1, 2, 3 Sew: Build Your Skills with 33 Simple Sewing Projects

1, 2, 3 Sew: Build Your Skills with 33 Simple Sewing Projects  Cover

 

Staff Pick

Every so often a sewing book is published that exhibits the seemingly difficult to achieve trifecta of craft guide success: the instructions are clear, the skill level is accurate, and the projects are practical and stylish. 1, 2, 3 Sew is the book that I wish had existed when I decided I wanted to learn how to stitch. The designs are refreshing in their simplicity: no tassels, no extraneous pockets, no overdone embellishments. The book's jacket copy states that usability was valued over everything else, and it shows. You will actually want to make and use these projects, and you'll be proud to give them as gifts.

Review-A-Day

"If you consider yourself an avid consumer of instructional craft books, you've probably figured out by now that most of them harbor a dark secret under their attractive packaging and glossy pages. There is almost always at least one fatal flaw preventing them from being 'The Only Book on Needlework/Butter-carving/Candle-making You Will Ever Need.' Claims like this are invariably lies. Ninety-five percent of DIY guides will fail you in some way, and that will compel you to buy more DIY guides to compensate for their shortcomings."

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

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 d cor 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.
