Little dragon

I loved making the dragon coat. I made it in fleece with a cotton.lining. I cut the tail as one with the back to make it easier. The one thing I found difficult was the name. I made it in fleece, but it was so thick that I struggled getting it through the machine, so it did not look that full. I would use wool next time.

Easy and beautiful sew!!

I absolutely adore this pattern, I am only a beginner sewer and I found this pattern super easy to follow and sew. I love having so many options to make each vest it’s own individual item 😀

Loved sewing this little vest with the bunny add on for my Granddaughter. The size 6-9 month. Made with wool outer and cotton lining. Pictured with a driftwood blouse.
The instructions were easy to follow and I 100% recommend it.

Brilliant!

The pattern has so many options and it's easy to mix and match to make you own unique finished Pathfinder. Instructions are easy to follow and help you make something to be proud of.

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!
