SMS Giveaway Day~ One Yard Little Wonders


It's giveaway week!  I have enjoyed SMS Giveaway days for several years and am happy to share a special prize with you.  This year, I was a contributor to the newest Little One Yard Wonders book.  Storey Publishing is offering a copy of the Little One Yard Wonders book to a US reader!


I contributed the Easy Dolman Top or Tunic.  This is an easy top for sizes 4-12 using only 1 yard of fabric.  It was based on a tutorial I had previously published here to draft your own easy dolman top. Feedback has been great for the pattern and book.
Check out the LOYW book for 101 sewing patterns for babies and kids.  Even if you don't have young kids, the book has great patterns for gifts and showers.  

To enter this giveaway, please use the Rafflecopter widget and leave a comment with your email address below.  If you have time, I always appreciate links to favorite tutorials.  US residents, only, please.  Winner will be randomly chosen 12/12/14 at 5 pm PST.  Find all the Giveaway Day posts at Sew, Mama, Sew.  Thanks to Storey Publishing for providing a copy for my readers!

Hard to choose a favorite tutorial! So I will just share the one I happen to have open right now... I made a bunch of these last years as gift bags for Christmas, and will probably do the same this year, only smaller.

Oh Dear. I started sewing in the late 1950s and so tutorials aren't my thing. I do follow some once in awhile, but once is usually enough.

Congrats on being included in the book.
