Woo-hoo!!! My very first Skillshare class is live! Now folks from all over the world can watch How to Make a Spiral Ribbon Lei. It’s pretty cool how about $5 worth of materials can turn into something as beautiful as this:
Thanks so much to everyone who left feedback on the intro video last week. It was really helpful and I appreciate it! If you didn’t see that draft version, or just want to see the intro titles and hear some catchy music, here’s the final version of the intro video:
After a lot of thinking on it, I decided to make the class “Premium” instead of free, but the first 25 blog readers who sign up using this link will receive the class completely free!
If you like what you see on Skillshare and want to make the switch to Premium, you can use this link to receive an unlimited, Premium membership completely free for one month!
If you’re wondering what the heck Skillshare is, I have a post comparing and contrasting my two favorite online learning platforms right here. =)
If you’re not ready to jump on a new learning platform or think the spiral lei looks a bit intense (although I promise you that it is so super easy! It doesn’t matter if you’ve never sewed before and you don’t even really have to measure anything), I have other ribbon lei tutorials available on my blog. They’re just photos, not full video tutorials, but they’re a great place to start. You can see my most basic, 2 strand ribbon lei here and a slightly fancier 4 strand braided ribbon lei here. There’s also this beauty, a four strand lei with picot ribbon:
Now that I’ve done a video class for making a lei, I’m kind of tempted to make more Skillshare classes on lei making. It is so much easier to see the process in motion than learn it from still pictures!
Thanks again to everyone who provided feedback and I hope y’all enjoy the class!
