About this time every year, I share with you the most popular tutorials from my blog. I usually confine it to the top ten, but because this is a special, milestone year, I decided to expand it to the top twenty. That gives a few things a chance to have their moment that don’t ordinarily make it onto the all-time list. I’m here to try to make the popularity contest a little more inclusive. Coming next to a high school near you.
I made this bag for my daughter when she bought her first laptop computer. In an instance of blog vs. real life, I wanted to make it with pretty fabric, but it wouldn’t have suited my Batman-loving girl.
My daughter used this pattern to make a stocking for her new husband last Christmas. <3
The fact that this one made the list was a bit of a surprise to me, but I guess I really like it too, since it’s still in my kitchen after 4 years.
Since I started selling these in my Etsy shop with the teacher’s name hand embroidered on them, I can tell you exactly what you’ll find me working on every evening before Christmas and near the end of the school year.
I’m going to be perfectly honest here – when I started this wristlet, I didn’t think it was going to turn out well. I took photos anyway, just in case, but I was winging it and I was intimidated by the fabric. I’ve never been happier to be wrong.
This bracelet was born out of a legitimate fail. I tried to make a t-shirt into a summer top and it was wrong in every direction. Fortunately, I was able to use it in this much more successful project.
I made this backpack to carry my stuff on some land excursions during a family cruise to Mexico a few years ago. This bag and I drove a dune buggy, rode a horse, toured a tequila distillery and hung out at the beach. I still have it, and I think it deserves another trip. You know, for the backpack’s sake.
These were really fun to make, and now that I have a vinyl cutting machine they’d be even better. It might be time to make these again.
I have to assume this made the list because there are lots of other people out there trying to figure out how to make an infinity scarf on a knitting loom. They’re probably a little disappointed by what they find here. That, or everyone is enjoying laughing at my mistake. I kinda hope it’s that second one.
This is one of the most controversial projects I’ve shared. All I have to say about it is that these are allowed in some facilities and not others, so be sure to check before making one for yourself or giving it as a gift. Goodness.
Look for the top ten next Friday!
