 What's Included:

  1. Animal hood pattern pieces (specific to the original garment pattern)

The base Twig + Tale® garment pattern.
You will need to purchase a T+T® vest, coat or cape pattern separately.

Pathfinder Vest - baby, child, adult sizes
Pixie Pea Coat - child sizes
Grove Coat - child + adult sizes

ANIMAL ADD-ON FAQ

Q:   Will this include the pattern for the actual garment?
A:  You must purchase a compatible Twig + Tale® vest, coat or cape/cloak pattern separately, as these animal add-ons do NOT contain all the pattern pieces for the base garment.

Q:   Can I use the same animal add-on for all the kids patterns?
A:   As the necklines are different between the garments, you will need to purchase the add-on specifically for the garment type you are sewing.  (The exception is the Child Pathfinder + Child Pixie Pea Coat (not Grove Coat) add-on pattern pieces which can be used interchangeably.)

Q:   Is there an add-on for the Adults?
A: 
Lucky you, the Adult VEST Animal add-on and the Adult COAT Animal add-on includes both the Men's/Straight Fit AND Women's Curved Fit size ranges in each - bonus!  The Adult Traveller Cape and Overland Cloak are gender expansive patterns.

Supplies

Use the fabric requirement chart from your original garment pattern.

The Animal hood has the same fabric requirements as the Round hood. If adding a tail, allow another 1⁄4 yard or metre.

It is intended that your choice of ears can be cut from the scraps - however, if making a Bunny, Puppy or Giraffe, you may need to allow a tiny bit more fabric.

Add-ons for Pathfinder vest

I am in love with Twig & Tale patterns and this one is no exception! I have only made one Pathfinder with the Bear ears add-on but have more in mind. The tutorials are invaluable, as I am a visual learner, and guide you step by step. I will make many more because of the ease and variations of the pattern. Just found some 'mane' yarn so that will be next :)

Halloween dragon was all she hoped

My daughter wanted to be a dragon for Halloween and she picked out the fabric. She loves the outcome. Even with tips from the FB group the spikes on the head are a little floppy but overall we're both very happy. The sparkly fabric she picked for the wings and spikes worked perfectly otherwise with support from interfacing (on both sides). The green sparkly fabric is quilting cotton. She and I both have Pathfinder vests and I love how the animal add-on contributes to how the pattern can be used.

Cute little dragon

Great pattern, instructions a bit tricky as it is reliant on you purchasing the animal add on pattern. I had to figure out how to adapt it to the vest pattern as I didn't have the animal add-on, but it wasn't super difficult to figure out. Little One is super pleased with her dragon. I added gloves with talons and a fire stick...boom happy little dragon.

Super cute

It was a bit challenging to figure out when/how to manage these as the pattern doesn’t explicitly tell when to add them in.
I didn’t make the fox ears very well and they don’t stand up at all, but I believe that was a maker error.
Happy with the animal add on bit.

Dragons are Animals

Using the adult animal vest add on plus the free child's dragon add on to create 2 adult dragon pathfinders was such fun. The possibilities are huge with the animal options and achieving something amazing is as easy as following step by step

Pixie Pea coat with Bear Ears

So impressed with this pattern and the instructions I am thrilled with the result. I can't wait to sew more of these coats . After sending an email to get advice, the reply was prompt and very helpful.

Thrilled with this pattern

I couldn’t be more pleased with the instructions and clarity for this vest. I’m excited to have a pattern that can grow with my kid and all the exciting animal add-ons and possibilities. the only instruction I wished was clearer was how to best make the ossicones stand up straight.

Sewing for grandbabies

I wish these patterns with their add ons, tips and hacks had been around when my children were little. Instead I get to sew for my grandchildren - probably a more fun option. Patterns are easy to follow. Thanks Twig and Take.
