If I were a fish in the sea....

Here is my newest dottie doll creation. This little fish is swimming all the way to Australia for a dottie doll swap! He is made of batked quilter's cotton, acrylic felt and numerous beads and spangles. His face is needle felted with wool. Who wouldn't love those google eyes????

Aussie Dottie Doll

This little critter is going all the way to Australia! She is a hostess gift for someone hosting a "If I were a Butterfly" song Dottie Doll swap on my website, ! She has a batik cotton based body, acrylic felt bases for face and ears that are felted with Alpaca roving. The Joey is made of felted Alpaca roving and wool felt with a sculpted face. He is tied into Mama's pocket by a string. I finished it off with a hanger of vintage glass beads in striated color layers that remind me of the beautiful rock formations in Australia!
