crafternoon at the new york public library, april 2

If you’re in the New York City area (or if you want an excuse to come visit…), please join us at the New York Public Library on April 2 from 2:00 -4:00 for an Oliver + S Little Things to Sew Crafternoon event.

Bring the family. I’ll talk just a tiny bit about the book, show you some library-related inspiration, and then we’re going to make magnetic paper dolls and clothing, much like this magnetic paper doll I made for S a few years ago.

We’ll provide Oliver + S dolls, fabric scraps and trims, and all the supplies you’ll need to make your own paper doll.

You’re also more than welcome to bring a full-length 4″ x 6″ photo or drawing of someone you want to turn into a paper doll, if you’d like to personalize the project for someone you love, or for yourself. And there’s no sewing required for these dolls. We’ll stick with scissors and glue so everyone can participate. See all the details about the afternoon here.




  1. And then you’ll pop on over to Queen Creek, AZ, right? 😉

    Can’t wait! Chloe and I will be there, clad in her liberty print Bubble Dress, courtesy of your advice.

  3. Nicole

    Oh,that would be so much fun!

  4. Sarah

    We have 4 hours to kill in NYC that day. Unfortunately it is for a layover at JFK and we don’t land until 4pm. If the flight was earlier, I so would have stopped by!

  5. Amy

    Oh, boo hoo, Liesl — now I miss living in New York even more….. Don’t suppose you’re just dying to visit north Texas, are you?

  6. This sounds like a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Wish I could be there!

    I would love the set of clothes to download for my grandchildren to use just as I dressed paper dolls as a child.
