Where do I Start? 

I’m scratching my head as I really want to start doing a vlog that runs alongside my blog. There are so many beautiful sewing vloggers out there I would like tips on where to start and how to do one. 


I’ve watched several YouTube videos on how to do it. But I’m still struggling to look and sound streamlined – do you do it in one take? Or is in several little takes and cleverly edited together? 

After filming myself several times in one take, I’m coming to the conclusion I need to take bite takes and mould them into one. 


Also when your looking into your iPhone/ iPad, you look at the little lens rather than the screen? I’m thinking I should be looking at the lens! Am I right? 

With so many questions am asking myself how much time do you put into your own vlog before you publish them? How long does it take to film and the edit? What editing apps do you use if you use an iPad or iPhone.

I have an dslr camera and a tripod which I could set up instead of the iPhone/iPad. 

I’m thinking of using the vlog to be interactive with the patterns and fabric I choose for my projects. I’ll also pass on any tips that I’ve found useful and with that maybe show you any new things that I’ve bought. On top of that, a sewing room tour would definitely be top of the list and details of how I organised my space would also be available. When I’ve made my makes I can show them off by giving them a twirl and give my pros, cons and findings. 

Of course, I still keep blogging – but the vlog would be that little extra. It’s just going to take a little time to bring it altogether but any tips would be really appreciated from experienced bloggers&vloggers! 

Thank you for reading and Happy New Year to you all xx

  1. I decided to just DO IT! I use my iPhone, plus iMovie or splice to edit, although sound wise I have trouble with its mic outdoors so I might have to think about that. I try to look directly into the lens so I’m in effect looking directly at the viewer. My reasoning is just start, practice practice practice and I’ll get better at it 🙂 good luck!
