Hello! I'm Tara. trixie and tilda is one of my Etsy shops!

Welcome to Trixie and Tilda!

I actually have THREE etsy shops:

-My main shop, open since 2006!! I have spooky cute black and white dolls, art and other illustrated goods!


-a digital download shop featuring my illustrations. Projects, art prints, scrapbook material and labels. You can print these images yourself or use them in crafts.

Hi, i'm Tara Fortin. I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Trixie and tilda is my third etsy shop, that I opened in 2017. I wanted a fun and cute side project to work on when I needed a break from my regular shop.

I had the idea to use my iPad Pro and Apple pencil to create fun illustrations, then turn those doodles into bright dolls for kids and cat lovers. I mainly work with black and white in my art, so this turned out to be a great way for me to relax and have fun drawing cool cats.

I use a production partner to have my art printed onto fabric. I then cut, match and sew each doll in my studio. The minky fabric is professionally printed so it remains bright, soft and crisp even after being washed.

All links are for ALL my shops. I don't have standalone social media for each shop. My personal shop site

- redbubble is where my designs are professionally printed on a TON of neat stuff. T-shirts,iphone cases,home goods, prints, totebags and MORE.

Questions? ASK AWAY! I don't mind answering questions about my process, my drawings, the products or shipping. Send a convo!

    I use Spoonflower to have my own original illustrations and designs printed onto fabric. I then use this fabric to hand make some of my plush dolls.

Frequently asked questions
Can you make me a custom cat/order?

I don't accept custom orders right now. Sorry!

Can you gift wrap this little guy?

Sure! I don't mind sending your order as a gift to someone. I can wrap in nice paper and include a gift packing slip that doesn't have the price. The most important thing that YOU can do is be clear that this is what you want, by adding important info in the "note to seller" box when you order, or by sending a "Conversation" to me. So please make sure you are clear WHO the gift is for and what address you want it sent to!

Care instructions

My dolls are made from minky fabric which has been professionally printed. I also prewash fabrics before creating the dolls. The colour will not fade, run or rub off. If you wash the doll in a machine with regular clothing detergent, the exterior fabric will not be damaged, but the stuffing may become shifted around and be lumpy, like any stuffed animal.
