Book Review: Little-One Yard Wonders

My little brother introduced me to this series when he bought me a copy of the first book as a Christmas gift.  I fell in love and have kept my eye on the author, so I was thrilled to see this pop up on NetGalley for review.  I won't be doing my typical writing/entertainment value review, since this is actually a crafting/sewing book.  My very favorite sewing projects have all been things that I've made for babies.  It's just such a blessing to me to give something that I spent time making.

This addition to the series was ideal for me, and is one that I'll definitely be picking up to own.  It has easy to follow instructions for making children's clothing, toys, stuffed animals, accessories (diaper bags and changing pads), and even shoes.  The book also comes with ready to use patterns for all of the projects that require them.  And, with each pattern using a yard or less of fabric, it's a great way to make use of remainders (which I'm addicted to buying).

It's a great book for beginners and for those more experienced, since it contains a variety of skill levels, from basic hemming and seaming to more complicated tailoring, although none of the projects are too advanced.  If you've got little ones to sew for, or if you're looking for something to try out in terms of making your own shower gifts, this is a great place to start.

Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a copy to review.
