Challenge for the Week of April 8: Share a Tutorial!

It is so much fun to learn something new.  And it is just as rewarding to teach others what YOU have learned. Most of my crafting, decorating, cooking and painting ideas and efforts have been taken from what others have already done; when the person has explained the process so others might take advantage of that knowledge it is even more fun.

The Challenge that Inspiration Avenue is presenting you this week is to share a video, or any "How-To-Do-It" method as it relates to just about any creative effort.  One of my favorite sites on the web is How TO Do Things (just about any and every thing is covered there with clear directions).  Also eHow is a good resource.  Any and all tutorials are welcome.

Here are a few tutorials to put the Challenge wheels in action: Grosgrain Ribbon Tutorial on Vimeo by Jasmin and Gigi of the KnitmoreGirls:

Visual Featurette- Grosgrain Ribbon Tutorial

This tutorial shows how to make a watercolor chart.  Ian McKendrick did it so well!


Have you ever tried to paint on silk?  Betty the Wood Fairy shows a tutorial here:
complete tutorial on Betty's blog: http://betty-thewoodfairy.blogspot.com/2011/06/wood-fairy.html
Perhaps you might like to sew a double sided flannel baby blanket?  Look here for a tutorial from Nancy's Arts & Crafts. Two sided blankets make for easy play on the floor with baby, or as a nursing cover.

Maybe you or a friend has need for a comfy bra insert due to a mastectomy.  This tutorial is quite renown and is a free pattern from Crystal Palace Yarns.


Not quite so glamorous, but a constant annoyance to many of us, is when the "toilet runs".  Don't laugh. Don't get mad.  Instead go to this tutorial to learn how YOU can fix that flapper!

Go ahead, take the challenge and share your favorite tutorial(s) and link up with Inspiration Avenue via Mr. Linky below so we can all benefit from what you have found to be of interest.

That flax seed looks good.

Sad to see someone blatantly advertising it's supposed to be a tutorial link guys.

I didn't do a video, because I don't have access to video camera. Hopefully my explanation with suffice. Blessings!

Thank you for featuring my Watercolour Colour chart video on your blog. I hope you found it helpful and inspirational. Please accept my apologies for my delay in responding but I was taken seriously ill last year and have only just started to get back into the swing of things. If you're interested you can read what happened to me on my blog here: http://watercolourjourney.com/life-normal/

You run an awesome blog, and I really love what you're doing. I will be following your future updates with close interest and will be sharing relevant material with my followers on my social networks, Twitter, Facebook etc.
Take care and all the best,
Ian.
