fabric-by-fabric one yard wonders book: a sneak peak and a giveaway

I recently received a copy of Fabric-by-Fabric One Yard Wonders  by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins in the mail from Storey Publishing {more on that later}. This book is huge! It contains 101 sewing projects {106 if you purchase your book at Barnes and Noble} organized by fabric type...everything from cottons to oilcloth and everything in between. You'll also find useful information about the various fabric types available and how best to work with them. The book includes illustrated instructions, cutting layouts, pattern pieces, and all projects use just a single yard of fabric! If you're into sewing at all, you'll definitely want to add this book to your Christmas wish list.







I was contacted by the authors several months ago and asked if I'd like to contribute a project to the book to be included in the Barnes and Noble bonus section. Of course I said yes! I was more than thrilled to be a part of this awesome book. There's my project below...a meal planning organizer with tips to make it using laminated cotton/oil cloth.
