The Long Way to Trollville!

Lorraine emailed me shortly after ((or during??)) My trip to Sisters Oregon when I had pictures of my Troll Sister included in some of the posts! I love trolls! I used to play with them when I was little, envied my aunt’s collection of them….I still love them!

Well, Lorraine said she had some troll FABRIC and was sending me some--

And ….I waited…and she waited…and nothing showed for quite a long time!

Well, today, I am happy to report that this package showed up in my mailbox..a large SQUISHY one! The Trolls had arrived!

This is SO funny!! I can honestly say I have never seen troll fabric. Never seen trolls in shorts either..lol! I love it!

I have a feeling I’m going to have to gift some of this on to TONYA who is collecting ugly interesting fabrics for her Legos quilt! What a hoot!….what say you Ton, or are these guys too big to cut up into your little pieces? :cD

Come on now….didn’t you love trolls back in “the day”??

Thanks Lorraine! It looks like there was a wrong number in the zipcode and that is why it took so long! I’m happy it is here…..this really made my day!

    Ye, I loved trolls back in the day... I envied my cousin's collection. I remember ours did have clothes, but we may have made the trolls clothes!

  2. I love the troll fabric! I too also had trolls when I was a kid and thought they were cool. I've just come across your blog last week and have been following you on your Alaska trip. It looked like you were having a ball.

  3. Love the troll fabric. I remember a day when my little sister cut the hair on one of my troll dolls. When I got mad she innocently said, "It will grow back." : )

  10. That fabric is so fun! I can't wait to see what you decide to use it for. It will have to be big enough pieces to show off those cute trolls! Some fussy cutting is definately in order.

  11. I LOVE THAT FABRIC. Oh sorry didn't mean to shout, but it is just fantastic!!!! Can't wait to see them in a project.
    I had trolls too. I think my favorite had blue hair.

  12. So so funny....
    I did have a Troll when they were all the rage and it had pink hair.
    I don't know what happened to it.
    I love your site, your stories and all your inspiration........

  13. Hi, I remember we used to play with these trolls as kids. The fabric is pretty wild. Looking forward to see how you will put it to good use:-)

  14. My kids had a huge collection of trolls in the 90's, they all came with outfits on. I have started finding them here and there around the house. Been purging lots o stuff now they are both in college. Will try to remember to send you a pic of them when I get them all together. When I was growing up, use to play with my moms trolls from the 50s.

  16. Oh yes I had trolls growing up!

  17. My very first sewing projects were troll clothes. My 3rd grade class picture shows me with my troll hanging around my neck like a pendant. Somehow I lost that troll that day and I never knew where it went.

  18. I sent you a photo of some troll fabric I have made a pillow case from. You should look for some of it!

  19. I loved them back in the day, and I love them now! As a four year old, I snuck my mom's camera and took pictures of my troll babies. Boy, was she mad when she got back that roll of film! But I was unrepentant.

  21. I love the troll fabric! I wish it was at my house!!! I can just see a quilt made with it - fussy cut - any child would love it (including me).
