Oliver + S Little Things To Sew: 20 Classic Accessories And Toys For Children

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.” —Holly Ramer, Associated Press

Oliver + S sewing patterns have a fanatical cult following for a good reason: the clothing they make is stylish, clean, elegant, and hits the sweet spot -- the overlap in the Venn diagram where one circle is what kids want to wear and the other is what parents want to sew. Not every parent has the time to sew their child's clothes, though. What's so great about this book is that it covers such a broad spectrum of fun and practical projects: a tiny messenger bag! a baby bjorn-style carrier for a doll or teddy bear! a hat with animal ears! You may not have the time or (think you have) skills to make your daughter a fully lined Jackie O dress with hidden pockets and an invisible zipper (hello, O+S School Photo Dress!), but you can totally make the projects in this book. The key is Liesl Gibson's often-remarked-upon style of instruction. These are not the Vague Patterns sorts of instructions, and you will not mistake them for a haiku. They are explicit, plain, and detailed, and seem to have been written specifically for a person who doesn't have a ton of specialized equipment. These are a great confidence-builder if you think you might want to do more fabric crafts in the future.The book itself is very high-quality. Thick, nice paper, well-bound, with great design and gorgeous photos that make every project look very appealing. The patterns are full size and include seam allowances, and a little box on the first page of each project lists specific skills (sewing curved seam, installing zipper) you'll be taught.
