The 10 Most Popular Projects of 2020

The New Year is almost here! I thought it would be fun to take a quick review of the 10 Most Popular Projects of 2020 from the blog.

Before we get started, I want to say a big thank you for following along. It’s so fun and fulfilling for me to create projects and teach. I’m very thankful for your enthusiasm, support, and kindness.

In this list, you’ll see a couple of themes, home DIYs are always popular, especially cushions of any kind. Also, this year has obviously been unique, so some of the most visited tutorials were about making fabric face masks and accouterments. I am so grateful that those posts helped people; around the world create their own face masks to stay safe and healthy. Still, I hope we can get to the point to not need masks in 2021 and find creativity in other projects!☺️

Below are the 10 Most Popular Projects of 2020, from 10 to 1. Enjoy!
