At an initial look they do seem suitable for beginners but only to a certain extent. The instructions tend to be split over several pages with a lot of `Read this chapter several pages back to do this'. There weren't any instructions that I could see about actually sewing the doll together and, if I hadn't already made my first doll using a similar technique, I would have been utterly confused by the pattern cutting and sewing explanation. I really wouldn't recommend it for beginners unless you have someone more experienced helping you. However, once you get the hang of it, most of the projects in this set of books and the others (such as Tilda's Summer Ideas) are based around very similar patterns. So get the hang of one doll pattern and you pretty much will be able to do all the others with slight variations in clothing.

The books didn't really have much on how to actually assemble the dolls so I went with what knowledge I had from making my first doll. It's not a complicated design so it was just a matter of stitching the legs and arms to the body with whip stitch. I did use doubled cotton thread as I was a little concerned with whether the limbs were a tad too flimsy but I think that's a personal choice and probably depends on how much you stuff the limbs.

You cannot buy Tilda hair from any shop for love nor money. And when you can find it, it's a very small amount for what they charge. So, I decided to use wool I found in Hobbycraft. You get loads of the stuff and you can use it for future projects/dolls. It's a tad fluffier that the Tilda hair. The instructions to add the hair were very basic and I ended up ignoring them altogether for my own method. I added a lot more pins, styling and stitching the hair as I went.

If you have the other Tilda books then it's not worth buying this collection as they are just collated from Tone Finnanger's other publications. However, it's a nice collection and good value for money if you haven't got the other books. The only downside is that the templates come as a single sheet and need enlarging by 400% which is a pain. The sheet is also stuck to the outside of the slip case and if you remove it and slot it in with the books, everything is then too tight to get the books out of the slip case!
As I have most of the other Tilda books I will be passing this on as a gift. However, if you don't have the others then it's probably worthwhile ordering. The only negative is the template sheet: the other books come with full size templates as part of the books so you can just trace them rather than messing about with a photocopier.

I am very dissapointed with this collection of books, feel cheated out of patterns that are mensioned in the book to download, only to find out this service does not exist! Read other reviews, someone mentioned patterns enclosed in the box, but no patterns! Or even at the back of each book to enlarge on a photocopier!

Fortunately I am skilled enough to develop patterns and adabt patterns, but the whole purpose for me to purchace this collection, was to save time, also if you buy any product, it should supply exactly whats on the tin! Trade discription would have a field day! I will be contacting them and the publisher to make a complaint!

This collection of the authors' most recent books is beautiful. The lovely characters are stunning and the unstructions are so easy to follow. I highly recommend this collection as it will not disappoint you at all. The books are hardbacked and contain a template page that can easily be enlarged. The only trouble is that you won't know were to begin first as you will want to do all of them. Absolutely wonderful, a lovely present for a sewer. This collection is a real must have! Beautiful.

I received this box set for Christmas..and although I have all the 'Tilda' books..the presentation of this set is just lovely.The design of the box and the colours/patterns make it a delight to look at....I love my Tilda books..although..I tend to drool at the pictures more than actually make anyhting...this box set makes it easier to focus on the actual 'making'!!!...it would make a great gift and is a good price for the quality of the whole package.

A joy to have, lovely ideas, only thing is I prefer her full sized books so I don't have to up size the the patterns as in this collection of little books. But as I have all her bigger books with full sized patterns, I'm ok, but unless you have the means to enlarge the patterns, you might be disappointed with this lovely set of books.

I just adore these little books. Lovely designs and beautiful photography. I've only got one other of her books and yes, some of the designs are duplicated, but these are way out-numbered by fresh projects. I've earmarked at least 10 things I'd love to make, so all in all, great value for money.

I was disappointed with these books because although it says in them that you can log onto a website and download the full size patterns (i emailed the company and they said the author didn't like that idea) you cannot!! Its ok if you've got a printer, but i haven't!
