Meet my new friend

Remember back in January when I made these 2 Tilda dolls... well I enjoyed making them so much I thought I would have a go at another kind of Tilda doll. So let me introduce you to.....


Miss Pixie.





Isn't she so sweet and pretty. I do have a question for all you doll makers out there. I'm having troubles with creases in my dolls neck. What am I doing wrong? I stuff the body really tight with toy stuffing until I can harldy get anymore in there but still the neck creases. Any advice would be great as this really annoys me.






Very soon we will have some Tilda products at work so I am very excited about that. I have already asked Lillian if I can do the samples.




Today I need to put the finishing touches on some mothers day gifts and get them in the post.


Have a wonderful day. I hope you find some sewing time.

looks fabulous before you turn your doll makes some small snips in the seam of the neck before turning .and then when stuffing stuff small pieces at a time and because i love to sew dolls this tool here http://fabricaddictions.com.au/p/365302/barbara-willis-stuffing-forks.html the stuffing fork best invention ever..i def reccomend it.

Miss Pixie is very cute. I have no advice for neck wrinkles but will try to remember what Lisa wrote for future reference. Have a great day! Tracee xx

Gorgeous dollies Leanne! I used to get the creased necks too, but after reading Lisa's hint, I am sure I used to put small amounts in at a time by the time I got to the neck!

She's so cute Leanne. Lisa is right - small pieces of stuffing. You can use a sate stick if you don't have a stuffing tool.

Your doll is lovely!

Hi Leanne your doll looks great. The toy stuffing I use comes in tine pieces and enables me to control the amount I am putting into each part of the doll. I agree little bits at a time then gently pushed in with a stuffing tool. I use the end of an artist paint brush. Happy doll making. xx
