Fabric-by-Fabric One Yard Wonders Blog Tour & Giveaway!!

Hey you guys!  Did you love One Yard Wonders, the book that showed you what great projects you could make out of one yard of fabric?  And now, the sequel is here.  More projects for you, using one measly little yard of all different types of fabrics.  AND…if that weren’t tempting enough, there is a project included in the book made by moi.  (invoking Miss Piggy with the “moi” bit)   I fashioned a  pattern using one yard of double gauze, some ribbon, crochet trim and wide elastic to make a high-waisted skirt.  I see cute versions of this skirt everywhere, but with high price tags.  Here’s my version….

You can make this skirt in about an hour.  So, if you’re going out and have nothing to wear, you can sew up the finishing touches while your date fixes you a drink.

Convinced that you must have this book?  I thought so.  Well lucky you!  You could win a copy for your very own self in my giveaway.   Here’s the particulars…

1. For one entry to win, leave a comment here up until midnight on Christmas eve, the 24th.

2. For another entry to win, sign up to follow my blog.

3. AND, if you blog about my giveaway…another chance goes to you.

Good luck to everyone and if you get a chance, take a peek at the other lovely and talented bloggers who helped make this book amazing.
