One-Yard Wonders (Storey Publishing, 2009), by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins, is the perfect book for inspiration and projects that use those single yards of beautiful fabric just waiting to be transformed. From household items like oven mitts and shopping bags to gifts, toys, and apparel, there are projects to suit any whim. The following gardening apron project is from chapter 4, “Craft Organization.”

Whatever your craft — sewing, gardening, woodworking — this is the perfect handy half-apron for all your needs. Make it a tool belt for your domestic-repair needs, a gardening apron when it’s time to plant your bulbs, or a sewing apron for your next project!
