Praise for Oliver + S Little Thigns to Sew:
and#8220;Making a bucket hat probably isnand#8217;t on anyoneand#8217;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.and#8221;
