The English translation of the new Tilda book (translated as we speak) is due in November. The name is “Homemade & Happy”.
For those of you who are into both paper and sewing, the Happiness is Homemade paper pad is paper with craft and sewing motives. Perfect for scrapping about your craft and sewing projects or for cards and gifts for fellow crafters.
There is also a pastel vintage Christmas theme going trough, so you can choose to use some of the motives for sweet crafty Christmas ornaments.
The pad consists of 24 double-sided sheets, 3 of each design, including cut out sheets with homemade angels, lambs and reindeer as well as sewing equipment images.
You get little woven paper heart baskets to cut out, sheets with button, thread and needle-cards and wings to use for your craft projects. There is also paper with simpler designs suitable for backgrounds. Here is a preview of some of the designs.
Have a creative weekend!
We have followed the sweet and entertaining Amador “Amadoreros” on YouTube for some time as he flics trough Tilda books, and “houl’s” about products from his craft room in the US.
He has a passion for life, craft and quirkiness, and inspires many with his honest and humorous approach.
For a long time he has prepared to learn to sew. Collecting books and ordering fabric and accessories.
A little while ago (we didn’t discover it until now) he had a breakthrough.
His joy is infectious as three very pretty new Tilda strawberries see the light.
He later moved on to a Tilda doll, planning to get more and more advanced, but here is the clip of the day Amador learned how to sew. And his message is “Everyone can do it!”
We all have to start somewhere, and Amador will almost certainly inspire those of you that want to learn to sew from scratch.
Best of luck!
