One Yard Projects

I found a wonderful book called "One-Yard Wonders" by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins. There are 101 projects in here that take only a yard of fabric. There are household items, baby things, toys, accessories, clothing--things you never thought you could do with a yard of fabric!

This is a 'charging station.' As you can see, it's a box with a hole cut in the back that you use for things that need charging (like my DS and my Black-and Decker scissors). It is on a table in my living room and looks so much nicer than the crummy old tray I had there.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who sews! Oh, and the best part--it comes complete with patterns!

You always come up with the great projects. What a marvelous idea!!! It looks decorative rather than cluttered. I might have to look around for this book.

Very cool. Imagine all the things you can make out of items on hand.

Now, that's my kind of book! I like the project you made too. That's a great idea, since everybody has chargers sitting around these days. I know we do. Maybe they have that book at my library.
