"le Petit Acrobate" (the little acrobat)

Our newest challenge at Cloth and Clay is to 
design a "bird doll." I'm using a styrfoam ball as the 
base for my head, attached to a clothe body.  
I decided to use HUGE 26 mm eyes 
(to give it that "baby bird" look).
Wool felt for the eyelids and Lutradur 
over heavy cardstock for the beak.
The legs are fabric with wooden dowel insets 
and pipe-cleaner feet!  The feet will be covered 
with florist tape and then a coat or two of Gesso.
