I got an order for several dolls a while back and thought I should get a move on making them or my patron might forget about me! She doesn't need them untill Christmas so I have plenty of time to complete the rest.
The first one I completed was a Florida Atlantic University Owl. It really gave me a lot of trouble! The lettering was so hard for me! I just couldn't get it perfect. I made the 'eye-brows' and beak with paper clay. When I look at the photo the imperfections are screaming at me. Luckily, I don't think they are as noticable when I am looking at the real thing (or I would go crazy and start all over again!).
