Fabric-by-Fabric One Yard Wonders Blog Tour & Giveaway!!

December 21, 2011 at 8:42 am 64 comments

Hey you guys!  Did you love One Yard Wonders, the book that showed you what great projects you could make out of one yard of fabric?  And now, the sequel is here.  More projects for you, using one measly little yard of all different types of fabrics.  AND…if that weren’t tempting enough, there is a project included in the book made by moi.  (invoking Miss Piggy with the “moi” bit)   I fashioned a  pattern using one yard of double gauze, some ribbon, crochet trim and wide elastic to make a high-waisted skirt.  I see cute versions of this skirt everywhere, but with high price tags.  Here’s my version….

You can make this skirt in about an hour.  So, if you’re going out and have nothing to wear, you can sew up the finishing touches while your date fixes you a drink.

Convinced that you must have this book?  I thought so.  Well lucky you!  You could win a copy for your very own self in my giveaway.   Here’s the particulars…

1. For one entry to win, leave a comment here up until midnight on Christmas eve, the 24th.

2. For another entry to win, sign up to follow my blog.

3. AND, if you blog about my giveaway…another chance goes to you.

Good luck to everyone and if you get a chance, take a peek at the other lovely and talented bloggers who helped make this book amazing.

    I am looking forward to seeing the book – I’m sure it has a lot of great projects. After all, not all projects have to be a quilt -nice to make something in a short time with just a little fabric for a change!

  • 4. Thirza  |  December 21, 2011 at 9:41 am

    I love ‘One yard wonders No.1′, so I would be crazy not to try and win No.2 ! And through whose blog would it be better then through yours, m’dear! You must be proud as punch to have been included!

    Count me in!

    I’m still new to sewing, and these seem like a manageable way to begin doing bigger projects. Thanks for this opportunity!

  • 8. poppyinpink  |  December 21, 2011 at 10:19 am
