It was a great week, but I am glad it is over now....
I also made my sister a tilda doll for her birthday! It´s an angel in brown... Found myself a new way of doing hair on a tilda doll and I love it! I use whool instead of the expensive tilda hair!!! a knot of whool is about €0,99 and I can do so many tilda dolls with it I can't figure out how many but ... a lot!!!!!
I love the way the doll turned out. It is also the first one with a sweater!!!!
Hope she will love it as much as I do!?!
