The O Tunic

{2011 Craft Books}

:: Fabric-by-Fabric One-Yard Wonders: Cottons, Knits, Voiles, Corduroy, Fleece, Flannel, Home Dec, Oilcloth, Wool, and Beyond by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins

:: one yard projects are a great concept ~ when you think about it most fabrics cost under $10 per yard, so here you have a book of 101 projects that you can create each costing at most $10 to make... such a deal !

:: it's thicker than the first book One-Yard Wonders

:: I was able to attend the release party & snap some photos of some of the many projects featured in the book

:: I sewed the "O" Tunic, available is sizes 2T-5T, this one is 4T & very generous in size ~ it's a little big on my daughter, she'll grow into it, but for now we'll roll up the sleeves

:: the fabric (which reminds me of Liberty of London floral fabric) is a cotton voile called "Darling Clementine" by Timeless Treasures Fabrics (it cost $4.50 for 1 yd of fabric to make this tunic)

Hoping you have a crafty Thursday !
