Tilda dolls are my new obsession

Until a few weeks ago I had no idea what Tilda dolls were. I came across them on Pinterest and thought they were the coolest looking dolls ever. They are whimsical yet sophisticated. I love how the options are unlimited and a simple change of fabric you have a totally different looking doll.

I ordered the book Tilda's Studio: Over 50 fresh projects for you, your home and loved ones and just love it. It is a beautiful book. The photography is uplifting and all of the projects are fun and playful. I especially love the wool pixie hat.

But I just had to make a Tilda angel first.

 

It was fairly easy to make but it was time consuming. The arms and legs are skinny at the tips and were fiddly to fill, not impossible, just difficult. I was apprehensive about making the hair and the instructions in the book didn't feel clear enough. But after a little bit of googling and watching a couple of tutorials on youtube I went ahead and did it. At first I was going to make her hair brown, but brown is boring so I went with pink. She is an angel doll after all and the doll hair police don't care.

I definitely plan on making more. And if you like making dolls, give the Tilda dolls a look.
