This week I decided to sew a hair ribbon since I still have excess from fabric from sewing my drawstring bag from last week. I followed a tutorial, called DIY Hair Bow | Sewing, on Youtube. After a few weeks of following video tutorial, I’ve picked up on three tips on how to follow tutorial videos more easily.
- Go to settings and click the playback speed to watch the video in slow motion. It is easier to see small details that the instructions do not state explicitly.
- Rewatch the video in smaller segments. Take it one step a step.
- It’s ok not to follow the exact instructions. You might find a more efficient way.
I found that playing this tutorial at 0.75 speed really help with seeing the step by step process. Many tutorial videos do not directly state “this is step 1” or “next is step 2.” There are many times where you as the audience have to deconstruct the video into steps in order to follow the tutorial.
This is a picture of the before and after product. It’s amazing how a person can take a piece of cloth and create a whole new object.
