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.
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.
I don't know what it's like where you live, but here in Florida the weather is so hot I can hardly stand to do anything but stay inside and sew! Okay, I love to sew no matter what the weather is like. When I was looking for untutorials for you to choose from this month, I picked three summer projects that are perfect for avoiding the summer heat - or anything else you want to avoid. :)
Remember, my intention is not to harm or take away from the original designer of these items at all. I hope I am helping them by showing you their pins. But we all know that different people can show how to make things in different ways, and hopefully my version might inspire you to sew something new!
Make sure you scroll to the bottom because I want YOU to vote for the Un-Tutorial that I'll solve (aka write a new tutorial for) this month! Note: click the photos to see the original pins.
I've been wanting to figure this pin out for ages. Is it really as easy as that loooong pin makes it look? Well, vote for it! If it wins I'll give it a go and let you know how I would teach someone to make it.
So what will it be???
Remember... you only have a week to vote! Whatever project wins, I'll be sewing my own 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 might 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!
