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.
This month I tried to search for unique sewing projects that we don't already have online tutorials for. But even if you have seen a similar tutorial, wouldn't you like to see my version?
So now it's time for YOU to vote for the Un-Tutorial that I'll solve (aka write a new tutorial for) this month!
This cute lunch tote has an interesting shape that I haven't seen before. And it looks like it would hold a good amount of lunch! If I make it, I'll probably include Insulbright interfacing to help it keep food warm or cold.
I know you guys aren't afraid of zippers... quite the opposite - you ask for them!
A hanging shelf is just what my closet needs! Except I'd be putting shoes on the shelves instead of books. Or maybe I would make the shelves wider so I can stack my sweaters on them.
I would probably put snaps at the top of the shelf so regular hangers could be used.
Can you guess what this is? It's the cutest travel pillow I've ever seen!
I hope you vote for this guy - he's my favorite! :)
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!
