A Project from my newest Tilda book.

I recently received my latest Tilda book and fell in love with the Cup Cake Fairies. All the things I needed to make one were on hand (have been internet shopping lately) and it really didn't take that long to make.

Did have a little trouble with the hair...........don't quite have the knack of it yet.............means I will have to make a few more, and I thought I had matched up the thread for the fringe but it was a little darker when sewn ! I didn't put the wings on either.

Don't you just love the buttons? They are really brads! I couldn't find any beads in the colour I wanted so looked in my scrap-book supplies and what do you know! I think they are perfect.

With my recent stay in hospital I decided I needed a bag for my slippers. A plastic bag just doesn't cut it and I made one from some fabric I recently found in Spotlight. It's not slippers but rain boots.......still it's shoes! It was quick and easy to make and I will be able to pop in a pair of slippers (or shoes when on holidays) the next time they are needed.

 You can visit my blog here to see what else I have been getting up to.

Fantastic projects Heather I love them. I have a couple of books that have Tilda in them and I have always wanted to make one of her dolls. They look very hard!!! Don't know if I am adequate enough to make one.
I use little draw string bags also to keep things straight in my suit case when I travel to CA to visit my family. It's so much easier that way. I do like your idea to use like fabrics.. like your shoe fabric for your shoes.. I think I just might have to make new bags.. thanks for the idea....
Great job love your projects!

I just love your Tilda doll, she's cute. Looks like you've been busy sewing lots of goodies there.
Cheers, Anita.
