The animal add on was exactly what I needed. Easy to make up and it looked fabulous in the long black fur that I used to replicate our cat.

Add-ons for Pathfinder vest

I am in love with Twig & Tale patterns and this one is no exception! I have only made one Pathfinder with the Bear ears add-on but have more in mind. The tutorials are invaluable, as I am a visual learner, and guide you step by step. I will make many more because of the ease and variations of the pattern. Just found some 'mane' yarn so that will be next :)

Great pattern and easy to make. So many ideas and great photos

Halloween dragon was all she hoped

My daughter wanted to be a dragon for Halloween and she picked out the fabric. She loves the outcome. Even with tips from the FB group the spikes on the head are a little floppy but overall we're both very happy. The sparkly fabric she picked for the wings and spikes worked perfectly otherwise with support from interfacing (on both sides). The green sparkly fabric is quilting cotton. She and I both have Pathfinder vests and I love how the animal add-on contributes to how the pattern can be used.

Cute little dragon

Great pattern, instructions a bit tricky as it is reliant on you purchasing the animal add on pattern. I had to figure out how to adapt it to the vest pattern as I didn't have the animal add-on, but it wasn't super difficult to figure out. Little One is super pleased with her dragon. I added gloves with talons and a fire stick...boom happy little dragon.

Super cute

It was a bit challenging to figure out when/how to manage these as the pattern doesn’t explicitly tell when to add them in.
I didn’t make the fox ears very well and they don’t stand up at all, but I believe that was a maker error.
Happy with the animal add on bit.

Dragons are Animals

Using the adult animal vest add on plus the free child's dragon add on to create 2 adult dragon pathfinders was such fun. The possibilities are huge with the animal options and achieving something amazing is as easy as following step by step

Super cute Baby Pathfinder

This is a wonderful pattern and the result was a beautiful vest for my 6 month old grandson.
