2017 Year in Review!

Hi everyone! To those that celebrated, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! And I hope you all are looking forward to ringing in the new year as well ❤
2017 has been crazy fun for new patterns and projects 😀 We got to have 2 plush-making contests that were a blast, lots of giveaways and free promotions, and of course tons of free sewing patterns. I thought I’d make a top ten list of the most popular posts from this past year as a fun look back.


Of course Toothless makes it to #1 It was insanely popular thanks to all of you — and so much fun for me to make 😀

I had a lot of fun personally getting to do so many infographics, so I’m really happy one of them made it on the list 😀 My other favorite part of 2017 was planning so much stuff for Halloween season ❤ I’m sure other crafters & bloggers out there can agree that coming up with lots of content is tough, so I’m glad I got the chance to go all out during September and October. I hope to do the same again in 2018.
As for what else to expect in 2018? I’ve considered all the wonderful suggestions and ideas you all have sent me through the year and am excited to implement them 😀 These include at least one more infographic, more dragons, some foxes, axolotls, a Chocobo, and possibly ferrets/weasels. As always, I'm open to suggestions in the comments!

Thank you everyone so much for staying with my little blog up until now ❤ I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for all of you! I hope you enjoy what’s to come in 2018!

Pattern Review: Vogue’s 1031 Dress

Brown Dress
Something different today! I have a sewing pattern to review now ^-~ This dress is Vogue 1031, a floor length bias dress with draped neckline, spaghetti straps, pleated inset, and side zipper. Bias dresses like this are probably one of my favorite things to sew, I love the way they come together and I love the way they look. If you are a fan of the way bias works and feels, then I definitely suggest you think about getting it 😀

Pattern Review: Vogue Knitting’s Fingerless Gloves

Flower Wrist WarmersOooooh! Aren’t these just the fanciest things you ever did see? These are the Fingerless Gloves from Vogue Knitting Holiday 2009. Believe it or not, these gloves are made by knitting one large and one small star in the round, then sewing the points together into a shape that fits over one’s arms. I must admit they look a lot more complicated than they actually are – though they are still a bit complex.

Pattern Review: Interweave Knits’ Anouschka Scarf

BubbleScarfWow. This project took sooo incredibly long. But I think it was worth it. This is definitely one of those long time investment type projects. This project is the Anouschka Scarf from Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts 2010 issue. It’s a really cool looking scarf that has multiple looks depending on how you treat it. Pull on the inner cord and it scrunches up the bubbles into these lovely drapey ruffles, our leave the inner cord loose and you get to see the full waves of the bubbles.
