Wonderful pattern

I love twig and tale patterns! So detailed and so many options in each pattern. I also like how pieces from different patterns can work together. The instructions together with the pictures makes each step easy!

Wonderful Pattetn

I hadn’t sewn any clothing for nearly 40 yrs so was feeling quite anxious about trying the Pathfinder and Pixie Pea Coat patterns! I was thrilled with the detail and photographs and references to videos that made them both perfect patterns for not only a new sewer but also for this nana who hadn’t sewn for so long. O couldn’t recommend them more highly.

Vest review

Just made my first pathfinder vest for my 7 year old granddaughter. The pattern was easy to use and the instructions were easily followed. Looking forward to making more.

Clear instructions

I’d admired this pattern from afar for quite some time and finally had the courage. I shouldn’t have worried! The instructions were so clear and easy to follow! Very impressed.

Super cute and easy

Take it from someone who can only see straight lines. This was deceivingly easy to sew. I was pretty chuffed to have made a vest for my daughter, and will be making lots more!

Little pathfinder

From little and rusty sewing skills I made a simple little vest for my granddaughter. The experience was seamless ( pardon the pun) I am now going to make one for my grandson before venturing up to a coat and shirt. Love it!

Perfect little pattern

I love all the options to customise the most perfect little vest! So many possibilities! I made a little bear vest from a wool blanket and it turned out absolutely perfect. Can’t wait to make more!! Thank you

Easy to sew, adorable!

I made a vest with a pixie hood for my niece’s first birthday. I used corduroy for the outer fabric and quilting cotton for the lining. I really liked the layer feature on the PDF file as well as all the options to customize. I’ll be making more for my own kids!
