so...i am diving into the world of video blogs, hehe.
the lovely Michelle over at Scissor Quirk asked me to participate in her blog party that is going on right now so i offered up a few headbands for a giveaway.
i hadn't actually made the holly headband yet so when it came time to do so i decided to turn it into a video tutorial!
so here it is...complete with some beach boys tunes. would christmas music have been more appropriate? maybe...but i love the beach boys.
if you feel like hanging out for 11 minutes (i know that's long) grab some felt, embroidery thread, needles, scissors and yarn and click below :)
holiday headband tutorial from love elycia on Vimeo.
*please note...the blog party is today...not yesterday, haha*
*another note...if you can't crochet, you can make a braided band...you'll see what i'm talking about, haha.*
haha you are adorable. and now we have bonded over the fonz :)ReplyDelete
i like how we both work with the same medium - but create very different things ;)
super cute tutorial! the camera loves you darling you should make more ^.^ thank you for sharing!!!ReplyDelete
I dont comment often but this video deserves comment!!! you rocked! the 11 mins flew by like it was only two minutes. I also want to say (lol) you sperate floss the same way i do !!!! love it!ReplyDelete
and I crochet weird too. I dont know what you would call the way i do but I hold my hands all wrong and I hold it in the wrong hand. I dont do well crocheting more that one line since I hold it wrong... and I agree you should completely make more videos. i was looking for an accent but since Im in northern minnesota we probably sound similar!
thanks so much for this! cant wait to see the next one!
Im just a little north of there! it is beautiful and friendly here!ReplyDelete
and I wanted to say congrats on your engagement. im getting married in sept. it will be a vintage style themed wedding! cant wait!
cant wait to more wedding stuff on your blog!
have a lovely day!
Very cool! I've been meaning to try a video blog but I'm just a tad bit shy about getting in front of the camera! Haha. I think I sound funny on camera.ReplyDelete
You are so cute! Thanks for sharing. :)ReplyDelete
oh my goodness. I am SO making this! I'll have to send you a picture when I make it! :)oh this is just so lovely Elycia!ReplyDelete

Your video is too cute. Your voice is what I imagined you would sound like. Is that weird? Oh well. Very cute idea.ReplyDelete
Yes, super cute video...I loved it!!! Thanks for sharing!!!ReplyDelete
Cute video and great way to share a tutorial - was a pleasure to see you 'at work'. Thanks for sharing :)ReplyDelete
Elycia, i have that EXACT dress you are wearing! Too funny! Great tutorial! :)ReplyDelete
Zoe...did yours cost $2.49? plus 10% off? because mine die, hehe. :)ReplyDelete
Love it! I always wondered about your "adjustable" headbands :) I figured they would have to tie. :)ReplyDelete
Also....I assume you used iMovie to make this? I might have to experiment!
leyla, hehe, yes...definitely tie on :)ReplyDelete
and i did use imovie! we started experimenting with it in vegas. we made a bit of a documentary of our trip. i like it a lot!
great tutorial! I loved it! thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
No it didn't! It cost like $9.99... i'm jealous. ;)ReplyDelete
SO festive and fun!ReplyDelete
this is wicked. I love your moustache headband too! Im going to go home and get myself a glass of wine and have a crack at this headband. or just make holly decorations for the tree instead :)ReplyDelete
p.s. you have amazing hair.
this is a really neat tutorial :) thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
so cute :) Thanks for sharing...I hope I win hahaReplyDelete
this is so so cute, i can't wait to make one and wear it to work!ReplyDelete
This is absolutely too cute. Totally making one. Like, asap.ReplyDelete

I found you through scissor quirk!ReplyDelete
I'm so happy you have a tutorial for this. Totally making it for Christmas!
very awesome! you should def start doing more video blogs!! i love how your cat is creeping around in the background haha =) love the headbands!ReplyDelete
Love it!!! I think I will make one tonight!ReplyDelete
This is awesome. I am always curious what bloggers voices sound like, and I kind of started to laugh because I always expect an accent but since we are both Canadian when I heard you, I heard no accent haha!ReplyDelete
Ps. your headband is great. I made something like it the other day to wear to a craft sale I was selling things at. I did mine like mistletoe though with white berries! Very cute!
Spectacular! I've wanted something to wear during holiday parties, and this is perfect, as it accurately shows both my holiday spirit and my name :)ReplyDelete
