Encourage their imaginative play with this enchanting, easy-to-sew village of toadstools.

A sweet weekend project for a beginner sewer - these toadstools are a perfect upcyling project or scrap buster and the optional embroidery is a lovely introduction for those wanting to give it a try.

This pattern includes a village of three different sizes of toadstool houses with the following finished heights: Small 6.5" (16.5cm), Medium 8" (20cm) and Large 10" (25.5 cm)

{ U p c y c l e } Make old things new again! Twig + Tale patterns pair wonderfully with recycled fabrics.

  • Cap 12” or 30cm of fabric is enough to make a complete village (this is enough for two villages, but you will need this amount to make one). Red fabric in a similar weight for a classic toadstool. You can add white felt spots to a plain fabric if desired. You could use any colour or patterned fabric for a less traditional option.
