Title: Little One Yard Wonders - Irresistible Clothes, Toys and Accessories You Can Make For Babies and Kids. Author: Patricia Hoskins & Rebecca Yaker Published: 5-14-14 Publisher: Story Publishing Pages: 360 Genre: Crafts, Hobbies and Home Sub Genre: Needlecrafts & Textiles Crafts; Fashion; Sewing ISBN: 9787612121246 Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley My Rating: 5 Stars . I always have fabric left over as I usually by extra in case of mistake in cutting or stitching. So Little One Yard Wonders is perfect for using up all those little pieces which sometimes is not enough to use for other crafts such as quilts. Many of us know or know of someone who is either expecting or has recently had a baby. Perhaps you work with local hospitals, shelters or churches to provide items for newborns, babies, and toddlers of families in need due to finances or perhaps fire. Little One Yard Wonders provides some beautiful ideas on what to do with those pieces. Some require less than a yard or you can combine coordinating pieces to make a dress or outfit. There are patterns for use in the kitchen, nursery, even layette items. With clear concise instructions and photos to guide you will enjoy all the wonderful items you can create for yourself or to give as gifts. My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
