The days we photograph books are the busiest of the year, and there is not much time to take behind the scenes footage. However, we would like to share the few that wee managed to take during the Homemade & Happy photoshoot.
There is a lot of waiting for Tiril and a good book is necessary. Luckily the other model Totto has the ability to sleep for twenty hours a day.
Sølvi is captured while showing Tiril how to stand in the door for the Welcome picture.
The portrait of Totto is taken by Tiril (fake fur of course).
Ingrid is holding the reflector, trying to reflect daylight into the darker arias of the motif, and Tone is setting up the layout and adding pictures as we work.
One of the new series of products this season are cute collectable button cards with fabric buttons, wooden buttons and mini cotton reels. The cards have a sweet look with little vintage motives.
Our favourites at the moment are the fabric buttons, but that might change. The wooden buttons works well with the rustic cottage look in the new book, and the cotton reels can be used as sewing equipment for dolls, or on a mini sewing machine.
Buttons make sweet wheels on toy animals…

The English translation of the new Tilda book (translated as we speak) is due in November. The name is “Homemade & Happy”.
You can pre-order the English version at Stitch Craft Create or Amazon among others, or perhaps learn Norwegian and get the original version…
The Norwegian version is at the printers and will be out this month trough Tilda wholesalers and retailers, at Panduro Hobby, and trough the Norwegian publisher Cappelen Damm.
