Those “in the sew” love to dress the children in their lives in garments they have hand-crafted. No one understands this better than Liesl Gibson, who is both a mom and the founder of Oliver + S, a sewing pattern company known for its contemporary yet classically sensible kids’ designs, its precise, easy-to-follow instructions, and its charming paper doll–inspired packaging. In Oliver + S Little Things to Sew, you’ll find 20 accessories for children, such as a hat with bear ears, scarf, vest, tutu, art smock, backpack, and quilt – all beautifully photographed by Laurie Frankel. The book includes two full-size pattern sheets and, as an added bonus, two cardstock paper dolls that can be dressed with “clothing” cut from the book’s jacket – a little something extra to keep young ones occupied while grownups stitch new items for their wardrobes!

Therawise Natural Baby Diaper Ointment
Most diaper rash ointments are still petroleum-based. Petro-chemical ingredients do not allow your baby’s skin to breath, one of the most important processes required for healthy skin. Petro-chemical ingredients harm natural oils and leave baby’s skin vulnerable.
Natural Baby Diaper Ointment’s plant-based ingredients allows the skin to breathe properly, while providing soothing and regenerative properties to reduce skin irritation in the diaper area. Additional highlights include a quick-drying, non-greasy, plant-based and alcohol-free formulation. It is ideal for both disposable and cloth diapers.
All Théra Wise packaging is BPA- and phthalate-free.
