One - Yard Wonders: 101 Fabulous Fabric Projects

Last fall Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Haskins of CraftyPlanet requested submissions for a book they were compiling called One Yard Wonders, so I submitted two patterns. I was so excited to learn that they had excepted my patterns, and even more excited when I saw them on the cover (dog bed and lunch bag). The book is due out in October and can be pre-ordered at Amazon.

To celebrate the release of the book, Storey Publishing is having a giveaway of fabric. You can also see a preview of patterns on the One Yard Wonders Facebook page.

Can you tell I'm excited?
