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

Easy and fun

So easy to make and create a one of a kind bonnet. I can’t wait to make more!

So sweet!

Sweet and simple little see with a gajillion options for making it your own/for every season. These patterns are the most thorough I’ve encountered. Love.

Easter perfection

My daughters and I whipped up a pair of these for their Easter hat parade this year, bunny ears of course. They were so cute and relatively simple, my 6 and 9 year olds were able to do enough that they felt they had made them themselves - just needing help with some of the curves. We enjoyed it enormously and they look fantastic, I can’t wait to make more.

Great pattern

I really enjoy how professionally it is prepared. The layers make it so easy to print the right size and the instructions are clear and easy to follow even for a beginner. I've already made 8 different bonnets and each of them is beautiful.

Great Pattern!

Love this pattern and all the options that are available. I just wish there was guidance about what sizes fit what approximate ages - makes it hard to make a surprise gift when you have to ask for a child's head measurement first!

Suggested fabrics

Due to the four seasons nature of this little bonnet, the fabric options are vast

This pattern is designed for woven fabrics; however, it has also been made from knits during testing with good results using the “Design-Your-Own-Tie” version.  If using thicker fabrics such as fur and the child’s head measurement sits at the upper range of the size you are making, you may need to size up.

Autumn/Winter Exterior: My favourite fabric for these little hats is velvet, followed by light-to-medium weight wool. You can also use medium weight cottons, corduroy, denim, canvas, flannel, suiting fabrics, velour, wool felt, fleece, faux fur or something similar.  Woolen blankets are too thick to make the “Self Tie” version, but they can be used for the other versions if they are not particularly thick blankets.  Felted woolen sweaters can also be used with the same consideration as for woolen blankets.

Spring/Summer Exterior: Quilting cottons, linen, lightweight denim or chambray are perfect for a spring weight bonnet.

Lining: I like to use cotton, linen, flannel or other breathable fabrics next to their skin.  Sherpa, faux fur, fleece and other soft fuzzy fabrics can also be used.
