That sounds familiar, right?
This is actually Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskin’s follow up to one of my favorite books, One Yard Wonders. The original focused mainly on quilting fabric from what I understand. This one is divided into chapters for the following:
Chapter 1: Fabric Fundamentals
Chapter 2: Lightweight Cottons
Chapter 3: Quilting-Weight Cottons
Chapter 4: Home Dec Fabrics
Chapter 5: Flannel
Chapter 6: Woven Pile Fabrics
Chapter 7: Coated Fabrics
Chapter 8: Fleece
Chapter 9: Knits
Chapter 10: Wool
Again, they have made a great hardcover book with a spiral you can see on the back to help it fold open while you work.
The first thing I noticed is that this book is much thicker than its predecessor. The patterns at the front of the book are very substantial.
I found this page invaluable. It is a fabric cheat sheet that tells you very specifically how to work with every type of fabric listed in the book. It even included the best way to mark and press the fabric! I see me using this as a reference often as I enjoy working with new types of fabric, but use a lot of trial and error to get things right.
I had to show an example of how well the directions for the projects are laid out. The directions are always spot on as well.
I love this cute travel set!
What really sold me was a review by Dixie DIY of the Panties that are pictured above from the Panties and Camisole set done in knits. I have been wanting to try underwear, but just haven’t gotten around to it. She convinced me! She did at least one more project out of this book she reviewed as well that was cute.
Final Verdict: I knew this book would be a sure thing because I loved the first one, but I am even more pleased with it than I imagined. Expect to see some projects from me in the future.
