Fabric sighting in 1,2,3 Sew

Ellen Luckett Baker of The Long Thread just sent over a copy of her new book 1,2,3 Sew which comes out next month. My Fireworks fabric is used for the craft caddy project. Love it!

The book comes with pattern sheets and instructions for making accessories and projects for the home—many of which are embellished with pleats, decorative machine stitching, applique, or stenciling. I've got my eye on a pleated satchel, reversible girl's skirt, and a stenciled cosmetic bag. The book design itself is pretty adorable with its rounded corners, charming fonts, and lovely photography, too. You can order it here from Amazon.

Wow... cool! Your fabric in there AND the book. Too bad you don't like to sew. Maybe you'd better send me the book. ;)

Well... I might have to try the cosmetic bag first... :)

So nice to see that the pattern is lined up! I think that's maybe old-fashioned of me.

Congratulations! That's great!

I've got the book pre-ordered. Can't wait until it arrives in my mailbox!

Looks like a great book, and it has such a great fabric. I got a one of the chair covers in your fabric and it made my whole living room complete.

Chandeen, that's great to hear. Sarah, thanks for the link!
