Book Review & GIVEAWAY - One-Yard Wonders


101 Sewing Projects
One-Yard Wonders
by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins
I was sent this marvelous book to review from Story Publishing- it is really more of a treasury for us fabric collectors. I tend to buy just a yard of a new fabric when I'm going on a shopping spree and then end up regretting it because I don't always have as much fabric as I need. Well, no more worries!! I LOVE all these delicious projects and I know you will, too!!

Here's a small sample of the offerings:

Kids Convertible Craft Apron

Girls Flouncy Bag

Quilted Lunch Bag

All-You-Need Sewing Kit

Kitschy Kitchen Apron

Festive Flag Banners

I'm happy to have the publisher send out a copy of this fun sewing book to ONE WINNER.

Hi Shawnee! I'm fist? Let's see. From what you've shown, the sewing kit would be the first thing I would like to make. I love how it holds the thread spools. It would make a great gift.
I follow you here and on Flirty Apron Swap. And I just cast my vote for your blog on topmommyblogs.
This book sure would come in handy as I also tend to buy a yard of fabric when I find something I love but don't know what I'm going to make. Thanks for a chance (or is it 4 chances?) to win this book.

It's so hard to choose just one project! - I love bags and I have a new love of aprons! I'd have to go with the Flouncy Bag first and then the Kitschy Kitchen Apron.
I've been wanting this book!
Thanks for the chance to win.

The Quilted Lunch Bag would be a great project for me, as I pack my lunch for work almost every day.

Helena said...
