We have something really exciting to share with you all, which is brand new to the Tilda collection this autumn. It is the incredibly sweet Tilda Friends, the fox and the rabbit.
We are introducing Tilda Friends, pre-sewn dolls that you can make clothes for. There is a fox and a rabbit and they are just so so cute. Created in the much-loved Tilda style, they are quite tall, so great for children as they look quite oversized.
It is terrific that Tilda has created these pre-sewn dolls as. Speaking from experience, unless you are a confident sewer, the dolls you can sew yourself can be quite tricky. So now you can have one of these dolls without having to make it yourself.
What you can do for these dolls if make their clothes and accessories. We have three patterns available this season, a dress with wings, a stylish top and trousers set and a raincoat. Tone will be releasing some pattern ideas and inspiration on her blog in the coming weeks and months. So keep your eyes peeled!
I love love love these guys and think they would make an excellent gift for a young girl who has just taken up sewing, so she can create small scale clothes for the doll as a starter project.
Of course, all the clothes can be made in the Cabbage Rose and Memory Lane fabric or those extra bits of fabric you may have left over from craft projects. While you make an outfit for your little one, they can make a matching outfit for their doll! I think that is a really sweet idea. Not only will the characters be Tilda Friends, they will become their friends too.
Tilda started out as a children’s brand many years ago and they have said that “It’s a dream come true for us to be able to provide pre-sewn Tilda dolls approved for children of all ages worldwide. ?Crafty friends that can inspire creativity.” I think they are right, these are just adorable and think they will be so so popular.
