Tilda love

I'm not really into girly-girl crafting (dolls, lots of floral prints, etc.), but I have to say when I saw this book in my Amazon recommendations list I had to look twice. Tilda anything is hugely popular here in Germany and while I really like some of her fabrics, I just think they're too expensive. However, I could...perhaps...be tempted to buy just a little...for the right project. 

Enter Tilda's Studio: Over 50 fresh projects for you and your home. This book looks really sweet and has some pretty creative project ideas. I'm not convinced I'd love any particular projects in our home, but maybe there's something in here for my nieces.
I think the little bird cage is especially sweet. It reminds me of the mobile I made for my first niece a while back. Then today I saw a blog post on how to DIY a fabric covered bird cage and thought it was pretty clever. Somebody should try that!

What about you? Are you a Tilda fan? Do her fabric and craft project styles appeal to you?

I'm not exactly what you call a "Tilda girl", but often choose fabrics that are with bolder prints and colors. BUT there is something about Tilda fabrics that really appeals to my feminine side. If this was the stack of fabrics lying in my sewing room right now, I think I could have just as much fun with them.
