Beautiful dragon pattern

I used the combination of the pathfinder vest + animal add-on + free dragon add-on. It took a bit of work switching back and forth between the three patterns, especially figuring out exactly which pieces I needed to use for the hood, but I love the end result. What a great option for a Halloween costume that's sturdy and wearable enough to get all-year use.

Love all Twig+tale patterns

I have a few Twig+Tale patterns and love them all! I just got the animal vest pattern and have already sewn up 4! They came together very quickly and they are so fun! I am making one for all my neices for Christmas!

Fabulous pattern

My grandsons love their vests! I’m a new sewist, so if I can do this, anyone can!

great patterns

Love the simple directions for the pathfinder vests. You can sew one up in a few hours.

So easy and so fun

I have almost zero sewing experience. I'm in my mid 30s and last time I sewed something was as a teenager. I remembered how to use my sewing machine, but other than that I'm a complete novice. It took me a while to read through all the instructions, had to look up a few terms online, but overall I was able to complete this without any real trouble at all! I bought some women's jackets from a thrift store, cut them up and used them to make a cute hooded dragon vest for my 1 year old boy. Overall it took me maybe 3-4 hours from printing, taping the pattern, cutting it up, cutting the fabric and sewing the whole thing together. I can't believe how easy this project was for a beginner like me! It's giving me the confidence to try out some additional sewing projects. I am hooked on Twig and Tale!

I made the dinosaur pathfinder last week and I love it! Easy to make because of the clear instructions and so much fun to make and wear!

Thank you Twig and Take.

Baby pathfinder

I’m only a beginner but I’ve made two vests for my 4 month old now. They’re such an easy and rewarding sew.

The instructions are clear and simple, with great results.

Now I need to try the dragon add on!
