I am not from the YouTube Generation


It’s easy, Granny!

My granddaughter told me that I could make Barbie doll clothes from socks. She knew this because she saw it on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4L1mjtjNifY

Since my granddaughters come over to play, I thought how hard can this be? One night at about 10:30 pm, I turned on the video, brought the pretty socks I had purchased at the $ store, a scissor, and one of the Barbie dolls who live at my house. I was all set to snip and create at my computer desk.

At midnight

At midnight after setting up my sewing machine and having one outfit that didn’t reflect the YouTube demonstration, I had learned a few things.

  1. Buy smaller socks.
  2. When you buy inexpensive socks with pretty designs on the outside, the inside is a bunch of loose threads.
  3. YouTube demonstrations are a lot harder than they look.

    • Hi Leeann,
      I suppose as we do with our writing, these YouTube people practise, practise to make it appear easy.
      I tried to fix my kitchen tap using Google and YouTube. I went to Canadian Tire, purchased the part suggested, bought the necessary tools and then couldn’t remove the first screw. I returned the part and tools and called a plumber. He installed the new tap system in no time and for only twice as much as I received from my refunds.
