Baby Troll WIP

I have dyed some more fabric.  Actually, I have dyed a whole bunch of fabric.  One of my favorite colors is bronze.  When I saw it, I knew there was a little troll just waiting to be born.

Recently, I purchased  a pattern by Vickie Riley of Dinky Baby.  It's the fourteen inch beginner pattern.  Let me say, that this is by far one of the best patterns I have ever come across.  The directions are so clear and there are tons of pictures to guide you along.  What a blast!

So I decided to use that pattern with my new fabric and this little baby troll was born.  He or she ( I haven't decided yet) is made in the Waldorf tradition.  The doll is stuffed with clean and carded wool.  The fabric is cotton and washed many times to ensure the dye is completely set and rinsed out.  His/her features are hand embroidered.  The hair is a small crocheted wig cap with super-soft wool and eyelash yarn.

The last thing I need to do is make the doll a nappy and gown.  The gown will be made from hand-dyed velour.  I can't wait to finish this little troll.  Hopefully, it will be in my Etsy store in a few weeks.  Come back for more updates


  1. So cute! Looks like a boy to me. In the picture he looks green but you say he is bronze? I LOVE the little belly button.

  2. Yeah, he's definitely a he and green. :)
