Tilda Angel with Bird

I finally got round to making my first rag doll from Tone Finnanger's Tilda range and have to say am just a little bit chuffed with how it turned out.  She comes in a kit form like the one above, the packaging as always is just as gorgeous as what is inside.
 Taking in the evening air out in the garden.  Oh dear poor birdie looks like he is hanging on for dear life!

Her hair isn't quite how it should be and one of her legs is a teeny bit shorter but I still love her!  The nice thing about these kits are the pattern pieces are full size, none of this englarging lark.  Even in her books the patterns are full size.
This is her full stretch and she as amazing 64cms tall, but she can't stand up though bless her.  I think I will be adding a loop to the back of her so I can hang her on my craft room wall.
That's better we can see little birdie now and he looks much better the right way up.  In her instructions the birdcage is sewn onto her hand but I have just tied the ribbon round her wrist so it can be removed easily.

Overall she was very easy to make and took only 3 hours to do.  This has now spurred me on and am now itching to make other things from her books which before now I have just flicked through and then put back on the shelf.  I am imagining a whole line of tilda dolls hanging from my walls.  Better get cracking then!

Thanks for popping by.

  1. She is lovely!! I love the little bird!!

  2. I have SO many of these Tilda books, and have never actually dared to attempt anything as yet! Everything in them is just so beautiful that I can sit for hours just flicking through the pages dreaming and planning without actually achieving much else! I didn't know that they came in kits? This could be a far better option than staring at a pattern - Did you get yours on-line?
    Delighted to have found you - you have a very beautiful blog.
    best wishes,
