My top 9 tutorials and patterns of 2021

These crochet bows were one of the first tutorials I posted in 2021, and they were a hit!

The no-sew Valentine's day heart pockets were also one of the most viewed posts: 

I made these reusable gift bags for Valentine's day too, but the idea can be replicated for any other holiday or celebration!

This Tea Wallet project started as an original DIY gift idea, but I loved it so much I even turned it into a video tutorial you can find on my YouTube channel too:

This DIY crochet soap saver was another hit, both at the blog and on Pinterest. 


Making pom-poms is fun. Making them with the kids is even better. This pom-pom family was one of our favorite activities during lockdown and is a great idea to keep children entertained:

2021 was the year I decided to start sharing small cross stitch patterns regularly on the blog. This Rainbow Cross Stitch chart was the most popular by far:

The Beads and Tassel keychains were another of 2021's most successful tutorials:

And finally, another hit in the cross stitch department, which also happens to be one of my favorites:

A huge thank you to everyone who visited and shared these and all the other posts throughout the year, and here's to another 12 months filled with many wonderful tutorials.

Happy 2022!
