Take our ever-popular Pathfinder Vest and pair it with this Animal Add-on for a fun, yet practical vest that keeps you warm as you run wild!

Skill level:  Beginner - Adventurous beginner (animals with manes are a little more work)

14 Animal Options:  Fox, Unicorn, Lion, Bear, Bunny, Dino, Cat, Mouse, Giraffe,Zebra, Horse, Donkey, Ladybird and Puppy


By modifying the pattern pieces you can make almost any animal you can think of!   

 What's Included:

  1. Animal hood pattern pieces (specific to the Pathfinder Vest patterns)
  2. Animal elements such as ears, horns + antlers
  3. Animal tails 
  4. Animal pocket piece with options for claws + paw prints
  5. Full sewing instructions

 What's NOT Included:

  1. The base pattern for the Pathfinder Vest. 
    You will need to purchase the vest pattern separately. 

    There are Baby, Child, Women's/Curved Fit and Men's/Straight Fit size Pathfinder Vests are available here
COMPATIBILITY

These Add-ons are compatible with all of the Twig + Tale Pathfinder Vest patterns. The Baby + Child add-on is also compatible with the Petal Wrap Dress (animal dress anyone?!)

The Adult Add-on includes all the size ranges for both the Women's/Curved Fit AND Men's Straight Fit.


    Animal Add-ons also available for COATS here and CAPES here

    Q:   Will this include the pattern for the actual vest?
    A:  You must purchase the Pathfinder Vest pattern separately, as these animal add-ons do NOT contain all the pattern pieces for the vest.

    Q:   Can I use the same animal add-on for all the kids patterns?
    A:   As the necklines are different between the garments, you will need to purchase the add-on specifically for the garment type you are sewing.  (The exception is the Child Pathfinder + Child Pixie Pea Coat (not Grove Coat) add-on pattern pieces which can be used interchangeably.)

    Q:   Is there an add-on for the Adult Pathfinder Vests?
    A: Lucky you, the Adult Animal add-on includes both the Men's/Straight Fit AND Women's Curved Fit size ranges in the one add-on - bonus!

    SUPPLIES

    Use the fabric requirement chart from your original garment pattern.

    The Animal hood has the same fabric requirements as the Round hood. If adding a tail, allow another 14 yard or metre.

    It is intended that your choice of ears can be cut from the scraps - however, if making a Bunny, Puppy or Giraffe, you may need to allow a tiny bit more fabric.

    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 :)

    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

    Pixie Pea coat with Bear Ears

    So impressed with this pattern and the instructions I am thrilled with the result. I can't wait to sew more of these coats . After sending an email to get advice, the reply was prompt and very helpful.

    Thrilled with this pattern

    I couldn’t be more pleased with the instructions and clarity for this vest. I’m excited to have a pattern that can grow with my kid and all the exciting animal add-ons and possibilities. the only instruction I wished was clearer was how to best make the ossicones stand up straight.

    I wish these patterns with their add ons, tips and hacks had been around when my children were little. Instead I get to sew for my grandchildren - probably a more fun option. Patterns are easy to follow. Thanks Twig and Take.
