Creativebug Review

I have been in a nonstop crafting mood lately and I was excited to be given the opportunity to try out a 30 day membership of Creativebug. A website full of video craft tutorials sounds amazing. There's my favorites: crochet, knitting, clothing, accessories and mixed media plus they have even more.

Each tutorial has organized tabs underneath the video. There's sections that show each chapter, the length of time and you're able to click on any chapter to skip ahead :D

Half of the videos I watched covered sewing basics. The machine itself, seams, needles and threads, fabrics, buttonholes, how to read a pattern, etc.  It's been a long time since I used a machine so all of these were super helpful for me. The HD quality surprised me!  The sewing machine basics were straight to the point and I could actually see how to wind a bobbin + thread it close up.

Creativebug is only $10 per month for access to all the videos. It will auto-renew by the next month but you can cancel at any time before. It makes more sense to do this rather than buying each class separately. Unless you really just want one class or if it goes over a pattern that you need the video for. They do have some videos available for free and as free during a 14 day trial (use promo code ART).

I'll be raiding the website again when I get myself a membership. I am focused on a goal that might be too advanced for my nonexistent skills haha.  I really want to sew a shirt and a simple dress. One video shows you how to draft a pattern from one of your shirts and another video that traces a shirt to make a dress. Fingers are crossed that I won't fail!!  I just saw this one today:

Yessssss pockets

I don't have anything complete to show yet but here's the fabric I got for it!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
