Oliver + S sent me this new sewing book to check out called Little Things to Sew: 20 Classic Accessories and Toys for Kids and I can’t get over how beautiful each project is. It might have something to do with the author, Liesl Gibson, being an actual designer, having previously worked for Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger (fancy!)
One thing that bugs me about sewing books in general is that out of the whole book there are usually only a small handful of projects I’d like to make; most of the projects don’t quite fit my taste. This is the first book I’ve seen where every single project is something I’d really like to try.
Like these amazing little bunny caps or this to do for blanket below? The instructions look super easy to follow as well and separate pattern sheets come with the book.
If you love sewing kids clothes and toys like me, or know someone that does. I’d highly recommend picking up a copy of Oliver + S Little Things to Sew right here.
I can’t wait to try some of these projects myself. Would be a great gift for Mother’s Day!
Curious: Have you had much success with sewing or other types of how-to books? Or do you prefer to be taught by someone firsthand?
