This is one of my Tilda dolls that I made for a SAL that took place at an Italian blog.

It is so much fun and very inspring

and this doll I created for a competition on an Italian blog
I just want to inspire you 
and I also want you to experiment and be creative
I used calico for the body of this doll and tea dyed the fabric
I was also creative with her hair as well. 
So it will be freestyle SAL

You will have to send a photo to me via email of each stage so I can put them up on my blog
It will be inspiring to see what people create

Take the button and spread the word

I look forward to hearing from you

Hello Lisa,
I've been following you since several months ago and I love everything you create.
And I'd love to be part of this SAL, this will be my first time doing this, and I'm so excited. I bought that lovely book some weeks ago, but I won't be able to use Tilda fabrics =( I can not get them around here, but I'll try to choose the more similar to the branded fabrics. But I'm in!
Have a wonderful day! =D
