Sheila the Aussie Troll Dolly

G'Day, I am Sheila from the Land Downunder!



This is Sheila. She is a troll dolly. I wanted to see if I could make one of these as a challenge. I watched Lord of the Rings recently which was full of ugly critters.

Sheila can wear her hair up or down. She likes basking in the sun. She is cute ugly. My son reckons she looks like something out of Priscilla Queen of the desert. I think the belly button could have been a row lower, but what the heck she is a troll! I hope you enjoy her.
