Video Tutorials

I’m a visual learner and do better being shown than from reading instructions.  Whenever I have a sewing pattern, project or tutorial to share, I’ll often do a video too.  Click on any of the little video thumbnails below and the video will play in the large area at the top of the page.

    Hi Mayra

    I have made the walking shorts and love the pattern. One question, have you made the video tutorial on adding the fold up cuffs yet?

    • Mayra Cecilia says:

      Not yet Brigitte, sadly there are not enough hours in the day for the already 16 hours a day work load I was. I am working on it.

  2. Debra Dosen says:

    I am a basic beginner to sewing, what would e an easy project for me to start with?

  3. Corinne says:

    I love your designs and am just attempting the bucket bag. Is there a video of this as I am struggling with a few little bits with the straps

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Hi Corinne, not finished with the video yet. How can I help you? You have to thread the strap and sandwich it with the handles. It is a bit different but it works.

    Is there a video for the leather and fabric purse?

  6. Jackie Manley says:

    Just discovered your site. It’s fab. I’m 76 and I am happy to learn new things.
    Thank you very much.

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Welcome Jackie, it is never late to be creative and it is certainly never late to learn, so yes stay a while happy you are here! XOXO

    I can’t believe you offer this wonderful sight —AND ITS EVEN FREE!!! I’ts hard to believe. Your sight makes me terrifically happy, because I have taken many pay classes that were crowded and very hard to even ask a question. I love your tutorials, they are easy to understand, you explain every detail, and that is so important for begginner sewers. Your tutorial for the star coin purse was awsome, and it was so well done I feel confident I can make it. I want to make one for my granddaughter. 2 Questions, because I am not computer savy, I have a hard time finding things and 1. I can not find your video to make the tassel, is there any magic way of telling me how I might get to it??? 2. I also can not find anything about So Sew Easy possibly selling fabric, and I was wondering if you do sell the beautiful leather fabric you made the star coin purse with and the other lovely leather handbag. I have not been able to find a pretty silver like that, and I love the idea of leather. I love you people for your sight and loved reading about your life, but like I said I sometimes have a hard time finding things on all sights—-I will keep playing around though, because I am finding new things each time. Thank you for being such kind and generous people to really teach like you do, because your tutorials really make my day and I’m SURE IT MAKES OTHER PEOPLES TOO, BECAUSE YOU TEACH SO A BEGINNER CAN FOLLOW—-THANKS AGAIN.

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Dear Tammy, your comment warms my heart. Thank you for appreciating all the work that goes into continuing a site such as this. YOU can find great leather on Amazon such as this in the link. I would also check Tandy Leather they sell all sort of things related to leather craft. As for the fabrics, yes that is in the pipeline, I would like to have a collection out by late next year. Wishing you a Happy 2019, any questions do not hesitate to drop me an email, I might take a bit to answer but will do my best to do it as fast as I can.

    Is there a video for chemo headwear? I really want to make it but can’t figure it out. Thanks.

  9. Rhonda F says:

    I purchased the leggings pattern from Etsy and I do not see where the fabric requirements are for each size and option. I’ve emailed through Etsy also. Please advise how much fabric i need to purchase for each size and option of the leggings.

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Hi Rhonda, the possibilities are many, what type of fabric are you using? what is the stretch percentage? What is the width of the fabric? Three possibilities, for each size. As you can see it is a very extensive suggestion, as I see it if you want to save money en purchase only what you need, print the sizes and lay them on a similar fabric and work out the amount of fabric. Pay close attention to the stretch of the fabric. Kind Regards,

  10. Harriet Ortiz says:

    Bought the pattern for the Ultimate Wallet but the picture tutorial is confusing. Need to access the video on YouTube noted in the pattern but the link doesn’t work. Where can I go to get the instructional video?

  11. Roberta McReynolds says:

    I hope the video for the chemo headwear will be available soon. I got started but can’t get it all figured out. Thanks,

    • Debbie Johnson says:

      I am glad to know I am not the only one who can’t figure out the Chemo headware. I need the video too.

      • Guylaine says:

        Same here! So sad I could not understand how to do it. Unfortunately the pictures confuse me. Please! Please! Would you make a video? I want to give this hat to a friend who just ended her treatment. I’m sure she will love it!

  12. Molly says:

    Hi, is there a pattern download for the hand towel toppers?

  13. Mary W. says:

    This is a wonderful site, I couldn’t make the button hole maker work that came with the machine. Haaa I was putting the thing on backwards. Now I don’t have to change
    machines to make button holes. Thank’s for the lesson.

    Hi! I’m ready to take the leap and make the hoodie. Do you have a video for it?

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Coming out this week!

      • Andy says:

        Did I miss the video for the hoodie? I don’t see it anywhere and I am looking forward to trying it…I could dive right in to the pattern but would rather watch someone make it first.

        • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

          No you did not missed it. I am editing the video and it is taking me longer than I wanted to but I really need to do it well so you can follow along.

          • Andy says:

    Yes — Where have you been all my life ???– I’m 83 years old and still love sewing. Thanks for all your comments . I do have one question on Thread. How to store them – Right now I have them in a large plastic container sitting next to my sewing machine. Do you have other ideas ?? Thank You so much — Louise

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Hi Louise, so great you enjoy the site, your threads are as far as I know well store that way in a plastic container free from dust and humidity. Check out Pinterest there are so many ideas there it would be hard to list them all.

  22. Nancy Hummel says:
