This is undoubtedly a beautiful book with ideas for truly gorgeous toys and decorations in it. I read through it and then dashed off to my local fabric store to buy fabric to make a princess doll.
This is where the BUT comes in! Most of the other reviews here comment on the books beauty and at some point say 'haven't had time to make anything yet'. Unfortunately it becomes a rather frustrating experience when you do. The fact that there are variations on many of the patterns means that there is an awful lot of 'as for page 109' in the instructions, so you have to flick back and forth many times before you are confident of the directions. Quite a few of the templates are mis-labelled - OK it's not the end of the world if something says its an arm when it's clearly a leg, but it's annoying. The book instructs you to cut out the toys after you have sewn the seams (which is an idea that is new to me but may be familiar if you make small, detailed toys like these?) which means the toy piece templates don't have seam allowances. There are some templates for clothes and I have no idea from the template or the instructions (which read in places as though they have been badly translated) whether the seam allowance is included or I should add it. Again, it's not the end of the world and I can work it out through trial and error (and I tend to tinker with patterns anyway) but it's annoying. It seems that the patterns weren't tested properly, which is a shame.
So in summary, beautiful ideas, but patterns / instructions are not of the same standard and less than I would hope for the price of the book.

This is a lovely book full of new ideas and the same dolls as before but with variations.
They are so pretty cannot wait to start one of the ballerinas,these would look lovely in a little girls fairy princess room with the soldiers for a boys room fantastic pictures a lovely book to look through even if you do not want to make them yourself.

Did you ever open a book that was so beautiful that you just longed to jump into the pages...? This book made me feel like that. The scenes created by Tone Finnanger are so dreamlike that they are almost impossibly lovely. All of the styling is inspirational; I like to think that the house looks like a perfect version of mine ;-P

Sadly I find myself reading this book for the first time now, with a 10 year old daughter and not years ago, with a 2 year old one. I say sadly because the vast majority of the projects are figures, characters....toys for want of a better word. Although every single one of the toys is heirloom-worthy and would no doubt be treasured for years, I think these things have to be given to a person during their childhood for them to have really long lasting appeal.

So in some ways, the book made me feel a little melancholy, that the time for telling my child stories about Princesses and unicorns, may be long gone. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that like me, Beth's love for fairytales is rekindled in her teens and I can help furnish her bedroom with some of these divine little ballerinas, soldiers and angels in just a few short years.

I doubt I would have had time to make these beautiful objects when my daughter was tiny anyway; this book does not claim to contain simple, easy or quick projects, but it does offer the opportunity to create something beautiful, polished and unique....from scratch.

There are some non-figurine decorations such as fabric teapots which would look lovely in any home and could even be used as pin cushions and a Princess and the Pea wall hanging that I can't wait to make out of all the scraps of fabric that I can't possibly part with I have been saving for just such a project.

I have quite a few of her books but haven't made anything from it yet too busy with other things but I do like her bboks because you don't have to enlarge the patterns just trace them off or scan and print them

After a disappointing Tilda's Studio I wasn't expecting this to be as good as it was, I really love the book. Lots of lovely projects to try in Tone's usual easy to understand instructions, pretty fabrics and overall a smashing book. I would buy this even if I thought I may not make anything from it.

Love this book and with my granddaughter helping, we have made the ballerina doll. It is worth cutting out a little larger than the template as we had difficulty in turning inside out. It is best to buy the Tilda skin, as this adds to the quality of the finished doll. Great fun ! will do other projects from this book.

Great book with lots of nice projects and ideas in the typical Tilda style. I would say that this book doesn't offer anything really exciting but all the projects are nice and the book itself would make a nice gift for a craft loving friend.
