    I’m excited to see how this turns out! I have a folding chair at my desk and we use my buffet table to charge things so it’d be nice to have a little basket to put on there. I’ve got this book but I didn’t really get around to planning for these two projects yet. :)

    I really love that you’re doing these projects. (Almost) all the gratification and none of the work!

    I could use the dresser organizer and charging station around my house. I love the Greenfield Hill fabrics also. I’ve already added the book to my “wish list.”

    What a great project! I’ve seen the book cover but didn’t really know what the projects were … now I think I may have to further investigate this book!! Thanks!

    The desk organiser looks fantastic – in fact it would be perfect for my kitchen bench. I can see I am going to have to get a copy of this book! I love the deep blues in the Denyse Schmidt material too.

    I love the chair cover. We use those chairs when we have extra people over and how much nicer would they look with covers on them!

    I can’t wait to see the finished slipcover. I have a folding chair at my sewing machine (I know, not the most comfortable), and I’d love to cover it with something pretty from the Kumari Garden collection :-)

    I wish I wasn’t so overloaded with other sewing commitments because I would have loved to join in on this sew along!

    HA-HA, maybe since they’re “One Yard Wonders” I can start a quilt I’ll actually finish. dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

    Thank you for the link Chrissy. I had no clue. Glad they own up to the mistakes and put a free fix out there for us.

    I’m starting the sew-along this week since I had already made my own versions of last week’s projects long before the book was published :)

    One Yard Wonders is awesome. I purchased it 4-5 months ago and keep opening it for different projects. My next wonder will be the polyester stuffed animals. Woo Hoo!

    You know…I am glad I am a week behind in starting my covered cork board because now I can coordinate the fabric with a chair cover!!!

    What a great idea. Projects that only require a single yard will give many opportunities to create lovely and affordable gifts!
