I've had the book One Yard Wonders checked out from the library for a couple of months now and I finally got around to making a few things out of it. This is an excellent book of simple sewing projects that are actually useful (I'm asking for my own copy for Christmas). Since we have a couple of road trips coming up for the holidays, I decided to tackle a few sewing projects this week that might be useful for road-tripping. Here is what I accomplished.
A pretty purple cover for my neck pillow in two contrasting fabrics:
This was not from the book; I made my own pattern. This was my second attempt at making a cover for my neck pillow - the first one I made was too small. This was also my first attempt at sewing a zipper which was rather painful. I think I ripped out more stitches than I actually sewed but I eventually finished it.
A trash bag for the car (this is from the book):
A bed pocket to hold my Kindle, books, etc. (also from book):
I'm all set for holiday road trips now!
