You are currently viewing SWEATER KNIT TUNIC + SEW-ALONG VIDEO


Well, well, well! The day has finally come! I recorded my very first Sew-Along Video – ALL BY MYSELF!!! This is a BIG deal! My husband created beautiful videos for my YouTube channel and I knew very little about using the cameras. I always heard him say words like; “Depth of Field, ISO, Aperture Value, F-Stop, and such. I learned what these words meant, but had no idea how to set the camera for all these to work together in creating a quality video.

It’s another Simplicity 8738!

Then I decided to take the advice from every YouTube video I’ve watched, and that which a couple of friends have given me. I started practicing. Oh My Goodness! What in the world was I thinking? I know! I was thinking that I’ll never be able to create videos like my husband, so I procrastinated.

A mindset shift had to take place and it only happened after I took one step to apply myself to the learning I was receiving. As I began to practice, things started falling into place and making more sense.

My photos are getting better too!

I still have a lot to learn, but I BELIEVE now! I believe I can do this and do it well. I’m gonna brag and say, “I did a GREAT job for my first try.” It took forever and there were obstacles I had to overcome, but I kept going. Even when I broke my card reader in the middle of recording, I didn’t give up. I took myself to the store, purchased another one and got back to work. I’m pretty sure I created some new positions with the tripod, never before attempted. Hahaha!!!

Learn to sew this sweater tunic!

Without further ado, I give you my first Sew-Along Video, How to Sew A Sweater Knit Tunic + 7 Tips for Sewing with Knits. Click on photo.
