May Monthly Make

I did it, finally after a couple of years wanting I made myself a Tilda angel.

When I saw the little fat angel I fell in love with it, I think I saw myself in there ;0)

Anyhoo, here she is, a little less scary now she has hair and a bit of a face.  The kids are still terrified of her and named her Scary Mary, bless her.






Before:




and after:



An under the dress shot, I made her a navel...


 and I tattooed her bum...


she proudly watches over my crafty bits in my cupboard.


Scary Mary will be my Monthly Make for May.























Back Soon x

I guess the fact she is kind of faceless makes her a little scary, but I like her! :)

She's beautiful! Scary Mary indeed, the cheeky whatsits! I love her. I don't remember that one. Is she from the new book? Xx

I have always loved Tilda and have all the Tone Finnanger books and I love everything she does. I did find a blog dedicated to (mostly) all things Tilda, this is the link address if you want to have a peep tygodamm.blogspot.co.uk

Love your chubby angel, I don't think her face is scary, just different :)

She's cute!! If she had no face at all it might be creepy but I think the eyes make it ok :)

Crikey, I think a stick up the bum is liable to make anyone say ouch lol!!! Looks lovely (the doll not the stick up the bum I hasten to add)!! :)

Great make, funny that the kids find her scary too. Maybe she can 'guard' all your stuff in your crafty cupboard? lol. xx

I love her... she definitely has my figure! And a much classier bum tattoo than mine!
