Home sewers love to dress the children in their lives in garments they have hand-crafted. No one understands this better than Liesl Gibson, who is both a mom and the founder of Oliver + S, a sewing pattern company known for its contemporary yet classically sensible kids’ designs, its precise, easy-to-follow instructions, and its charming paper doll–inspired packaging. In Oliver + S Little Things to Sew, you’ll find 20 acessories for children, such as a hat with bear ears, scarf, vest, tutu, art smock, backpack, and quilt—all impeccably photographed by Laurie Frankel. The book includes two full-size pattern sheets and, as an added bonus, two cardstock paper dolls that can be dressed with “clothing” cut from the book’s jacket—a little something extra to keep young ones occupied while grownups stitch new items for their wardrobes! 

Praise for Oliver + S Little Thigns to Sew:

“Making a bucket hat probably isn’t on anyone’s bucket list, but maybe it should be. The reversible bucket hat in the book Oliver + S Little Things to Sew (STC Craft, 2011) is classic, cute and comfortable. And author Liesl Gibson maintains that making it is a treat for grown-ups as well as the young recipients.”

LOVE this book! I've made the Cozy Winter Hood I can't tell you how many times. Felt, velvet, faux fur even! I keep checking it out and I keep it late because I love it so much. I should just buy it, I've already paid enough library fines on it to pretty much buy my own copy.

Great patterns. Great instructions. Great pics. Great book all around.

I am smitten with the tutu and red riding hood! The pattern for mittens is so easy and brilliant, you can make a dozen in just a few hours!

Unfortunately, Pattern Sheet #2 was missing from this book when I checked it out. This is the sheet that contains the Teddy Bear Carrier pattern, among others!
