I'm In The Movies! Intro Video: How To Make A Purse Using Simplicity 2685

Well, I got the first video done! It's live on YouTube!

It was much harder than I thought it would be. I thought I could just "wing it" with the intro but after about 15 takes I ended up writing a script and even making a cue card of sorts. It's going to take some time to get used to being in front of the camera, but I think I'll get there (probably with every pound I lose I'll get more and more comfortable!).

I needed video editing software that wasn't too expensive so I searched Google and found It's only $29.95 for 1 year or $59.95 for unlimited lifetime. I chose the lifetime since I plan on doing this for a while. The software is very comprehensive for the small amount you pay. I was able to do lay-overs, text, and transitions, and you can add audio overlay too. I imagine if I want to get "really" in to video editing I would need more but this will do me for now. Oh, and with the unlimited subscription you can download all their software. In addition to the video editing software, yesterday I used their video file format changer. It worked great to change my MP4 to a WMV. If you need a good, but inexpensive video editing program that's easy to use, give it a try. Below is the link, I signed up for the affiliate program but don't have the link yet - when I get it - I will change the link to be my affiliate link.

Anyway, here's my debut...

I'm going to try to get the next video done tomorrow, maybe edited too. I'll post if I do. I tried today but I'm using a Flip Video and it ran out of juice. It takes 3 hours to charge and I ran out of light. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

In the next video I'm going to cover how to cut out the fabric. My fabric has a design that needs to match at the seams so I'm going to cover that as well.

Please let me know what you think...I can take it. Critiques make my products better. Oh, and I know this one is a bit boring, I'm sure I'll get better with time (and weight loss!).

Looking forward to hearing from you - until later ~

You have done a great job. Your confidence will grow and later you will wonder why you were scared.

Good luck and may you have a wonderful 2012.

Susan, thank you so much for the encouragement. I agree, it seems to get easier and easier with every "take". I hope you have a wonderful year as well.

I'm a complete novice and have just bought this pattern as I love the bags. I'm really looking forward to your next video as I can't wait to get started.

BTW, I love your style - relaxed and friendly.

I'm sorry I haven't gotten back to this, I've been so busy this year at work that I just never found the time. Now my daughter is getting close to the time when her baby is due and I've been planning a shower.

I really feel bad that I started and never came back, I've had several emails asking when the next video would come out. I think I'll try to finish up after the shower which is at the end of April. For now my sewing machine is put away so we can use the dining room for the shower. So sometime in May I'll try to get the next video out.

Sorry to everyone who has been waiting.

I do have some photos with the stages of the diaper cake I'm working on, I'll post those soon.
