This little blog 'experiment' that I thought might last a month or two is getting bigger and bigger. I had to make a Pinterest board for the 'Solved Un-Tutorials' because now people are emailing me asking where to find them, lol! Who knows how many we will solve? So from now on, you can find all of the 'Solved Un-Tutorials' here.
It's UnTutorial time again! Un-Tutorials are those sneaky pins that lead you to believe there's a tutorial behind them - and then there's not. Or maybe there's a bunch of pictures with no real instructions that you can understand. Those kinds of pins are so common that I gave them a name and started a Pinterest board.
And now it's time for YOU to vote for the Un-Tutorial that I'll solve (aka write a new tutorial for) this month!
These felt animal ornaments are so sweet! The pin that Rosiegma added to our untutorial pinboard leads nowhere, and my image search didn't turn up anything either. Still, I don't want to copy someone else's work. So if this untutorial wins the vote, I will let these inspire me to design a few felt animal ornaments of my own. They would look perfect on my Christmas tree this year!
Here's another photo-tutorial that begs to be made into a real sewing tutorial. The vague instructions say to insert plastic. If this untutorial won, I'd experiment with different materials to see which one worked best. :)
You know I can't resist patchwork! I call this the Sweetheart Pouch. It has a beautiful patchwork heart peeking out from the flap. I think I'd add a zipper to the interior so the flap wouldn't be the only thing keeping it closed. How big should it be? Hmmmm... tell me if it wins!
Remember... you only have a week to vote! Whatever project wins, I'll be sewing my own knock-off version and then giving you a tutorial the week after that. So vote below for the project that you'd like to see me sew!
Next Wednesday voting will close and I'll announce the winner. Then I'll get started sewing it up. On the 3rd Wednesday this month I'll share pictures of our finished project and soon after that I'll share a tutorial of my version.
P.S.... Lots of people will assume I picked these projects because I couldn't find another tutorial for them. They will send me links to similar tutorials. Before you do that, read my opinion on the subject:
1. You will probably find similar tutorials online to the ones I am suggesting.
2. I'm writing this blog series mostly to have fun with my readers and to find out what they want me to write next - not really to write a tutorial for something that hasn't been written before.
3. I love to see how different bloggers put their own spin on easy projects.
I hope you do too and you decide to keep reading!
