Tilda Love


The new Tilda book is out.  

I popped into the Fat Quarters shop at lunchtime today (which was a little treasure trove!) for a couple of fat quarters and came away with this too.

I'm having a bit of a Tilda thing at the minute, I keep pouring over her books and as I am yet to make a Tilda angel, that is on my 'things to do in the near future' list.

Gorgeous modern girlies in their trouser suits and denim jackets.

How sweet would she look in my little sewing hobbit hole?

Cute or what, little Tilda Bugs!

I know some folk find them spooky as they have no face to speak of.  Hubbie has warned me that I am not to put one in our bedroom as they creep him out... he mostly has his eyes closed in the bedroom anyway so he'll never notice ;0)

I bought a few pretty little bits of Tilda and I'm planning to make a start soon on my own little angel.  I like this girl, from the Sew Sunny Homestyle book, she is a short angel and she is more my shape!

Who knows though I will be sure to show what transpires in all it's cute/spooky glory!  

What do you think, cute or spooky?

Back Soon x

I had a bit of a Tilda thing a couple of years ago and made lots of angels and some other bits. I've gone off it a bit now but I love the sewing angel. She's gorgeous! Can't wait to see what you make. Xx

I love the Tilda books, but am far better at leafing through the books than I am at actually ,aking anything from them ! XX

Wendy said...

I've got my eye on that book. I haven't let myself buy it yet as I have loads of Tilda books but I'm too scared to attempt any of the patterns!

wow I love the bugs but the .real life. figure is my fave!

Louise said...

I love the Tilda figures, especially the red spotty dress one. I like that they have no facial features ... more room for imagination. So I think they are cute (and classy) : )

I've never seen them before and I love them (even though they kind of remind me of that scary no-eyed man in Pan's Labrynth!) x

Tea at Weasel's said...
