Fabric by Fabric One Yard Wonders

5 out 5

Fabric by Fabric One Yard Wonders by Rebecca Yaker, and Patricia Hoskins, the second One Yard Wonders book by them covering many types of fabrics, is simply fabulous. The range of patterns for little people and big people, for yourself as well as a plethora of gift ideas, is amazing. When I say gift, I mean after I make one for myself. I lost count of how many projects I wanted to make. In fact when I first started reviewing this book, I had a momentary lapse and ran out to the fabric store to pick up a copy so I could make a few of the baby items since we have two new grandbabies. Silly me, I said as I realized only after I was there that I was reviewing a book that wasn't due out until December.

This book will definitely be mine before Christmas, I just hate I won't have time to make any of the items for presents. Well, I can get ready for all the birthdays.

The book has great references for fabric, needle use according to the fabric, a glossary, and is in sections by the different types of fabric. There is a bio of each of the pattern designers, which is great since many times there are other patterns that they have created. This book will be an instant best seller.
