Oliver + S Little Things to Sew : 20 Classic Accessories and Toys for Children
Oliver + S Little Things to Sew is a collection of 20 accessories and other small sewing projects to make for children from Oliver + S, a successful new sewing pattern company headed by popular designer Liesl Gibson. The company Oliver + S is known for blending its fresh, modern style with a classic sensibility, as well as for its detailed, easy to follow pattern instructions. Projects in Oliver + S: Little Things to Sew include whimsical yet practical items for children, such as a hat, scarf, vest, tutu, art smock, backpack, messenger bag and quilt. Two pullout pattern sheets provide sewers with all of the instruction they need to be successful. In addition, the Oliver + S LIttle Things To Sew package includes two cardstock paper dolls and illustrations of projects from the book for the paper dolls to wear. (The illustrations are printed on the book's dust jacket and can be cut out.) Oliver + S is known for including paper dolls images with all of their individual patterns, so including the paper dolls in the book is a natural celebration of their brand and also sets this book apart from all others (see oliverands.com).

This book is beautifully presented with 20 projects that are actually useful. Each project has a difficulty rating, but the intructions and diagrams are so thorough, that even a beginning sewist could tackle some of the more highly rated patterns without too much trouble. I have made several of the items, and each has been well received by the recipient - high praise indeed!show moreby Wendy Anscombe
My copy arrived today while two of my girlfriends were visiting and we all studied it together. There are so many lovely projects that I just can't wait to get started. There is a good mix of clothing, toys and other useful items. I think I will start with the red riding hood, the messenger bag and the cosy winter hood. I have birthdays, Christmas and baby showers covered for at least the next 2 years! I think my sister may also receive a copy of this book for her birthday. It is just so lovely!show moreby Rebecca Fogarty
