Woo hoo! I’ve never made the jump to knits, but with video help I think I could make it. Good stuff!

Congrats! You are so adorable in those stills! So crazy, but I live in New Orleans, and this grandma was at the park with her granddaughter, and I was there with me girls. She was wearing this adorable skirt, and I asked her wear she bought it. She goes, “I made it, it’s called a market skirt.” and I go, “You mean from dana made it?” She goes, “Yes!” This grandma lives in Wisconsin. You are changing wardrobes all around the country!

I love how professional the video is! I have looked for so many Youtube channels to learn how to sew but they are all amateurs. Thank you for this but since I am a beginner I would love more close ups when you are pinning. Thanks again!!!!

Reply

24 Rebekah December 17, 2013 at 11:02 am

Yyyyyaaaaayyyyyy!! I’ve been following your blog for two years now: since I got my mother-in-law’s hand-me-down sewing machine from the 70s. That’s when I learned how to sew and I started with your simple projects like fitted sheets and pacifier holders (on a clip) and a circle skirt. Your instructions are so clear and helpful. You make it easy for everyone to enjoy sewing. These videos are going to be even more exciting and wonderful! Thank you!!

Reply

25 Jenny L December 17, 2013 at 11:04 am

This is so great! I could definitely use the visual instructions for sewing – seeing the process in action will be helpful! Congratulations!

Congratulations on another great endeavor! You and your family must be so proud and over the moon with excitement!

What a wonderful idea and so really practical. I will try to keep up but I spend so many hours at work it is difficult. I have really been wanting a basic t-shirt pattern. and help with knits using a sewing machine and not a serger. Great!!!!

How awesome, amazing, fantabulous, exciting and every other awesome word I can’t think of right this minute. I can’t wait for more!!!!! Was just curious what kind of machine you have though, I have gradually began sewing more and more and think I might be ready to graduate to a more advanced machine. Not looking for a super fancy just a step up from my very basic and beginner Brother machine. Thanks again for all your inspiration. LOVE IT as always.

53 KimberlyL December 17, 2013 at 3:41 pm

I have been following you since you started the blog. I have watched your children grow and your crafts and sewing and tutorial!! And yes, the video will help with visual. But I am deaf and this is my most fear…. All I asked (hope it not to much because you do have a lot going on :) )Just have it caption so I can easily follow what you are saying. It just not only me but for other who are deaf that will like to see your “how to do”. But your first video is if you click CC on the right bottom (sometime the caption are not very accurate of what you or other people are saying so we had to guess but seeing it helps!) I think it GREAT that you are doing this because you have a lot of talent and so easy to understand!! You are doing a GREAT job!! thanks for doing all you do!

So excited for you, and for us that get to watch and learn! Love youtube (and all the entrepreneurs on there) and have started to put myself out there, on youtube. I even made a creative channel to put projects on, but need to get something up on that channel yet, probably after Christmas. Although I don’t comment often, love your blog and projects! Thanks for sharing! :)

Are you kidding?! This is fabulous! Yours is the first YouTube channel I’ve ever even *considered* subscribing to :) (Now I’ll think about it for awhile and see if I can even figure it out ;) ) And how have I missed your Basic Tee tutorial? I make the Kid Pants all the time. Def trying out the shirt next :)

Reply

57 Diana December 17, 2013 at 4:04 pm

P.S. 1) You sew over pins?!?! ;) 2) I am totally jealous that you can just pivot your chair and be at your ironing board. 3) You sew lightning fast!

LOVED it! You are so fabulous to watch. I loved how there was enough detail that everything was outlined, but I didn’t have to watch the whole thing. Long enough to cover everything, but short enough to keep it interesting! And when we get a little bit warmer weather, I will for sure use your 4T pattern to make my son some new tshirts! He will certainly need them and I have a big refashioning pile. Love your blog!!

95 Kristen December 18, 2013 at 1:37 pm

So fun! You do a really great job breaking the project down into simple, easy steps. I did get a little lost on how to pin/sew the neckline but I assume the instructions in the pattern are a little more clear and/or I can figure it out based on other t-shirts I own. I’ve looked at your basic t-shirt pattern so many times and always thought, “Eh. I’m not up for that today.” But it looks so easy I think I’ll try it this weekend. I can’t wait for more videos!

Also. Ironing = no fun!
