Hopalong Hollow Folk
Hopalong Hollowfolk hopped right out of my books!
My materials of choice include hand-dyed raw wool from my own sheep, alpaca wool and sheep's batting, the best of English and German Mohair fabrics, salvaged wool and cotton fabrics, All have glass eyes, most are clothed in 18th and 19th century bonnets and garb. In the tradition of Vintage stuffed toys, many of my creatures are pose-able due to the wire armature and wooden disc joints placed within the character. Animals from mice to badgers grow in sizes from
3" to 24".
Okay, maybe it wasn't that simple. I wanted to bring my book characters to life in 3-d and found the most satisfying , soft and realistic way to go about it, was to create them from fiber materials. I've done needlework all of my life, so working with fibers feels natural and cozy. Just like the animals that inhabit my books, these fiber characters have realistic, yet whimsical qualities and personalities. And, just like the characters in my books, no two are exactly alike.
Hopalong Hollowfolk are amusing and sprightly companions for the young at heart and not meant as toys for children.
Each month I'll feature at least 5 new creatures; first they will appear on my youtube channel so that you can see some of the creative process. After-which they'll promptly be put up for sale on this site. My Youtube channel is: Jeri Landers of Hopalong Hollow
