{ one yard wonders }

Last night when my dad came home, he brought something fun for my sisters and I.

One Yard Wonders.

I am so excited!
I think the concept of this book is really neat. I always try to use as little fabric as possible, but I want the project to turn out amazing, too. Now I have 101 to choose from!

Yes, last night I sat down and flipped through the entire book, writing down all the projects I wanted to try. Now I just have to find some fabulous fabric!
Some of the projects look harder than others, but I thought the directions looked fairly clear.
Of course, I tend to ignore rules/directions when sewing, so we'll see how it goes. :)

What about you? Is this a book you have? One you would want to use? Tell me about it!

I saw this book on Amazon and thought it looked really cool. Trouble is, I don't have a sewing machine and I don't know how to sew anyway! ;-)

I do hope you'll share your results when you try some projects from this!

I don't have it, but it is a book I would love to have, I really need to start reading up and books like these so that I can put my sewing machine, tons of thread and piles of fabric to use!

Meg said...

Okay, I just ordered it from Amazon, I can't wait to get it!!

That book looks so cute! Maybe I'll try some sewing this summer. I love looking at cute fabric, but I just don't know what to do with it!
