Makes a wonderful gift

This was a lovely pattern to sew and the hats make fantastic gifts for all ages. The instructions are so clear with easy to follow pictures - so would not be too much of a challenge for a beginner. Great for using up fabric scraps and recycled fabrics.

Fancy Little Hats

I love the Sunny hat and the Petal Add on just makes it even cuter! This pattern goes together quickly and the directions are clear and
Easy to understand!
I make a lot for a dog/cat rescue, and add cute bottoms on top! Always a big hit!!

Lovely Design

I just love this, i’m getting to use a bunch of the scrap fabric i had kicking around for years, and it looks like a little flower fairy hat!

i don’t know why i didn’t think i could make my own hats- my head is small, so it’s hard for me to find one that fits. the instructions are clear and easy to follow, as i’ve found with all T&T patterns i’ve tried. they have helped me hone my technique and have given me skills that i now use with other projects. i think i’ve passed “adventurous beginner”. THANKS!
*my hat is currently in progress 🙂

Love the Sunny Hat and Flower Add-on!

My little 3 1/2 yr old great-granddaughter is in love with her Sunny hat. We call it her 'magic' hat as I made it reversible. I've also just finished sewing another with the Flower Add-on. For this one, I used scraps left over from a cute little top and shorts I made for her, so now she has a complete outfit. TwigandTale has very good clear instructions and the videos are helpful. I've already purchased more of their patterns and will be sewing for our greats and grands.

I can't download this pattern - disappointed.
Any way to fix this ?
Clearly it's a general problem that hopefully those in charge should want to remedy in order for any orders to take place.

Easy versatile pattern

I made the hat with the flower add-on for my daughter. She loves it. Great instructions and easy to get a good fit. My husband has also made one for me - his first time sewing anything and it turned out great. :-)

Amazing pattern

This pattern is amazing such a quick sew, easy to follow and the instructions are amazing as always. Great for using up scraps as well. I’ve made a few now! Love our softshell one for being shower proof. Such a versatile pattern and defo worth buying this add on.

“Practice” Sunny Hat

I made my Granddaughter a Sunny Hat out of some fabric that was hanging around just to test the size. I cut them from the same place in the stripes (because I am a bit OCD). So excited about how it turned out. Will definitely make a few more!
