    Materials you need at home:

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Spool of coordinating thread
    • Materials for making ties (braided yarn, bias tape, etc.) if making the ““Design-Your-Own-Tie”” version
    • Snap, button, velcro or dome if making the chin strap version
    • Small piece of 1/4” (6mm) wide elastic - approx 2.5” (6-5cm) long - optional
    • Scraps of iron-on interfacing for the peak and/or ears if making animal versions
    • Scraps of coordinating fabrics for ears
    • Yarn or embroidery floss if making an embroidered version
