Lovely hat, makes a great gift

I would say that I am a confident beginner and I found this pattern as well as the instructions very easy to follow. The pictures clearly illustrate what your steps should look like. The instructions and definitions are well written. The hat itself is adorable. It's my new go-to baby gift item and people love them. Bonus is it sews up very fast. I can make one in about an hour now.

Beautiful pattern

So adorable, such a great design.


What an awesome pattern for our babies!

Perfect pattern for Fox and Bear

This bonnet pattern was perfect for making a blue Fig the Fox bonnet and Maple the Polar Bear bonnet for my kids' Halloween costumes. I made out of fleece with thick interfacing for the fox ears. Both littles love the bonnets and are so excited to look like their favorite characters from Tumble Leaf! Everything was easy to understand, follow, cut and sew together. Excellent instructions and I'm glad to have found this pattern. Looking forward to sewing more from Twig and Tale!

Cute bonnet and very easy to sew

Such a great pattern. Easy to sew and instructions super easy to follow. End product is gorgeous!

Suggested fabrics

Due to the four seasons nature of this little bonnet, the fabric options are vast

This pattern is designed for woven fabrics; however, it has also been made from knits during testing with good results using the “Design-Your-Own-Tie” version.  If using thicker fabrics such as fur and the child’s head measurement sits at the upper range of the size you are making, you may need to size up.

Autumn/Winter Exterior: My favourite fabric for these little hats is velvet, followed by light-to-medium weight wool. You can also use medium weight cottons, corduroy, denim, canvas, flannel, suiting fabrics, velour, wool felt, fleece, faux fur or something similar.  Woolen blankets are too thick to make the “Self Tie” version, but they can be used for the other versions if they are not particularly thick blankets.  Felted woolen sweaters can also be used with the same consideration as for woolen blankets.

Spring/Summer Exterior: Quilting cottons, linen, lightweight denim or chambray are perfect for a spring weight bonnet.

Lining: I like to use cotton, linen, flannel or other breathable fabrics next to their skin.  Sherpa, faux fur, fleece and other soft fuzzy fabrics can also be used.
