Tilda is designed by Tonne Finnager, a European designer from Norway. Her ultra feminine, whimsical, somewhat shabby chic style mesmerizes me. I love all things Tilda, her fabrics, her designs, her embellishments and her books.
Tilda Designs are Whimsical and Unique
I first came across Tilda designs in a bookstore while on vacation. This is the first book I bought. Its full of patterns for reindeer, cushions, dolls and other stunning whimsical designs. I was hooked by page 5. This is not an affiliate post I just want to share Tilda designs in case you haven’t heard about them.
This quilt pattern looks so modern and fresh.
This towel post inspires me to make several more new towels with frilly edges.
Its ironic that I have a new craft room and do crafts all the time but I have no pin cushion. This is a great design to try I need a plywood sized sticky note to remind me to make one.
These little bears are perfect for a baby or all strung along as a Christmas swag. The plaid ones are my favorite. What do you think?
These paper designs are perfect for mod podge projects. A thrift store jewelry box somewhere needs these in their life.
In Canada the fabrics are not set out like they are in the USA. At least not where I shop. hey don’t place coordinating fabrics together, its not laid out for the buyer. Tilda fabrics come in collections (not sure where to buy them in Canada yet) I love the idea of coordinated fabrics the designer has placed together to be used together.
Then their are beautiful applique cushions. The soft sweet gentle design of everything Tilda makes had such a unique feel to it.
This craft room is whimsical and so bright and happy looking. Talk about a creative space to inspire creation.
My favorite Tilda designs are the dolls, they are all elongated with long legs and limbs, minimalist faces and a sense of whimsy. Here are a few of hundreds of examples.
There are numerous posts with sewing tutorials, the books and patterns are available in Canada and the USA. The fabric is a little harder to find. There are lots of free downloadable patterns as well.
Let me know if you love this design style as much as I do. Have you heard of Tilda before? Would you make one these? Love to hear your thoughts.
Thanks for dropping by.
