A Recent Fabric Haul - Video!Thursday, October 16, 2014
Hello! Well, this post is going up a little later than I had planned - I hadn't realised how many teething problems I was going to have uploading my first video to YouTube! Hopefully the post will launch successfully and everything will be working, but do let me know if there are any issues.
Today I thought I would try something a little bit different - a video! I have to admit that I am a bit of a YouTube addict and love watching YT videos. I tend to watch beauty and make-up videos mainly but do watch the odd craft/sewing channels as well. Anyway, I was sorting out a pile of recently purchased fabric and thought how much I would love to share my 'haul' with like-minded people but photos just don't do fabric justice. So the next best thing to showing you in person is filming a fabric haul video!
It's a bit of a long video and I'm a bit nervous at the start, but I soon warm up and get into chatting about my various fabrics. I hope you enjoy and maybe see something that you might like to pick up for yourself ;)

Well I hope you enjoyed watching my first video installation! I have a few more ideas for future videos so do let me know if you would like to see those. Hopefully the more I do, the less nervous/awkward I will sound and the better quality my videos will become. Oh, and if my accent sounds funny it's because I grew up in Indonesia (and went to an International school), went to Uni in Edinburgh and have been living in Belfast for the last 8 years!
