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 adorable owls come from one of those 'Photo-tutorials.' I would love to make them, but I'm sure I'd have to draft a pattern because there isn't one that you can download. If (by chance) these photos were lifted from another blog and you know where they came from, please let me know.
But they are so sweet and fall-ish that I do hope you'll vote for them. We could fill them with beans to make a doorstop or poly-fil to make a lightweight decoration. Imagine them in Christmas fabrics... so cute!
Or are you in the mood for a tote? This bag with lots of pockets looks especially fun to carry. And I was just thinking that I need a new purse. I can totally see it sewn up in fresh modern fabrics too.
On the other hand, the holidays are fast approaching and maybe a quick and easy applique quilt is what we need. I LOVE how cute this one is. If you want to order one from someone else, check out the original pin. If you want to see how to make your own, vote for it!
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 on the 4th Wednesday 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!
