One-Yard Wonders

One-Yard Wonders is my absolute favorite sewing book! I refer to the “Sewing Fundamentals” section all the time, and I made H’s pinafore for her first birthday and smock for her second from patterns in it. I’m also working on its fabric barn playhouse, and have more fabric from Kathleen I want to use for two of the toddler dresses. I’ve bookmarked the “Charging Station,” “Tabletop Ironing-board Cover” (since I burnt a hole in mine), “All-you-need Sewing Kit,” “Not-Ugly Car Trash Bag,” “Matt’s Map Bag,” “Convertible Craft Apron,” “Growth Chart,” and “Checkers to Go” to make over the next year or so. It’s rare I find a book with so many patterns I really like!

Those are MY feet!

I previously mentioned Tigger loving her bootie rattles because I wanted to post a video of her playing with them — it’s so cute! She hasn’t quite figured out that those are her feet. However, every time we turn on the video camera, she suddenly stops whatever she was doing. So, until we sneak up on her with her noticing, you’ll just get this photo (for which I had to hide the camera behind her while she played!). Thanks, Suzy, for the gift, she loves it!
