Materials you need at home:

  • {Upcycle} , Make old things new again! Twig & Tale patterns pair wonderfully with upcycled fabrics. Look to gently-used soft wool or cashmere sweaters, and precious fabric scraps or vintage sheets for lining. , , {Suggested fabrics} , Exterior fabric One old sweater! I love to use recycled woolen sweaters which have been felted (slightly shrunk and the fibres have bonded together). Otherwise use any soft warm fabric for the exterior. , Lining Cotton, soft linen, flannelette or other soft breathable fabric. , , {Fabric requirements} , I use recycled wool sweaters to make these hats, but if you are purchasing fabric you will need 3/4 yard (70 cm) of 44” (115 cm) wide fabric of both lining and exterior fabric. This will probably be enough to make more than one hat, depending on the size you are making. , , {Other supplies & notions}
  • Yarn for ties.
  • Small amounts of felt, yarn and embroidery thread for your chosen applique or embroidery.
  • Spool of coordinating thread for sewing the hat.

Twig + Tale

From my treehouse studio hidden within the New Zealand forest, I draft clothing and toy patterns that capture the essence of childhood storybooks. To me, sewing is a magical journey, full of adventure and the wonderful tales that each material holds. I believe in reusing fabrics when possible and bringing new life to old things, in spending time (sometimes together, sometimes alone) to let the spirit run free.

Twig & Tale is for everyone who shares a love of creativity and an adventurous spirit—beginner sewers especially! It's a celebration of the innocence of childhood and the wonder of nature. It's about comfy clothes and warm things like hugs and capes and coats. It's about handmade, love, and imaginary play—featuring classic, simple patterns that inspire us all to tell a story.
