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. You can find my YouTube channel at

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

  3. 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,

    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?

  5. 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,

    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.

      • 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.

    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.
