I have fallen absolutely in love with this Tilda Garden Angel Kit I love all the tilda books and although I love drooling at the angels etc in the books, I have never quite got round to making my very own one, I guess I have always thought were perhaps a bit too fiddly for even crafty olde me.
This kit contains pretty much everything ( bar the toy filling for stuffing ) that one would need to create the playful garden angel. And I do think having most of everything there in front of me, makes things so much easier and why a kit can be a very worthwhile investment. No hunting round the craft room looking for things, that I may or may not have. And I always have some toy stuffing lying around.
Of course I felt like I had opened the best party bag ever when I spied all that came in the kit, all the lovely fabrics and little trims and extras, even angel hair. The fabric for her snug felt coat, did vary a little in colour from the photograph, it was more of a blue green than lime green, and therefore not a perfect match for the lime green trousers, but in all honestly for me, it didn't matter one jot, as this more blue coloured fabric I rather prefered anyway. It has a greeny cute gardening pinny and cheeks blushed pink. This angel is a picture of pure charm. The garden angel kit is suitable for sewing enthusiasts, or anyone with basic sewing skills. The finished angel would make a lovely gift, and extra special having been hand made. Or indeed, after the effort of making it oneself would be a nice treat to keep, and would make an extra special touch to any room. My plan is to make it for Miss. Poppins and I cannot wait to get making. It also comes with all the templates you need....
I think I shall enjoy being kept busy making her on these balmy nights, whilst the children are sound asleep. I also can't wait to get my hands on the new Tilda book, it looks delightful.
So, watch this space, I am feeling brave and hopefully I shall be back soon with a pretty Tilda angel I have made all by my very self.
