Hobbits


September 21st, 1937 was the publication day of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit". It is also Respect for The Aged Day in Japan.
Nuno has been making beautiful cloth dolls for a quarter of century. On the site are many photos of cloth dolls and various doll kits. One of the dolls is Merry, one of Frodo's hobbit friends from LOTR.
Meanwhile here is a gorgeous doll house version of Bag End.
Anyone else making Hobbits? Please comment with a link!

I love the Tolkien books, and now the movies. Several years ago my doll club had a challenge - make a character from a book. I chose Bilbo, from The Hobbit:
