2012 Greatest Hits

How was your Christmas? Ours was great, very relaxing. The kids had a ball - Christmas is much more fun when the kids have that complete belief in Santa and the reindeers!

2012 was a great year, both personally and for Sew Delicious. I've loved making things and baking things, and blogging all about it! According to Google Analytics, here are the top five posts my readers have loved the most over the past year.

In fifth place is the my Simple Zip Pouch tutorial- I've had lots of love for this one, especially from sewing beginners who wanted an easy project to get started with. This is also a good one for people who are a bit nervous about sewing zippers.

In fourth place, my Oilcloth Toiletries Bag tutorial. I love these pouches and my girls have one each (the ones in the photo!) and we use them all the time when we travel.

In third place, the ever popular Mad Men inspired Peggy Skirt tutorial.

The runner up as most popular post of 2012 is the Baby Zipper Pouch Tutorial. The baby who received this gift is now a gorgeous and busy little 15 month old and his Mum still uses this pouch for his nappies.

And....drumroll please....The most popular post on Sew Delicious for 2012 was...The DIY Clothing Labels tutorial! Such a popular tutorial that I posted back in January and it has remained popular all year.

So thanks to all my readers for all your support this year!

I thought I'd also share with you my personal favourites from 2012. I think these projects are favourites for me because they symbolise a skill or project that I found hard to master, but I did it successfully and was really pleased with the outcome.

My favourites - ruffle butt nappy pants for baby Pippa, Anna's flannelette pyjama pants (tutorial here), fabric storage basket, and the iPad case for my sister. The iPad case is a bit of a special one - it is really nice to see that my sister uses it every day!

In 2012 I was also really lucky - my lovely husband gave me an overlocker for my birthday and an iPad for Christmas.And somehow managed to keep both gifts a complete surprise! He is always here in the background at Sew Delicious head quarters and is always a big support, so thanks bub, love you heaps!

Have a great New Year's Eve and I'll be back in 2013 with heaps of new projects. Over the holidays my little Janome has been getting a serious work out and I'm looking forward to sharing what I've been up to!


  1. I think I may have to request for your husband to give present lessons to my husband! I got a dressing gown for Christmas; I sent him the link for it expecting him to get me a surprise too! :) Good job he's so handsome.

  2. This is a great post.... I've love these particular tutorials you've given us. Thanks so much. Best wishes for 2013!

  3. Happy New Years!!! Here's hoping 2013 is just as rewarding for you:)

  4. Your clothing labels are STILL on my 'To Do' list, Ros. Maybe I'll get them done in 2013. I bought the ruffle butts pattern after seeing yours. Now I need a little baby girl to sew them for. Happy New Year!!! Looking forward to seeing your creations in 2013.

  5. Hapoy new year, Ros. Thanks for helping me get started, I will be sharing pics of the kids clothes very soon (enjoying my break) I love the ruffle butt pants and I'm gping to be trying the pouch when I get back on a larger scale for a pencil case for Elizabeth :) here's to 2013 xo

  6. I think it was the labels project that I found you Ros which I'm so happy about. Looking forward to many more lovely projects and watching those lovely girls of yours grow.

    Happy New Year lovey!

  8. Right, you have inspired me! I really need to get up the courage to get out my sewing machine that hubby bought for me last xmas and start using it!!!

  9. Nice round-up, Ros! It sure has been a big year. Hope you're having a nice break. I'm getting some Raccoon Bar vibes...
