Pixie Essentials

Make old things new again! Twig & Tale patterns pair wonderfully with recycled fabrics. Look to gently used corduroy or light weight wool garments and pretty printed cotton dresses or shirts for inspiration.

Like all Twig & Tale patterns, these are an absolute joy to follow and make. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, resulting in some beautiful, well made, classic shorts for your little ones!

I had fun making this!

This looks more complicated than it actually was to make. It was simple and straightforward, with excellent instructions and videos along the way. I used fabric from a failed pair of pants I tried to make for myself years ago and it turned out wonderful! I can’t wait to make these again!

Finally something interesting for boys!!

I love this pattern and have made many versions of it for my home-based business. I had found it difficult to find interesting options for boys - these fit the bill.

on of my favourite

This pattern is brilliant, the pants are fitting very well.
The support videos are excellent, very well explained and easy to follow.
All the pattern pieces line up and it’s a good pattern for advanced beginners.
I very much love the idea of Twig+Tale patterns,
which are designed to be made from upcycled materials!
I am looking forward to work more with these
unique patterns in the future. Thank you!
