Oliver +S Little Things to Sew is ready to ship! You can now order an autographed copy for yourself on the book page of our website.
I thought it would be fun to leave you with a few favorite behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot. This is the juggling balls and drawstring bag, shot from above using moss instead of grass:
S “helped” with this shot and was pleased to tell us that she is just outside the frame of the photo that is in the book. I can just imagine her off to the left when I look at that page in the book. Here she is helping to set up the shot.
Our model for this project is a friend and former classmate of S who signed with a major modeling agency just days after these photos were taken. He and his sister (who also makes a couple appearances in the book) can now be seen in nationwide advertisements and in-store display photographs. We feel really lucky that we got to work with them, especially now that they’re stars. And about the nicest kids you can meet, to boot.
By the way, I’ve made many of these drawstring bags. I use them for my camera, my drawing tablet, toys, gifts, and other things. Everyone loves them, so don’t limit their use to the juggling balls.
OK, now go get your copy of the book and start sewing! Have fun with the book. I can’t wait to see what you make with it.
