Tilda’s friends are here and just waiting for you to bring them to life in Tone Finnanger’s book Crafting Tilda’s Friends!
It’s summer in Tilda’s garden, with bumble bees, whimsy cats, flowers, rabbits, frogs and dragonflies… In this book you will find ideas on how to decorate both indoors and outdoors, and maybe you can get the summer feeling to start a little sooner and last a little longer. A lazy summer day can be even nicer if you have a needlework project to work on. Sew what needs to be sewn on a sewing machine in advance, then pack everything else you need and some lunch and spend the day at the beach – bring some friends along too.
Many of the items can be used all year round. or you could adapt them with different colours and fabrics to fit another season better. You can, for example, sew red bird houses or change the garden angel’s sun hat to a root thread wreath for Christmas. The bunnies can easily be changed to Easter bunnies with just some pastel-coloured clothes. All the items featured are sewn, appliqued and painted to the size of the patterns given at the back of the book, but you can easily enlarge the patterns on a photocopier.
