Book Review: One-Yard Wonders: 101 Sewing Fabric Projects; Look How Much You Can Make with Just One Yard of Fabric!

Years ago in Framingham, Ma there was this great sewing store called “Fabric Place”. Many days I would spend my entire lunch break searching through their 1 yard remnants table and dreaming about all of the ways I’d use up these gems of fabric.  So when I stumbled upon this book a couple of days ago I had (yes I had) to buy it.  Finally someone who could appreciate the ways of the thrifty shopper.

So what can you do with just 1 yard of fabric? Well it turns out you can make Allot! The book includes patterns and/or directions for making a variety of things using just one yard of fabric. For example you can make a  Newborn Flyaway Jacket , a pleated Girly Skirt , and a Toddler Pinafore Smock. Who knew you could do so much with just one yard!
