#plusultr4 📷@sixthsensephoto taken at @yeticon.official #tutorialtuesday! The most popular way to make bracers is to do the duct tape method. For Endeavor, it’s a bit more of a truncated cone rather than a sleek shape. As an engineer myself, I can’t help but make sure everything’s measured with the right numbers though. I used templatemaker.nl/en/cone/ where you can set the top and bottom diameter, plus the height. It produces a printable template which makes it a lot easier if you have to make multiple copies of it. This also works for a lot more than bracers. Cup noodle helmet, anyone?
#tutorialtuesday . . How to cook frozen “jiaozi” (dumplings/potstickers)! . . We will readily admit that we are Chinese food snobs. We have yet to find the "real deal" in America and we especially miss homemade jiaozi! We ate it literally every day when we were in China last year bringing our son home! . . Yes, we technically can make these from scratch...but #traderjoes makes them almost as tasty and it's a lot less work! Usually in China you order jiaozi either boiled or fried. However, the boiled ones usually fall apart, but the fried ones can be a little too crunchy. We learned the half-boiled, half-fried trick from our friend in China, so that you get a perfect jiaozi every time! . . 1. Purchase frozen jiaozi (We like Trader Joe's the best, but you can find them in many grocery stores!) . 2. Coat the bottom of the wok with oil (any high-heat oil will do) and arrange the jiaozi. . 3. Pour water on the top carefully until it almost covers the jiaozi. Turn the heat on HIGH. . 4. Once the water boils out, your jiaozi should be finished cooking! Use a spatula to lift the jiaozi carefully and enjoy! . We recommend dipping jiaozi in soy sauce with fresh garlic! You can also add some Chinese spicy garlic sauce or Chinese dark vinegar (found in Asian grocery stores) for an added pop of flavor to your dipping bowl! . . It can definitely be intimidating to adopt a child from another culture and try to preserve pieces of your child's birth country for him or her. But there's so many resources today that help you bring China into your home in an easy way! Here's a simple recipe to enjoy with your family, whether you're an adoptive family or not! We biasedly think that Chinese food is the best cuisine in the world and hope you enjoy a taste of it too! . . We'd love for you to partner with us in bringing our next #haobaobao ("precious child" in Chinese) home! Please check out our coffee at haobaobaocoffee.com and we'd love to share our freshly micro-roasted beans with
