The Absolute Best Pattern!

I have purchased many patterns for bags, wallets, and clothing. This pattern is the absolute best I have ever worked with! So much detail, great explanations and photos, plus tutorial links right in the patterns. And the clever creative designs, based in Nature!

Much thought has gone into it, and I am so happy to have found you!

I made the Animal Vest for my almost 4 yr old granddaughter, who wanted to be a Dalmation.

I was searching a pattern for carnival for my godson... and I found it on Pinterest. It's at this moment that I discovered Twig and Tale. Pattern are easy to follow and the result is really nice !

Twig and Tale are easily one of my favourite pattern designers! The instructions are superb and really help you each step of the way to reach a satisfying result! This is my second animal vest and surely not the last. The mane I had to do twice , and actually came up with my own twist on how to make it work. The tail I also did differently than in the instruction, because all shop were closed and I couldn't get any fur, which I really wanted to use. So I crochets a net, so I could knot on the wool . Later I combed it carefully with a flick carder.

Really fun sew

I have had so much fun sewing these animal add-ons mainly to the pathfinder vest because I find them so versatile. It’s so nice to see the delight on the kid’s faces when they see what I’ve created.

So fun!

I love to sew heirloom dresses for my granddaughters, but I've been told "no smocking" for my grandsons. The animal add-on for the Pathfinder vest is the perfect solution to be able to sew for them too. I can't wait to sew an entire zoo.
