Make old things new again! Twig & Tale patterns pair wonderfully with recycled fabrics. Look to woollen blankets, gently used corduroy or wool trousers and leather/suede garments for inspiration.

Wild thing coat and Dragon add on

Great pattern, description very easy to understand. I recycled rest of red cord, rest of bellydance-fabric and a "wrong bought" cleaning Tissue with two sides for mane and ears inside :-) The only bought tissue was cotton linen with many little dragons on it.

Wild Things Coat

Have printed the patterns out. The instructions are easy to understand and have full explanations. I have not had the time to go fabric shopping but looking forward to shopping after Christmas. The only difficulty is choosing which one to make.

Beautiful pattern!

Detailed directions were clear and helpful. I did seem to do a bit of back and forth between the wild things pattern and the base pea coat pattern. I wish all the directions were included in one document. Nevertheless, the coat turned out wonderfully and my daughter loves it. We’ve gotten lots of compliments and her Halloween costume will be used for more than one night! I’m sure more animal coats are in our future.

Intended Fit

This boxy style coat is designed to *hopefully* give you two years of wear.  With its long-line body and turned-back sleeve cuffs, it can often be worn the following year with the sleeves rolled down with a shorter, regular body length. The coat is designed to be roomy enough to be worn over layers.

Check the child’s measurements against the measurements in the size chart to get the best fit.  The sizes are generous and may NOT necessarily be the typical ready-to-wear sizing you might expect.

Suggested Fabrics

Exterior: I like to use wool, in particular wool blankets, but you could also use heavier weight cottons, corduroy, denim, flannel, coating fabrics, wool felt or similar fabrics. Fleece and WindPro are also suitable fabrics. You could also use quilting cottons for a spring weight coat.
Lining: I like to use cotton, linen or other breathable fabric, but you can use regular lining fabric if you wish.

Fabric Requirements

You will need the amounts listed in the chart below for both lining fabric and exterior fabric. You may need more if matching plaids/checks or if you have a directional fabric.  If adding a tail, factor in 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, doggie or giraffe, you may need to factor in a tiny bit more fabric.
