Stitching Vlog #1



Susprise!


I figured since I've got myself a nicer camera, might as well do some more videos for Youtube, haha :)


There are already many embroidery tutorials out there but I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a “Stitching vlog” kind of thing? Like, the one that just shows the process of embroidering, not necessarily giving a lesson.


Personally, I love art journal and bullet journal themed videos on Youtube which feature flip-throughs and “paint with me” kind of videos. They are a great source of inspiration, just seeing how another person gets creative is therapeutic in itself (I have a friend who literally watches drawing videos as a form of meditation and relaxation! :D).


So I thought why not do something like that for embroidery journals?


This video in particular shows only the end of me working on this page because that's when the idea came. But for the next page, I have been filming the whole process from the start and plan to do so for the whole journal Inshallah.


Will be grateful if you have a look and tell me what you think :) I'm still a newbie at this, Inshallah with time the quality will improve :)


Take care!

  1. Me encanto el video! Soy del tipo de persona visual. Aprendo más y mejor viendo como ocurre la acción en si misma que siguiendo una guía de pasos con diagramas. Tu inglés también me resulto muy fácil de entender sin mucha necesidad de leer los subtitulos, lo cual me pone feliz ya que hace bastante que no lo practico. Espero con ansias mas videos tutoriales tuyos, para seguir mi educación en el bordado. Deseo que sigas sana y a salvo. Cariños desde Argentina.

  2. Hi Amina, I think it's a wonderful idea, I'm subscribed to your YouTube channel and I watched your Vlog #1 and gave it a thumbs up. It's good to have some kind of reference to go back to and see exactly how it's done. I love the metallic thread work too. We are still in lockdown in the UK and just coming into Spring, it was lovely to see the beach with the water lapping at its edges. Take care, Ann.

  3. Hi Amina, What a great idea! I was having a bit of difficulty hearing you, so maybe a little more volume would help (old ears!). I would love to be doing more hand stitching and this seems a very pleasant way to do it. Here in the US we're in various states (!) of lockdown and enjoying the coming of Spring and more ability to get out. Take care and stay safe! Ruth

    1. Hi, Ruth! Yeah, I've noticed that I have problems with sound, so I made the next video with subtitles instead. Hope the situation gets better at the US and you will all enjoy some freedom outside :)

    1. Oh, Sharon! Thank you, really. I was a little self conscious about my voice :D

  5. The author has discussed a very resourceful topic in times of the pandemic. We, as a nation, cannot keep our children out of schools forever. Hence a plan needs to be implemented where children can safely go to school without getting mass infected. However, it is not recommended for parents or children to go physically to the shops for book supplies. Hence there is a need for an online book shop such as KitaabNow.
