    Twig +Tale Briar Doll + Clothing Collection Views

    Experience required  Briar is suitable for someone who has used a sewing machine before.  Embroidery experience is not required and is fully explained.

    Briar is not a whip-it-up-in-an-evening project, rather there are lots of elements which can be done in a spare fifteen minutes here and there - so she does come together nicely :) 

    Make old things new again! Twig & Tale patterns pair wonderfully with upcycled fabrics. Briar uses very little fabric so look to gorgeous vintage garments and trims and precious fabric scraps for inspiration.

    Supplies
    • 24” of 44” wide fabric (60cm of 115cm wide fabric) for her body. Flesh-coloured broadcloth, calico, linen or other plain cotton material works well.  This will be enough for two dolls, but you will need this amount in order to make one
    • Spool of coordinating thread
    • Upholstery-weight sewing thread in colours similar to her skin and her hair
    • 50-75g ball for her hair.  
    • 4  small buttons - neutral colored for attaching limbs
    • Stuffing - I like to use clean, carded wool

    FAQ

    Q:  What is the difference between Briar and Fleur?
    A:  Briar and Fleur have identical bodies.  Briar was designed with simpler facial features and hair to make her easier for a beginner.  Each come with their own clothing bundles which are also different.

    Q:  Can I purchase the clothing bundles separately so Fleur can wear Briar's outfits and vice versa?  
    A:  The clothing is interchangeable between the dolls, but at this time the clothing bundles are only available to purchase with the dolls.
