I made the unicorn add on. I found it easy to follow for a beginner. It was tricky at times getting everything to line up. Especially as I used a vintage blanket. The bulk of all the fabric together. But overall the pattern is very satisfying and it came out awesome. Will be making a dinosaur next.
Absolutely beautiful patterns! So easy to follow and put together.
As a beginner sewer this pattern has boosted my confidence immensely! I was able to complete the dinosaur vest completely on my own! Twig & Tale patterns are my all time favourite for their ease of use. I cannot wait to try them all!
