Description

"One Yard Wonders" will delight anyone who has ever fallen for fabric - from the novice sewing enthusiast to the lifelong seamstress. The book presents a delightful array of simple, stylish projects that can be made with just a single yard of fabric - from apparel to accessories, from plush toys to pet beds, from baby items to bags, and from home decor to 'Happy Birthday' banners. Projects have a hip, contemporary flair, and most can be completed in a few hours. For each project, the book provides a full-color photograph, easy step-by-step instructions, and simple illustrations. Templates and pattern pieces are also included wherever needed, making this collection of 101 projects the best sewing deal ever. Great fabric demands to be purchased, even if it's just a yard or two at a time. But such tantalizing textiles should never hide in a closet; "One Yard Wonders" promises gift-worthy solutions for that stash of irresistible fabric-store buys. At last, it's time to stop storing and start sewing.

Review quote

Lacking just a bit of the focus on lifestyle and more directed toward stand-alone shots of each project, this quirky and hip sewing book is nonetheless a great follow-up for Butler fans. Here, one yard of fabric is transformed into projects fit for teens and stylish young moms. Bright and cherry pops of color highlight a collection of quilted lunch bags, yoga mat totes, a range of pocket books, a baby tactile blanket, and a doggie bed. A fun collection presented in a cheerful style with easy-to-follow instructions. For both novice and accomplished sewers, this spiral-bound guide offers directions that are precisely, clearly, and buoyantly written as the authors share 101 sewing projects requiring only a yard of fabric, including apparel, toys, accessories (human and pet), dresser organizers, and stuffed animals. For each "recipe", the authors, in well-organized fashion, list necessary materials and then take the reader-crafter through clearly numbered, carefully explained directions to create a successful final product. For each project, too, a pattern schematic is matched on the opposite page with a full-color photograph of the finished project. This is a fundamental crafts book appropriate for most craft collections. "Talk about quality and quantity, One Yard Wonders is an impressive volume of super creative projects all utilizing our favorite scraps and a simple yard of fabric. This book is a keeper!" --Library Journal
