Let's All Share One 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:

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:

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!

After the Challenge of the week is over, I plan on putting a listing of ALL shared tutorials on my blog sidebar.  The more the merrier!

Be sure to go over to Inspiration Avenue and share your tutorial and link up with Inspiration Avenue via Mr. Linky so we can all benefit from what you have found to be of interest.


  1. This is a nice idea Nancy - I will post the link for my tutorial so anyone who hasn't seen it might want to give it a try. Betty

  2. Thanks, Betty! It got me into silk painting more, for sure.

  3. And now the link is correct; sorry about that!

  4. I love that sweater! Great tutorial too.
