Very happy

I haven’t made the new ones yet but my other hottie covers are selling well

Fun to Make

Patterns are easy to print out and the clear directions include lots of ideas for varying the project.

Wildly good hottie covers

Absolutely love all of these hottie covers even though I’m not sure some of my UK friends would even know what a manatee was. Made the penguin to start with. They are very easy to make, I didn’t even need to refer to the instructions during construction and they look great when made.

Fabulously fun pattern

Very easy to follow and enjoyed by all as Christmas presents. Be careful to read pattern first before cutting out re binding of edges, as i missed that bit. Otherwise loads of fun and a great way to use up scraps and be creative.

I’m unable to use

It looks like a darling pattern but I’m unable to use it as it is digital and I have no printer. I am homebound and can’t get anywhere to get a copy. 😢

Awesome designs. I made 17 for Christmas gifts and embroidered their names onto the backs.

Another great pattern that combines creativity and scraps

Loved making this!! Such great instructions and inspiration as always!! My cat is always happy to supervise when Twig and Tale is involved too! Yes the eyes are trimmed with selvage and I think it makes it a hoot

Hotties for the grandkids recycles sweaters and wool garments

I made 9 of these, one for each grandchild. I used wool sweaters and clothing repurposed for this project. Each got their own unique animal. The kids take them to bed on chilly nights.

Amazing upcycling project

I made the otter from an old woolen skirt of my Mum and it turned out even greater than expected. The whole project took longer than I had anticipated, but that's only because it encouraged me to go all in with the details. This will not be my last hot water bottle cover!

I was also happy to find out that standard bottle size in Germany seems to be the same as in New Zealand 😉

Easy to sew, but looks labor intensive!

I love Twig and Tale patterns. They offer unique things, their directions make stitching them straightforward, and the results look so professional. I made the Owl and Fox hot water bottle covers for my granddaughters birthdays. I’ll be making more, as I have sweet littles (and not so littles) that I know would enjoy curling up with a warm walrus, or penguin, or raccoon….
