Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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, youll 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 books 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 isnt on anyones 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  

Synopsis:

More than just a pair of days, a weekend is also a state of mindand#151;a feeling of relaxation and freedom to immerse ourselves fully in a favorite activity. In Weekend Sewing, designer Heather Ross presents creative projects for clothing, accessories, and home items that can be made in a weekend or less. Some, like the Quick Garden Gloves and Rubyand#8217;s Bloomers, take a few hours; others, like the Weekend-Away Travel Bag and Trapeze Sundress, require a day or twoand#151;but all of them capture that weekend feeling.
and#160;

And because weekends are often the most fun when theyand#8217;re social, Ross features ideas that encourage us to share our stitching and our time, such as a recipe for soup to simmer while sewing, then serve to guests later in the day, and tips for transporting a sewing machine to a friendand#8217;s house for an afternoon of social stitching.

The sewing instructions are beautifully illustrated, and patterns for the projects are included on pullout sheets.
