One Year Bloggy Anniversary!

Last month, my blog reached its 1 year milestone! YAY!! So I thought it would be interesting to run through some fun facts from my first year of blogging.

Most pinned and most popular post:

PJ Pants - Free Sewing Pattern and Tutorial with 2500 pins that I could find! There is probably more. Everyone loves a good free pattern.

Most embarrassing post:

Ombre Board Shorts. The pictures here are terrible and the shorts were too big to fit for a while. Oh well :)

Most worn item:

Oliver + S Bucket Hats x 6. This one is probably the most practical item I have ever sewn. My boys are always wearing their hats, and in fact they are due for new ones. I know the others that I gave as gifts were worn a lot too!

Bucket hats

Least worn item:

Spring Formal Basic Blazer. Unfortunately there just isnt very many places to wear an awesome jacket like this one. Plus the fit was just right at the time I made it and one growth spurt later it was a little too tight.

Blank Slate Basic Blazer

It was so fun putting this list together. I wonder where the next year will take me! Haha, is there any other interesting facts you would like to know? Leave a comment! :)

    Big congrats to you Toni-Maree!! Thanks so much for your wonderful blog - you were one of the inspirations for me starting my own blog this year :) Keep up the great work! *chink, chink* (champagne glass) x

  3. I know you said it was your least worn, but would love to make your basic blazzer

    Congrats Toni, that is an achievement! You were simply the best when it came to helping me with those pj's and my kids have been wearing only them ever since. I also have the bucket hat pattern and whenever I fond my craft mojo again I may even break out the sewing machine. Look forward to what you have up your sleeve in the next 12 months.

    Happy Birthday to Sew Jereli!!!! Love being one of your avid readers and thanks again for inspiring me to blog (albeit rarely!) for myself XD

  6. Happy Blogiversary! That blazer was so beautiful, such a shame it had so little use. The hats are such a good project!
