Experience required

Suitable for someone who has used a sewing machine before.  
Embroidery experience is not required and is fully explained.
She 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.
