One Yard Wonders

One Yard Wonders

What a great idea for a book! One Yard Wonders by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins is chock-a-block full of great sewing projects, all using a single yard of fabric. 

There are 101 projects in this book, with beautiful photographs, and simple, clear instructions. Make a kite, or a cover for your file cabinet, a dresser organizer/charging station, stuffed toys, a dog bed, cute clothes for kids, tote bags … the list goes on.

If you’re looking for ideas for sewing small, useful items for yourself or your loved ones this book could keep you busy for a long time.
I had a hard time choosing a project, but finally decided on the Convertible Craft Apron – an apron for a toddler that converts to a tote bag. I chose an Amy Butler print and you can see the finished result below (no cute toddlers at hand to model, but you get the idea.)

What will I be sewing this week? I’ve been busy cutting fabric for the upcoming Gifts From The Heart quilt show in Ottawa, and fell in love with another Amy Butler print, this one from her Love collection. Don’t forget to check back next week to see what I decide to do with it!

    Hey I like the apron….funnily enough I made an apron this weekend from the blue version of the love fabric you have chosen!! Might have to try and get the One Yard Wonder book as that apron would be ideal for my daughter. She wants a new one now I’ve made myself one.

    Look forward to seeing what you do with the love fabric.
