forest trolls!

My boys and I recently read a great old Norwegian book about trolls we got from their Grandma. One night after reading my son Jude said "Mom! You should make a troll!"

These are an adaptation of my felt dolls mixed with some techniques and materials I use for jointed animals. I was laughing to myself a lot in the studio as they came together. They've passed the ultimate kid test in our house: The trolls are getting tucked into bed with my boys every night :-)
