Oliver + S Little Things To Sew, By Liesl Gibson

Hello lovelies, have you all had a nice weekend? We went to visit Baby Ama who is the newest addition to the Pope Family this weekend. I am in love and came home with the urge to sew all manner of beautiful things for such a gorgeous little girl!

My hunt for patterns started with Oliver + S who did not disappoint.

If you are into sewing even the tiniest bit I am sure you have come across Oliver + S. In fact even if you don't sew I bet you've admired the sweet Dan Andreasen illustrations. They look as though they've jumped straight off the pages of an old picture book don't they.

What I really wanted to tell you about Oliver + S this morning though was that there is a new book! Liesl Gibson's 'Little Things To Sew' will be available on Amazon tomorrow (1st March) or you can get a signed copy direct from Oliver + S. They have this lovely little promotional video out which I just had to share with you...

I loved the film Thayer Allyson Gowdy did with Meg and Joy for the release of Creative Inc. so I think its really cool that more designers are embracing video, especially when they are this fun.

I am all over the travel quilt, penguin back pack and bear hats. I love that all the projects look really stylish while still being fun for children. Amazon here I come....

See you back here Wednesday friends!
