Tilda Sew Along Part 5

Well ladies... my angel is finished!! She is adorable in my eyes! 

Below is the final stage of the Sew Along. 

Sew the two layers of fabric together to form a tube.
Fold over the raw edge and do a gather stitch on your machine.


Gather up

 Sew the pantaloons
Right sides together to make them look like the photo above

Sew the inside seam

Put them on your doll.
Fold over top edge and pin down.
Hand sew them to the doll so they do not come off

Put skirt on your doll
Gather in as much as you can
Pin to the doll
Hand sew the skirt to the doll

Trace wings onto the fabric


Sew through the double thickness leaving the largest round edge
of the wing open



Turn in the right way
Stuff slightly then sew the lines as shown above

Turn the open seam inside the wing
I handstitched them onto the back of the angel gathering them in.
I liked the finished look this gave.. but it is up to you if you want to finish the wings this way

The back of my angel

Now to embellish.
I LOVE embellishing and finishing the things I create.


I made here some little shoes.
These are made with felt on the sole of her foot and a ribbon rose for the top.

Click HERE to take a look at another Tilda doll I made. This gives more of an idea of how to make them. They are very simple and effective.

I added a rosebud to the top right of her dress and off course some ribbon and the crown. I purchased the crown from Puddlecrafts in the UK. Click HERE to visit their website

A closer look












I have really enjoyed putting this Sew Along together.. 
Thank you for taking part.
I would LOVE to see some photos. Please email them to me so I can show them on my blog.
I hope you enjoyed it and have learnt something.

I hope to do another in the future... Maybe not a doll but something else

Have a great week
