2017 is coming to a close, so I’m looking back on the most popular posts I shared this year! I based the list off things that were published this year, my most popular posts overall rarely change, you can see what those are in my q3 blog report. It’s always interesting to see what resonated with readers in comparison to my favorites, and it doesn’t surprise me that the #1 most popular was also my personal favorite from the year! I’d love to hear if you think a project I shared didn’t get the credit it deserved, you can see below that the opposite happened and there is one that got more attention than I expected!
Presented in order of descending popularity:
This is one of my favorites, and I’m so pleased with how many examples I’ve seen with it stitched up! Happy little felt kitty to tuck into a pocket or hang on the tree. Definitely my most popular free pattern I’ve offered.
This post is loaded with links to over 100 free patterns for baby gifts, so I’m not surprised it has been well received!
This was my first time working with clay and I love how this turned out; a twist on the typical pincushion.
I love patches! These pants were a big hit, and I think they’re even cuter than before I mended them.
I’m surprised to see this on here; I usually peek at my stats every few days and don’t remember ever seeing this as a top post so it must be a slow, steady traffic. I try to use up every last scrap, so I hope this inspires other people to keep (or give away) their scraps instead of trashing them.
I like having this post to direct friends who want to start sewing, or kids who are ready to learn, glad it is well received.
I’m planning on making some variations of this in 2018, I gave this one to my Mom and I want some for myself!
These look so professional, I think, but I was surprised to see these too!
I’m going to be honest, I don’t love this project. But apparently the Internet does!
We’re talking about trying to get to a beach in 2018 so I need to sew more of these, they are simple but effective.
Last minute addition! I had no idea a post could take off so quickly, but it turns out that this collection of the most popular free sewing patterns from over 50 different designers was a hit! It was published after this post, and definitely in the top 10 most popular after only a day or two, so go check it out here.
What do you think, which was your favorite?
