Materials you need at home:

  • View size chart + materials list , https//
  • Exterior I like to use vintage woolen blankets, but you can use any warm fabric such as wool, wool blends, corduroy or velvet. Fleece and WindPro are also suitable fabrics. You could also use quilting cottons for a spring weight vest.
  • Lining Cotton, linen, flannel or other soft breathable fabric.
  • Spool of coordinating thread
  • Button(s) or toggle(s)
  • Cord elastic for fastening loops (optional - enough to make a loop to go over each button). Allow approximately 7” (18cm) per loop, as you need some length in order to tie the knot.

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.
