Beautiful pattern and nice simple instructions!

I absolutely adore these!

After mastering the dragon wings, I thought I'd spread MY wings and go forth with Woodland Sprite......so gorgeous. I'm hooked, a new string in my kids wear range.

(BTW it says I'm in Townsville, but I'm actually in Midge Point in the Whitsundays, Australia)

Delightful, I love to keep imaginations growing

I was a bit hesitant in taking this pattern on. I made a few changes in materials to suit what I had in my stash, I must say I’m pretty pleased with the results. I wish I had a grandchild/niece/nephew etc. to model them though........I have another cut out to go 😏🤞🏽

A little bit of magic ✨

Oh my - an absolute joy to make and I made them for myself. Never too old for fairy wings.

Thank you T&T xxx

So Cute!!

This pattern is wonderful! I found I really had to follow the instructions really carefully but sooo worth it. My DIL had given me a bridesmaid dress to make something with so I did. The fabric was a bit slippery but came out OK I think :-)

Awesome pattern and instructions

This was my first Twig and Tale pattern and it was very complete and easy to follow. I was very proud to give this as a gift!

Beautifully written pattern, very methodical

A really super pattern. I haven't followed many patterns, just the odd clothing one, and this one was written so personably and the process of making so precisely documented. I particularly liked the parts advising to step back and admire the progress! I could have used one of two extra photos of the process as I got a little confused once or twice, but this is likely my error!
I chose a really daft fabric - couldn't pin it as it showed every single hole. And a metallic thread which frayed and jammed my machine if I pressed the machine foot fractionally too far to make the needle go more than about 2 stitches per second! My advice is stick to lovely cotton fabric and thread!
Even if you are quite a novice sewer, it's possible to make these wings if you take it slow!
