I made this little owl dotee doll for Ludi in the the fall dotee doll swap. I cut out a simple goddess-like shape from cotton and stuffed it up nice and squishy with fiber fill. The barn owl image and the owl skeleton were painted on with acrylics. The tatted border is vintage, handmade that I found in a little shop here. The tail is made with vintage wool yarn, the kind with little loops every inch or so. I wanted to make a bird-themed piece for Ludi but couldn't get the idea of some sort of skeleton out of my mind. This was my solution. A mash-up of themes!
