One-Yard Wonders

In the last Book Review Corner post I asked for suggestions for this Book Review Corner, and there was a request to review One-Yard Wonders.Well, I am happy to oblige.
This is one of the more fun books out there.
The projects range from garments to toys, household necessities to just amazing ideas.
Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins (of Crafty Planet fame) asked only that the designs require only one yard of fabric.

Some of the projects are sweet -
Many are really practical -
And some are just ingenious -
This book also has a special place in the hearts of the Treadlettes, as two of the patterns come from our own.

The lovely and talented Nina Robinson designed a set of baby gifts, you can get a pair of booties, a bib, a blanket and a bag to hold them all from one yard of fabric!

And I (Jess Bandelin) designed a rocket ship toy.

One more fun feature of this book is that each of the designers has a bio in the back, and if you are a blog junkie, like me, you'll find that most of them have a blog to peruse. Fun.

Thanks for the suggestion Cecile!
Please keep those suggestions coming,
The Treadlettes
