CRAFT ACTION:

Ellen Baker‘s blog The Long Thread is full of so much goodness.  Ellen lives in the USA with her husband and two daughters.  She has been blogging for over 4 years now and it just gets better and better.  Her debut book, 1,2,3 Sew, published by Chronicle Books, is available now. Ellen also writes a holiday craft column each month for AlphaMom, so check it out if you get a chance. I‘m totally digging the tiny vinyl!

Sewing is as easy as 1-2-3! In this creative teaching book, craft blogger Ellen Luckett Baker offers a wholly unique approach to sewing: she presents projects in groups of three, each building on the techniques used in the project before. Baker shows, for example, how to sew a glasses case, then build on those skills to create a zippered pouch, and from there, make a more advanced cosmetics bag. There are 33 delightful projects in all, ranging from clothing to dcor and accessories. With easy-to-follow instructions, how-to illustrations, and 12 patterns tucked into an enclosed envelope, 1, 2, 3 Sew is an essential resource for beginning and intermediate sewers alike.
