Hi everyone, I have a big question today, and your answers will really help me decide how I present my “How To Sew” series in the next month or so.
For sewing instruction, do you prefer using a video tutorial, or a regular written tutorial with pictures?
I was chatting with Jessica from Me Sew Crazy the other day about how I should go about sharing all the information in making a tutorial for my Keyhole dress, when she suggested videos. (She’s just so sweet and brilliant!) After thinking about it for a bit, it really made sense. Most creative people are visual learners, and our blogs are usually half pictures anyway.
So, I took the shirred skirt tutorial from Friday and remade it in video form (making the top below instead of a skirt). Now you guys can take a look at both versions and let me know which you think would be easier to follow/understand.
***Disclaimer – This is my first video and I know it isn’t the best quality. The lighting is, in a word, crap and I also feel that 20 min. is way too long. But, those are things that I can work on for next time. Most of my videos would be 5 min. or less. This is also on my family account because it was so long, but I’d make a channel specific to my blog.***
So what do you think? Is it easier to follow along when you can pause and rewind? Any thoughts you have on the subject would be a great help! I really want this up coming series to be helpful for anyone new to sewing, or learning a new technique.
Thanks in advance for your help, and thanks for visiting!
