5.0 out of 5 stars gorgeous 26 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Gorgeous book, super pictures as always with Tilda. Although similar designs to other books still enough change to make a worthwhile buy even if just to look at the pictures. I LOVE it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tilda`s Christmas Ideas 10 July 2011
Format:Paperback
Great little book. Clear instructions and easy to follow. Not too time consuming so can easily make several in a short time.
Tilda is a talented toy maker and I recommend her other books to all toymakers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy, Borrow. 25 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback
Very dissapointed at how few projects there were in the book and how similar they are to each other.
Very glad that I borrowed a copy from the library before spending good money on it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very "samey" 26 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have two of these Tilda books and they are both very similar to each other. Some nice ideas, and the photos are lovely, but you would definitely have to have a sewing machine and be quite adept at using it to get any sort of value out of these books. Also, I cant source the materials listed for the projects, so have to be content with what I can get my hands on here. Good for an inspiration source, but I doubt I will be using it for much else.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing New 25 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love all the Tilda Books, but I think enough is enough. If we have seen one angel we must have seen twenty by now and they are all made the same. I have made many of the items in previous books, and they are beautiful, but there was nothing new in this book, and I was really bored and disappointed with this purchase. My advise is if you have the previous Christmas books, don't bother with this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars nice book but a bit disappointing 16 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
was looking forward to receiving this book to make christmas decorations but somehow felt let down when I received it, thebook arrived quickly was well packed etc. Trouble is I was not expecting mostly figures which were also a bit big and the Tilda fabrics are only available in small amounts and then they are quite expensive and difficult to source.

Can't see me making much from the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars festive beauties 8 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is beautiful. It is really easy to follow and is a fab addition to my collection of this particular author. The characters are very folk art and look stunning. The book is jam packed with lovely Christmas ideas and again I would say that this is another must have. A lovely present for a sewer and has beginner friendly instructions and diagrams. I really love this book and will be using it to create the father Christmas this year. Highly recommeded.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware 7 Dec 2013
By Simon61
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although the content is good, this book is little more than a 'commic'!
Don't get caught out, just check the number of pages!

Figures are rather too twee for me... still it does have some good ideas
