First let's talk about the book. If you aren't familiar with the format of the first book, which is packed with oodles of fun and simple projects you can make with one yard of fabric, this one is similar. Here's what you'll find:
The book is divided in sections by fabric type: lightweight cottons, quilting-weight cottons, home dec fabrics, flannel, woven pile fabrics, coated fabrics, fleece, knits, and wool. There are oodles of projects for each fabric type!
There is also a helpful glossary at the back of the book that will go over all the different terms you might come across during your reading. Even experienced sewists might find this to be a helpful refresher when in the middle of a project!
Now I just have to share my excitement!
There are a few bloggy friends/acquaintances who have projects featured in the book as well, including Anna from Noodlehead:
Also Lorraine from Ikat Bag (I <3 her writing! And projects!):
