Tilda doll pattern – free download

As soon as I came across these Tilda doll pattern free downloads I couldn’t wait to share them with you. I just love the Scandi aesthetics of the designs by Tone Finnanger. And how beautiful are the fabrics? I’ve shared the basic free Fia doll pattern as well as two free variations with clothing from the Bon Voyage and Lazy Days fabric ranges. I have also shared the Autumn Angel doll (also free to download). You can dress your doll and create her hair exactly as the patterns… or go rogue (as I intend to) and create something unique. Either way the Tilda world created by Tone Finnanger (who lives on a small island in a Norwegian fjord) is definitely a very beautiful place to find yourself for a little while. Hope you enjoy X

What you need

To make the basic Fia doll, download the basic Fia doll free pattern by clicking here

Or simply use the scroll buttons at the bottom of the embedded PDF pattern below and read the pattern on your chosen device:

FiaDoll-FreePattern

If you’d prefer a pattern than includes the clothing, scroll further down the page. I’ve also shared two other free Fia doll patterns that include instructions on how to make their different outfits.

Materials

  • Tilda doll fabric or any softer quality chambray fabric 55cm x 50cm (21¾in x 19¾in).

(I like the look of this Kona fabric on Etsy which comes in dark, medium and light skin tones. I also like this natural cotton/linen fabric and preshrunk quality calico both available in pale neutral shades). 

Also recommend: 

  • Sewing machine
  • Matching thread
  • Sewing needle for hand sewing
  • Larger needle for yarn
  • Flower stick or chopstick for turning and stuffing
  • Thick paper for copying patterns
  • Black hobby paint and a small metal-headed pin for eyes
  • Soft pink lipstick, rouge or stamp pad, and a dry brush for rosy cheeks

Making the doll – before you start

  • Copy or glue all the pattern pieces onto thick paper and then cut out the shapes.
  • When sewing the seams, reduce your stitch length to 1.5mm–1.6mm.
  • Unless otherwise instructed, sew on the outer line of the pattern. Generally, no seam allowances are included in the patterns, except for areas marked with ES (extra seam allowance).
  • Cut out the shapes after sewing whenever possible, cutting ⅛in–¼in (3mm–6mm) outside the sewn line. For pieces that need to be cut out before sewing, add a normal seam allowance, and trim down after sewing.
  • To get a good shape, cut snips in the seam allowance where seams curve tightly inwards.
  • Stuff well, using a stick to fill small areas.
  • Sew up openings with matching thread and small slipstitches
