Fabric by Fabric One-Yard Wonders by Rebecca Yaker, Patricia Hoskins

Fabulous Fabulous Fabric One-Yard Wonders

The best-selling authors of One-Yard Wonders are back with another all-new amazing collection of 101 sewing projects. Responding to the increasingly diverse range of fabric weights and types now available, Fabricby-Fabric One-Yard Wonders is organized by fabric type. From home dec to knits, wool to flannels, corduroy to cottons, these patterns show how to make the most of each fabric’s unique characteristics. 

Sewers will love the affordability and ease of these patterns, each requiring just one yard of fabric. There’s something for every skill level and interest. Waterproof coated cotton fabrics are perfect for a gym bag or set of bicycle panniers, wool makes a warm cap for the outdoor enthusiast, knit jersey whips up quickly into a ruffle scarf or sassy dress, corduroy makes a sturdy farmers’ market tote, lightweight cotton voile is perfect for a little girl’s smocked sundress, and cozy pink fleece makes an irresistible mother pig and piglets stuffed toy set. The perfect blend of fabric and function is evident throughout this wide-ranging collection.

Every project is shown in a full-color photograph, accompanied by detailed step-by-step instructions and illustrations and a complete cutting layout. All required pattern pieces are included in a secure envelope inside the book. 

Honestly, the projects are Ah-mazing! They really are. Very very inspiring. And the sheer amount of projects that can be done is astounding! The photographs are high quality and the instructions are clear and understandable. I only wish the ARC had the patterns that I could have printed and then experimented with. I mean what am I gonna do without any patterns, you tell me?
