I have finished the pathfinder vest for my neighbours 4 yr old. Great pattern, so easy to follow. I made a wee outfit for her dolly with the leftover fabric.

What a fun make!

This has been an easy and super fun make for some littles in my life. This is my second Twig and Tale pattern and I’m hooked. The instructions a clear, as are the pattern piece markings. Most importantly, every piece fits together as it should.

So satisfying

I am very happy with the patterns, the proportions look so cute and the sleeveless vest is perfect for playing in southern hemisphere winter. The instructions really help to achieve a perfect finish. I upcycled a felted sweater and blue twill from an old overall.

Easy and gorgeous!

I'm so happy I finally purchased the pathfinder vest pattern. I've made 2, and can't wait to make more. The pattern is easy to understand, great instructions, with tips and ideas. And the size range is amazing. Great customer service, and a Facebook page for help or sharing projects. 😁

Pathfinder and crossroads love

One of my current fav patterns. Owned it for ages before I sewed one up then immediately did a few more. Super simple. Great instructions and not too much time cutting and you get such a cute result.

Wonderful pattern

I love twig and tale patterns! So detailed and so many options in each pattern. I also like how pieces from different patterns can work together. The instructions together with the pictures makes each step easy!

Wonderful Pattetn

I hadn’t sewn any clothing for nearly 40 yrs so was feeling quite anxious about trying the Pathfinder and Pixie Pea Coat patterns! I was thrilled with the detail and photographs and references to videos that made them both perfect patterns for not only a new sewer but also for this nana who hadn’t sewn for so long. O couldn’t recommend them more highly.
