day 20 :: 2009 craft books

2009 craft books :: One-Yard Wonders: 101 Sewing Projects; Look How Much You Can Make with Just One Yard of Fabric! by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins

this is another fun post for me because i got to meet one of the authors, that's Rebecca Yaker in the above photo standing next to her famous sock monkey dress ! isn't she cute !?! she's also got a really great sense of humor !

One-Yard Wonders contains 101 sewing projects that only require one yard of fabric, what a great concept ! when you think about it most fabrics cost under $10 a yard, so here you have a book full of projects that you can create each costing at most $10 to make... what a deal ! be sure to check out the One Yard Wonders flickr group.

i met Rebecca at the No Coast Craft-o-rama & she signed my book :)

so far from this book i've sewn the strapless bandeau shorty jumper for C --- i sewed it out of some new fabric that i came across recently & this project was relatively quick & simple (oh, how i love quick & simple!) i think this will make a perfect beach cover-up for this summer...

well, that ends my month long blogging about 2009 craft books, i had fun sharing some of my favorite crafty type books from 2009 & what i created from them --- although i didn't finish making everything that i wanted to from these books, so i will probably blog about a few more 2009 craft book creations in the future...
