What materials did you use? Tilda doll making fabric, fabric for body and contrasting for clothes, face kit, lace, hair yarn, needles, sewing machine, pattern book by Tone Finannger. Not copyrighted so you can sell you items....so cool! Oh I thought I had better say that the skirt is made from Kaffe Fasset collection. I don't use Tilda fabrics. Too costly for me so I buy fabrics on ebay and use my own collection but those who do not have their own just as well buy Tilda's. Tone's collection is very lovely! Her body is made of a fine grade of tan wool from Ireland. I would not recommend using wool. I bought it before I knew there was Tilda doll making fabric. So buy that if you can.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time. Don't rush it. No hurry.......just do what the book says and don't try to reinvent the wheel. Tone has it down pat and so just use her directions and you will have your own Tilda dolls in no time whether it is animals or angels, home decor items and pillows, Lots of embroidery opportunities for those who like that. I don't but without an e-machine, I am force to do it by hand if I want to embellish with floss. It just looks better done by hand anyway and the designs in the book are easy and fast. Tone doesn't make things hard to the sewer, just fun. Try it!

Linpiration did you buy the Tilda skin from a company in the U.K. ? Or did you substitute? It looks like Linen? If you have any suggestions I really need some :)

Sorry I should have read your comments more carefully lol. I see that you say she is actually made of wool. Hmm. Still what are your best substitutes? I love these dolls!

Hi. I think you might be wrong about copyright for these dolls. You need to read the small print in the books and also on the website.
