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.

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 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.

I am a big fan of reviewing a craft/sewing book AFTER projects were attempted! So, I am pleased to say that I have in fact made the following from this book:
Knight in Shining Armor (p.378) I actually made it in wool suiting and cut extra for seam allowance and it looks fabulous!
Monster Backpack (p.219) fun, easy and everyone thinks it's awesome! (wish I could take credit!)
Fold Over Bag (p.140) (made 2...super easy and cute!)
Passport cover & Bag Tag (p.131)... no problems.
Retro bag (p.50)... sewed up in an afternoon because I needed a bag that night!...really nice!
Smocked sundress (p.36)... gingham made smocking easy and fun!
Pretend sewing machine (p.382)...made it as a pillow for a sewing girl's bed! Easy!
Plastic Bag holder (p.154)... made a few... good gift.
Party Lamp Shade (p.42)...saved an old lamp!
Gathered pillow (25)...I actually changed the fabric recommendation to velveteen with good results.
...and I have many other projects bookmarked.
There is so much in this book and full scale patterns are provided for everything. How can you miss!
You probably won't want to make everything in this book and I know I won't, however, it is worth the purchase price for me even if I just make the 10 projects listed above!
It is with pleasure that I give this book 5 stars and also recommend the authors' 1st book "One Yard Wonders".
