My Best of 2012

It seems fitting to end 2012 with a review of my year of making! Here’s a lineup of the garments these two hands churned out in my first six months of blogging.

Since I’ve only been blogging for a short time, I decided to choose my top 3 favorite projects of the year. I was going to do the bottom 3 least favorite, too, but I decided to just leave some of those bad memories in this year rather than drag them along for the New Year. ;)

#3 – STOCKINGS!

Make your own Christmas stocking from an existing one!

Why it’s on the list: Has to do more with sentimental reasons than anything – spending first Christmas living with Mr. 5. <3 Bonus? Finally found a use for some of this delightful quilting cotton!

#2 – Jalie 2919

Why it’s on the list: Because the ease of construction to wearability ratio is very high. I wear it ALL of the time, and loved it so much I made some for the women in my family for Christmas! I plan to make an oatmeal colored light sweater knit version in the near future.

#1 – Simplicity 2172

Why it’s on the list: Because I’m proud I actually finished it, and on time! Plus, I won the Pattern Review costume contest with it, which was very exciting. Speaking of which, I just realized the other day that I forgot to share my prize with you:

Thank you so much, Schmetz!

With all of that said, I will bid you a safe and happy New Year’s Eve. See you in the New Year and thank you for making my first few months blogging a blast! :)
