Seaside Craft Ideas | Tilda’s Seaside Life

Summer is finally here and there’s nothing better than a day at the seaside. The latest range of Tilda fabrics has a classic seaside theme, and there’s a great selection of projects in Tone Finnanger’s new book, Tilda’s Seaside Ideas.

Tilda's Seaside IdeasIf you’re a fan of the adorable Tilda dolls, you’ll love the latest offering from designer Tone Finnanger. The inspiration for her latest range of products has been holiday memories of the seaside and life in the country. The Tilda Seaside Life collection includes beautiful fabrics, papers and ribbons, and there’s even a cute 100-piece Tilda decor set for card-makers and scrapbookers too.

The colour palette for the Tilda Seaside Life fabrics includes elegant shades of navy blue, cream and sea green, with subtle touches of pink and red added in some designs. My favourites from the collection are the White Flower Grey-Green fabric and the China Blue fabric, as they’re both so timeless and would suit a wide range of different projects!

Tilda's Seaside IdeasTone’s latest book, Tilda’s Seaside Ideas, features simple sewing and papercraft projects using fabrics and embellishments from the Seaside Life and Country Escape collections. It includes gifts, toys and pretty accessories to bring a slice of Tilda’s seaside into your home. From adorable whales and pretty Tilda dolls to hanging mobiles, appliqué blankets and summer scarves, the designs will take you on a journey of the perfect seaside holiday. And for the first time in a Tilda book, there are also some knitting and crochet project ideas!

This Fisher Girl’s dress is made using the Stine Grey-Green fabric, but Tone has made an alternative with a blue fabric, which gives a completely different look. The pattern for the knitted cardigan is also included in the book.

Tilda's Seaside IdeasDon’t miss the fantastic Tilda Seaside Life bundle, which includes 8 fat quarters of the latest Tilda fabric and a copy of Tilda’s Seaside Ideas. The fabrics are perfect for creating the projects featured in the book, so you can get sewing instantly and dream of being by the sea!

  1. Don’t know if anyone will see this, but I was all set to start the “Summer Girls” doll pattern found in Tilda’s Seaside Ideas book and it seems that the directions for the darling cardigan is incomplete! There are no instructions for the sleeves! Do you know where I can find an amendment/correction/errata for this pattern? Really bummed!

  2. Hi Marcia, if you go to page 30 of the book you’ll see the full list of instructions for how to knit the cardigan. First it tells you how to knit the trunk, then the sleeves, and finally you knit these two bottom sections together. The sleeve instructions are on the bottom left of the page, under the ‘YOU WILL NEED’ section. I hope this helps?
