The book, "One Yard Wonders" has been around for awhile, heck I have had it for about a year and I am just now getting around to making something out of it. It is a great book with some really neat projects. I love the premise of the book, everything in the book can be made with one yard of fabric or less and for the most part everything is fairly easy to make. It is just a great book that really makes sewing seem like something that is doable for everyone. Check it out if you haven't had a chance.
For the first project I made out of the book, I chose to make the "Cottage Apron." I was asked to make an apron for a friend as a birthday gift. My friend wears aprons a lot, mostly the boring square type aprons that are solid in color, very boring. So I thought I would spice up her apron wardrobe I wanted to make an apron that was more exciting than the typical apron but not so flashy that she won't want to wear it, the cottage apron fit the bill. I hope she likes it.
