Made adorable doll bassinet

Turned out to be an adorable doll bassinet for my great niece! Video tutorials and PDF instructions were excellent!

So cute

I absolutely love this cute and lovely pattern coming along with very detailed and clear instructions how to sew it.

Truly whimsical

What a wonderful and truly whimsical pattern that will not only delight the lucky one who receives it but also the one who creates it. I loved making this Forest Basket. The instructions are very clear and the videos are excellent. There are a couple of tricky things to do but the results are magical. The addition of the hood which can also be used as a play house allows you to be creative by adding your own designs to make the complete set you own.

A beautiful project

As always, a beautifully detailed set of instructions, resulting in a lovely finished product. This will be a gift for my almost 3 year old next week. On and off, it took me a long time to complete, only because I'm a slow worker!
One extra step I did -I turned the hood inside out and sewed along the two seam lines either side of the rectangular panel. This held my hood lining (which was too big - I'm not good at judging seam size!) to the outer skin.

So beautifull

I absolutely love this pateen. I’ve already Made it 3 times as à gift to my family. The only Thing i steuggled whit was finding the right interfacing because the examples in the description aren’t available in the EU

Excellent pattern

This was the best digital pattern I have used to date. Very clear and specific instructions.

I didn’t have iron on interfacing so used two layers of sew in which caused problems with the outside fabric stretching when being quilted and I won’t make that mistake again. It was probably the most fiddly thing I have ever made too because of all the layers but I’m pleased I persisted as my granddaughter loves it. I made the medium size.

Forest Nature Basket

I found this pattern to be easy to understand with each step clearly laid out - it was a daunting project for me. I never got confused or wondered what to do in any step while making it. I like the tips, videos, material suggestions and the inspirations that are a part of Twig and Tale patterns. I'm not sure I would have tried such a project if I hadn't previously used Twig and Tale patterns and knew them to be so user-friendly. Another Twig and Tale pattern-user success!

Overall liked

Over all I enjoyed sewing up and making the ocean basket. There are some challenges as a US user in that the fabric here is often different sizes then written in the directions. Which means lots of figuring out what you need. That coupled with the interfacing being hard to find ( even the us alternative one suggested) and having no real frame of reference for how thick it needed to be ( other than firm) I think I went too thick. Overall I think the basket turned out well and my daughter liked it so that’s what is important. Looking for help/ support in The online Facebook group didn’t really offer replies which means it probably has gotten too big or people just didn’t know the answer. I will defiantly still make stuff from this company but do more research on what I need before I start and reach out directly to the author of need be. I was in a time crunch.

Cloud Basket

I recently made the Cloud Basket for 2 year old grandchild who loved it right from the start! I used Op Shop (Charity Shop) fabric and a recycled sheet for the lining. The baby doll this was made for is small so used the 9 inch sized pattern. Second grandchild has already asked for one, and parents who have seen the first one I made wanted to know if I sewed them to order. Thanks T&T for a lovely pattern.

Fun and detailed pattern

I had a lot of fun with this pattern. I have never used quilting techniques or used batting before so this was new territory. The instructions were detailed and clear so I was able to make this up pretty quickly for my daughter’s Ostara gift 🖤
