Sewing through Little Things to Sew

I’m in trouble now! Bartacks and Singletack is hosting a sew-along of the Oliver + S book Little Things to Sew! Cover to cover by August 31, 2014. With all the birthdays and baby showers between now and then, I think I can do it 🙂

Because this book is a goldmine.

If you haven’t stumbled across this eye candy yet, Little Things to Sew is from the talented Liesl Gibson of Oliver + S pattern fame. Each project features their clean, classic style and fantastic directions. They walk you step by step. I’ve never done a project and gotten stuck with a “Now what?” Best of all, these are cute and quick projects perfect for gifting.

I’m going to use this post as a “table of contents” if you want to keep tabs on what I’ve done and where I’ve yet to go. If you want to join in, be sure to check out the introduction post and the Flickr group. There’s a couple give aways already planned for participants, including a copy of the book. Below, click on the photo to go to the blog post with more details and lots of photos.

  1. It looks kind of daunting when it’s all in one list like that! I love your tutus. I can’t decide on colours. I know what I’d like and I don’t think it’s what my daughter would like…
    Thanks for the shout-out and so happy to have you sewing along with me!

    • It does look kind of daunting! I’m planning a bunch of sets to get it done – like, hand puppets and the theater together; the hood, scarf, and mittens together, etc.
      I can’t wait to see the Flickr group fill up! These are great starting points for some really cool projects. I think my favorite will be the quilt.
