I was lucky enough to get a copy of the new Fabric-by-Fabric One-Yard Wonders book from the publisher not too long ago and I just wanted to share a bit about it with y'all in case you needed to buy a last minute Christmas gift for a certain crafty someone...maybe that's you?
I own the first One-Yard Wonders book and I loved it like many of you. But can I just tell you that the second book is even better! First off, this book has a ton of projects (101 to be exact!) that use a variety of different types of materials, not just cottons but knits, voiles, corduroy, oil cloth, home decor, and more. And the book is broken up into sections of projects that work with each one, ahhh, it's organized so everything is easy to find, me likey a lot. Secondly, it comes with a whole slew of patterns in one of those handy dandy pattern pocket holders in the front of the book. YAY! I love when a book includes patterns.
There are so many great projects, some that I have dog-eared for my To-Do-Now list include: 'The Camp Shirt'. So adorable and perfect for my little Noah.
The 'Work in Comfort' Travel Set but mainly the lap desk. I have been wanting to make a lap desk for Noah and Penelope to use in the car. Especially to use during our long cross-country drives when we visit my family.
I absolutely love these 'Pajama Boots'...how cute are they! If I didn't run out of time, these would have made great Christmas gifts for a few people I know. Do you think Ryan Gosling would make me a pair?
I noticed you dog-eared those Pajama Boots in the new One-Yard Wonders book so yesterday I took a day off of work to make them for you."
And lastly, I think this 'Umbrella Redo' is so cool. I really want to make raincoats with matching umbrellas for Penelope and Eloise. They would be so cute splashing around in puddles this spring in a cute laminated cotton print.
Well, I hope you enjoyed a peek into this great book. I think it would be the perfect addition to your crafty library and with 101 projects in it there will always be something to work on!
