2017 has been an awesome year on Super Mom – No Cape! This year has seen more visitors and subscribers than ever before.
And I can’t thank you all enough for visiting and taking time to leave comments and send emails!
Once again this year, my tutorials are your favorites. Some of the tutorials that were popular this year are from years past and others were brand new on the blog this year.
My favorite emails are when one of you writes to me attaching photos of the things you’ve made from one of them.
There will be lots more new tutorials coming in 2018. In addition, I plan on updating older tutorials with brand new photos and more detailed instructions.
Other popular posts were sewing tips and tricks, so there will also be more of those in the coming year as well.
I’ve always loved the Top 10 articles that are in abundance as the old year gives way to the new, so I decided to put together a list of my top 10 sewing posts for 2017.
Starting with #10:
I created this tutorial for the 2017 Ornament Exchange hosted by Erlene over at My Pinterventures. I sent three of the ornaments to my swap partner and kept two of them to hang on our tree.
I loved designing the appliqué centers. I plan to add more to the series and will be sharing those with you in the near future.
If you’ve ever had a shower puff unravel after just a few uses, I show you how to rescue it and make it like new again.
This is one of the first tutorials I created for the blog and has consistently been one of my most visited posts every month, not just during the three months leading up to the holidays.
It’s a great way to use up strips of Christmas fabric leftover from your holiday sewing and gives you a head start on items to add to your gift box for when the holidays come round again.
This was a brand new tutorial on the blog this year and quickly became another of your favorites.
There are all sorts of tutorials out there for how to make soup bowl cozies but as far as I know, this is the first one to use charm squares to create them. They are great for using up those charm packs in your stash.
When you cut your own 5″ squares, they’re also a great scrap stash buster!
This is another of my older tutorials that has stood the test of time. The tutorial provides complete directions for how to make the pattern and for making the cover in various sizes for whatever brand of tissue you buy.
I have made covers for holidays throughout the year with one holiday themed fabric on one side and another holiday on the other so once the first holiday is over, I simply reverse it for the next.
These are awesome gifts for friends, family, neighbors and teachers.
They’re also a thoughtful gift to add to get well gifts.
Another of my older tutorials that remains very popular… it got a complete update with all new photos and more detailed instructions.
If you’re looking for a quick update to your dining room decor, this is the perfect project!
Interfacing that isn’t stored correctly gets wrinkled and difficult, if not impossible to work with.
Find out how I store my interfacing to make sure it stays wrinkle free and easy to use.
If you’re always searching for your thimble, make one or more of these thimble pips to store in it. You’ll never lose your thimble again.
Turning them on end and adding a hanger transforms them into beautiful ornaments. Hide small gifts in plain sight on the tree.
Made with Valentine’s fabrics, the larger ones are big enough to use as a unique gift box for a necklace or pair of earrings.
This has been the most popular sewing tutorial on my blog for the past two years and this year was no exception.
They can be made in various sizes and fabric combinations. The one pictured below was made from charm squares.
And coming in at #1:
Did you know your thread spool may be hiding a secret?
I’ve been sewing since I was young girl and no one… not my grandmother who was an awesome seamstress and not my junior high home ec teacher… told me this!
I hope you’ll join me in the coming year and together we’ll make 2018 the best year yet!
