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 after setting up my sewing machine and having one outfit that didn’t reflect the YouTube demonstration, I had learned a few things.
- Buy smaller socks.
- When you buy inexpensive socks with pretty designs on the outside, the inside is a bunch of loose threads.
- YouTube demonstrations are a lot harder than they look.

This is my EXACT experience with trying to put my hair in a bun.
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.
(Well…. minus the granddaughter.)
