One-Yard Wonders

Last week a friend of mine recommended One-Yard Wonders (101 sewing projects for 1 yd of fabric) and I knew it was right up my alley. I was so excited to head to the local bookstore and check it out. I bought it right away and started planning what I was going to make. I headed over to Hobby Lobby to use up the gift card that my grandma got me for Christmas (she knows me so well) and I purchased this cute fabric for 30% off. I was supposed to get 1 1/2" rings for the bag but could only find D rings. When I got home I didn't like them so I improvised and used key rings and they look pretty cute.

The bag took less than 2 hours start to finish and I LOVE IT. There is elastic on the bottom to make it gathered and also along the top to help close the bag a little. I will add some bling to the strap hanging in the middle because it looks weird to me and I need some weight on it to keep the bag closed. For any of you who like to sew and want some great ideas, be sure to check out this book - they have a little bit of everything!


  1. Oh wow. Your bag is darling. Love it!

  2. i JUST ordered this book last week! I received a new sewing machine for Christmas and ordered this book to accompany it! I hope that it's pretty user friendly! LOVE THE BAG! Cannot wait to get my book in the mail!

  3. Love that book! I got it for Christmas last year. I have made several of the Folklore Bag...I heart it :) I also made one of the changing pads and the craft apron.

  4. Have this bag cut out, but that's as far as I have gotten so far. I had to read the directions many times before I got the elastic on the bottom thing. Now that I have seen yours, I am inspired to finish mine! Thanks!
