Fabric-by-Fabric One-Yard Wonders
The authors of One-Yard Wonders are back with another all-new collection of 101 sewing projects contributed by designers and sewing bloggers across North America. This time, the projects are organized by fabric type -- from home dec to knits, wool to flannels, corduroy to cottons, you’ll learn how to make the most of each fabric’s unique characteristics. And since each project uses just a single yard of fabric, it’s easy and affordable to experiment with something you’ve never tried before. Waterproof coated cottons are perfect for a gym bag, knit jersey whips up quickly into a ruffle scarf or sassy dress, corduroy makes a sturdy tote, and lightweight cotton voile is just right for a little girl’s smocked sundress. Each project comes with step-by-step illustrated instructions and a complete cutting layout, and all required pattern pieces are included. Apartment Therapy says, “This is perfect for us since we’re often so smitten with a fabric that we buy a small amount of it just in case we think of something to use it for.” Library Journal calls Fabric-by-Fabric “A quirky and hip sewing book.”
