We interrupt your regularly scheduled Friday Favorites to bring you…the one-year anniversary of Crafty Staci! I can’t believe it’s been a whole year already. Time really does fly when you’re having fun!
Because it’s Friday, I’m still going to share some favorites, but instead of linking to others, they’re all right here. These are the top ten most popular posts from my blog during the past year.
#10 – Forever Fabric Flowers
I knew when the barely-twenty-something guy at FedEx asked me if I made these and responded to my answer with “Wow!” I was doing ok with the crafting thing. These were shipped off as a get well gift to my niece Laura in Minnesota, who is making a miraculous recovery.
Sometimes I make things just to see if I can. This fortune teller turned out better than I expected, as it actually works. We gave this one to our son as a card to go with his 8th grade graduation gift.
When you have something that looks like this attached to the handle of your luggage, you don’t have to look very hard for it. These have made it through the airport and cruise ship terminal so far and are holding up well.
I have these little pockets to thank for getting my Etsy store off the ground. And I’m making some progress toward learning to use that camera.
#6 – Felt and Wire Angel
I tend to make things that are fairly simple. It has to do with my complete lack of patience and my need to finish something in the same session I started it. I am apparently not alone in my love for quick, easy projects. Thanks for validating my impatience.
This one was a surprise to me, because I felt like everyone had probably already learned how to make these before I came along. I’ve never been happier to be wrong.
#4 – Ninja Monkey Bag
I made this one for my daughter and I’ve made several since, including another for her that has Batman all over it. This was one of my first attempts at creating a purse pattern from scratch, and I’m pretty happy with the results.
#3 – More Fabric Flowers
This is the flower I used on the Ninja Monkey Bags. I’ve been eyeing it again lately for use on a headband or hair clip.
#2 – Robin Hood Hats
If you would have told me a year ago, when I started this blog, that one of my most popular posts would end up being Robin Hood hats, I would have laughed my head off. Seriously, barely a day goes by when some version of Robin Hood hats doesn’t come up in the search terms that people have used to find my blog. And I never stop being amazed by it.
#1 – Passport Wallet
Some of my favorite projects have been those born out of necessity. There is a good feeling that goes along with making something you need. This baby is safely tucked away, waiting for our next adventure. This was also my first and, thus far, only giveaway. Until tomorrow…
