Hooked on Ute!

I started to count all the dolls I've made using Ute's patterns, and it is way over 10. Wow! I stopped trying to think why I love making trolls so much. Then I realized that it was because back when I was a little girl those plastic Troll dolls with the different colored hair were so popular. I wasn't allowed to have one. Don't know why, but when I'd whine to have a Troll while at the dime store, my Mother would always say NO! I guess that plus their big noses is what attracts me to them so much. This is Ute's pattern "Oggie". I'm made three dolls from this pattern already & I think I'm going to have to make more. According to Ute's pattern, I cam make up to 10 a year and even sell them as long as I indicate that she is the pattern designer...of course. I want everyone to met Ute!



Click on Ute's Trolls homepage to see Oggie. I'm not sure if she has the pattern for sell there on her website, but I'm guessing that if you write her, she has it. I also bought Crow Mother from her & Peter the Pack Rat. I'm thinking next month once the weather gets awful again, I'll bring them out and make them too.

This is Oggie the snaggle tooth Troll. The baby is Mae. Albert loves Scotties (to pet not to eat!).
Enjoy them as much as I had costuming them. Thanks Ute for the addiction!

Dot, all your trolls are fabulous. You have to bring them in a couple of weeks. I'm feeling a tiny bit guilty about not working on my Little Folk and here you have made an army of trolls! Great job, they are adorable.

Dot, your trolls are wonderful. I can't wait to see all of them in a couple of weeks. I am feeling a tiny bit guilty about not having finished mine, I hope it will be done by the meeting. Great job, they are adorable.
