I want to make as many things as possible from the fantastic 'Oliver + S Little Things to Sew' book by Liesl Gibson. I started slowly with two puppet theatres and one backpack, but have upped my game by sharing three more today!
Firstly some bags (not for juggling balls)...
These are considerably smaller because we needed them to hold some card games, like 'Uno'. The fabric is by Riley Blake, 'Pieces of Hope'.
K is great at Uno and we've been having lots of family fun with it recently.
This one is much larger, being only marginally smaller than the pattern and has a future secret purpose in mind! Love the lamb fabric. :-)
Gotz darling. I scanned the pattern pieces and reduced them by 75% (with some fiddling for seam allowances). This is still a bit big so next time I will try about 60%. In order to avoid fiddly hems and seam finishes I fully lined the skirt piece and it becomes reversible!
I had already made K a hooded cape about two years ago, and it is well used for imaginative play. So I needed a new adaption - I made it smaller!
The doll is a fantastic knitted one from a pattern by AK Traditions. She is about 19" tall, with particularly long legs, and is very cuddly. Most of K's dolls have over-large heads so it was a bit tricky finding a doll to fit the cape.
'Bartacks and Singletracks' 'Little Things to Sew - Cover to Cover Challenge'. A lot of thinking and planning was involved!
I also must mention that I have finished another two items (bias trim apron and tutu) but these have been hidden as upcoming birthday presents.
How are you going on your challenges?? Doesn't time fly when you are having fun?
