So far I've only made one thing from this book because I just got it.

What I liked most about all of the projects here is how many are great gift ideas and things people would actually use.
Rhianna Walker
I think it's a great idea to have a book where there are so many cute projects to make out of just one yard of fabric.

A decent enough book, but sight unseen, I was really disappointed that there are sooo many projects for babies and children. There's nothing wrong with that, it's just that I don't have any little ones to sew for right now. I'd say 85% of the projects are for kids. Wish I had looked at it in a book store before adding it to my wish list.

I loved the original book so I thought I'd like this one too but I was pretty disappointed. Many of the projects are repeats from the previous book. They just changed the dimensions a little and made it in a different fabric. Also, the majority of the projects are baby/toddler items. Based on the titles in the table of contents, it looked like there would be more items for adults and older kids. Most of the items for adults were wristlets and bags that were nearly identical to the ones in the 1st book.

If you don't have the original book, you'll probably like this one. But don't waste your money if you already have the other one.

I've really been enjoying this book so far. I've made a variation on the Bees Knees bag [...], the Cozy Comfort Set, Barnaby Bear [...] and the Gazillions of Gathers Pillow [...]. There are tons of other projects that I'm excited to make! There seem to be many reviewers who think there are too many patterns for kids - I don't necessarily agree. There are plenty of patterns for little ones, but many things I want for myself, too. I checked it out from the local library before deciding that I wanted to own a copy.

Format: Hardcover-spiral
I was hoping to love this book and work my way through many projects; however, I am disappointed. A HUGE part of the book is dedicated to children's projects or projects that I have seen many places. I worked on a project today and was so disappointed in the detail. There were almost NO diagrams or pictures showing the various steps and the instructions were often difficult to follow. I have been sewing for 25 years - all I could think was "how difficult it would be for a new sewist!" I am glad I checked this one out of the library and it will be returned quickly. I love kids, but there are not enough non-kid projects and the lack of detailed instructions and diagrams/pictures makes this a book I can't recommend. On the plus side, I love the spiral binding and that the book lays flat. I like that the patterns are in a folder in the back of the book.

Format: Hardcover-spiral
This is a compilation of projects that can be sewn using one single yard of fabric. It's spiral bound in a hard cover with box attached on the inside cover which holds pattern pieces. Some of the pattern pieces for some of the projects you'll draft by hand. Those have simple shapes and measurements.

The nice thing about one yard patterns is that it's a great way to use a yard of great fabric. It starts with a basic introduction to the supplies you'll need, and most of the projects are done using just a straight stitch on a standard sewing machine.

The projects are separated by fabric type.

Lightweight cottons- like voile and lawn
Quilting weight cotton- one of the easiest to find and inexpensive options for sewing
Home decorator fabrics- these are heavier woven fabrics
Flannel
Woven pile fabrics- things like velvet and corduroy
Coated fabrics- like oilcloth
Fleece
Knits
Wool
So whatever your favorite fabric type is, there is a project for it. The projects collected are wonderful, there is a lot of variation. Many very cute purses and bags, but also skirts, tops, hats, organizers, home decorating, and accessories. The projects covers a lot of skill levels with clear instructions so if you haven't tried a technique before like ruffling, smocking, pleating or placing zippers, you should be able to follow the instructions to do so.

While there are a lot of projects meant for children, there are also several clothing patterns for adults. My daughter likes the Urban Wabbit Hunting Cap best, my favorite pattern is the quilter airliner bag with it's retro feel and decorative quilt stitching. There are also patterns for adult shirts, skirts, lots of children's clothes and toys.

I ordered this book because I like to make quick and easy things for my friends and family. While this book does have some cute projects, I agree with the other reviewer that there are wayyyyy too many projects for kids. Based on the cover I assumed there would be a wide variety, but that hasn't been the case.

Also, some of the patterns really aren't needed. Some of the projects ask you to use a pattern piece to cut a rectangle, and then a french curve to alter that rectangle. Why not just have the pattern piece already have that curve in it? Or just give me the dimensions of the rectangle in the instructions so I don't have to bother with cutting the pattern piece.

While I do have some complaints, I have made a few things from the book and been happy with them. But if I had known that the majority of the book was kids/baby stuff, I probably would have skipped it.

I love the book and having bought the first one I knew I would like this one as well.
I do find a lot of the project cute but I was hoping they would provide patterns for
bigger kids or stuff for teen not just toddlers. I don't have toddler anymore. Even if we needed to use
more than one yard. Between the two books we have too many bag patterns that are some what similar.
I don't personally care for pet stuff but i know some do.

I like the extra info on needle and fabric types. Helpful for a beginner.

I hope this review is read by the authors so they can take notes on the specifics that customers are
like and not liking. Appreciate their efforts anyway.
