Tilda Swap…..

Finally I can show you what I made and sent to my swap Partner Michelle for our Tilda swap, you could either make a design of Tilda’s or use Tilda fabrics I chose to use her fabric, I had fun platting her hair and making her dress and pantaloons I’d forgotten had lovely it is to dress up a doll.

Meet “Tilda” the long legged doll I made for Michelle dressed in her prettiest Tilda finery, I also included a special something for her to hold……

One of my crocheted cotton blocks I’ve been making recently I thought it went really well with Tilda’s outfit SmileI hope Michelle doesn’t mind but I borrowed this photo  and the following two photo’s from her blog as I forgot to take one before posting her parcel off.

I also included some yummy treats…….

as well as a bottle filled with Tilda buttons, a pretty aqua journal as I know Michelle loves her journals as well as some soap I picked up on my travels in Tassie this year while on holidays with my sister Anne.

Michelle has emailed me to say she loves her new friend and  has placed her on her rocking chair amongst her gorgeous quilts, so that’s a relief! I’ve loved making/sourcing/collecting bits and pieces for this swap now to start looking at our next swap which is themed “spots” Smile
