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."

This book is my teacher!! I could really make things by following the step by step instruction as a beginner! Hat, smock, and tutu... It shows how much fabric is needed for making each item inside the book, so I know how much fabric to buy. Very clear instruction and patterns of different sizes. Highly recommended for everyone, even a beginner! I ended up buying this book for myself.

I've tried the mittens pattern in 3 sizes to use up some scrap bits of fleece -- easy and quick! And the mitts fit all 3 kids quite well. Making plans to try other patterns in here soon.
