Another Tilda :)

I've been busy with my hook and yarn again. I decided I needed to make another Tilda seeing as I gave the first one I made to my mother for her room at the nursing home. She loved it!

I decided to change it up a bit this time. I gave her plaits in her hair, "pants" under her dress and edged them with some lace that has ribbon the same as on her plaits and "ballet shoes" and I  shortened the sleeve length on the bodice of her dress. I also decided to edge her wings in some silver lurex thread that I had in my stash.

I made this one out of 4 ply crochet cotton, so it's smaller than the one I made for mum which was made out of 8 ply acrylic yarn.

This one is very dainty compared to hers but I love it.

I'm not sure about the heart I made for her to hold, I think it's a bit too large and bright for her, I may have to hunt through my stash for some thinner yarn or a smaller pattern and I may give her a smile.

But overall, I'm happy with her.

Here she is..... 

Update: I decided to send this sweet angel to my sister as a special gift of thanks for her help and support, while I was going through all the stress and organising of getting mum settled in the nursing home. She loves it!

I guess that gives me a good enough reason to make another for me! :) 


  1. A smile?!?!?if you would like to give her one oke,but she doesn't really need one I think....SHE makes ME smile!She's really adorable!


    1. It was just a thought. I was thinking her face was a bit plain, but the more I look at her, the less I am thinking of giving her a smile. I think I might leave her face as it is. But I'm still thinking about changing the heart, it looks a little too big for her lol
      Thanks for your lovely comments :)
