BFF Tildas

Hello, Dear Ones.
I know I was supposed to be sewing for my granddaughter and soon to be grandbaby, 
but I got sidetracked and am making Tildas for me!
I'm a mess, I know! ;)
We all know what BFF means - Best Friends Forever.
What a blessing to have such a close friend.
 Well, that's what I've made, BFF Tildas.
They just love being with each other.

 This is Sandy. 
She's a pretty little thing with naturally curly hair.

 She loves to wear her overalls, leggings and sandals.

This is Nina. 
She and Sandy like to dress alike but they always keep a little individuality in their attire. 
Both have on their little overalls with huge pockets.
 Their T-shirts, trims on their overalls, scarfs and leggings are a little bit different.

 Here's Nina's leggings and sandals. 
Oops, yes, that is a little bit of string on her legging which I didn't see until I uploaded my snaps. 
Oh, goess on, doesn't it?
 Now the girls have gotten down on the floor to discuss that girl in History class and boys! :)
 Nina and Sandy
Sandy and Nina.
You just rarely see one without the other.
BFFs just chilling.

As you can see, I'm having fun for myself. 
Maybe shame on me but I'll get back to sewing for my grands.
I can't seem to get the necks of the Tildas stuffed right because they always wind up with a wrinkle! 
I hate that but I'll keep on trying. Ha ha!

I'm joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Best Friend
This is the theme song from "Eddie's Father" a sitcom from many moons ago about a boy and his dad, but I love it and wanted you to hear it

People let me tell you about my best friend
He's a warm-hearted person who'll love me to the end
People let me tell you about my best friend
He's a one boy cuddly toy my up my down my pride and joy

People let me tell you now he's so much fun
Whether we're talking man to man
Or whether we're talking son to son
Cause he's my best friend now
~ sung by Harry Nilsson

I have some sewing to do for the Pups and hubby and me...for fall and winter! The Pups love their PJ's that I've made every year for them and since they've grown a bit...and the old PJ's have worn out...they need new ones. ♥

  28. Love your BFFs Shelia, So cute together. I don't think anyone will mind if you take time out to make something this cute and fun. You posed them in such a cute way.

    Happy Tilda doll making.
    Love, Jeanne

    PS I loved the pics of your daughter's baby shower.

    little friends. I sure do!

    Thanks for sharing them with us.

  34. I swear, you could open a business and make a fortune!

    Have a nice week, Shelia.

  35. I agree with Smiling Sally. You need to go into business! Love these Tildas too. :o)

  36. Nina and Sandy are awfully cute, and they look so happy! Not everyone has a BFF, it must be a very special thing to have one. I hope you have one, dear Shelia. And don't worry about wrinkles, they add character, so I've heard as I've developed them myself. :)
    Hugs, Cindy

  37. I just keep looking at these charming Tildas, they just make me smile. What good work you do. It looks like it takes a lot of time to make them so special.


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
