Dotee Doll Swap Idea
Hey everyone I am putting this topic here so I wont clog up the Swap board, because this is just and idea right now =D I already blogged about it on my profile page, lol. but here is the jist of it.
Ok So I just found out about these awesome dolls! I know that they are called a lot of different things but the original styles are called Dotee Dolls after the creator, Dotothy Christian. I looooooooove these I have been seeing around other craft sites that people are swapping and trading them like ATC's (artist trading cards)!!!! I want in on it soooo bad! And I want to get all my friends here on CO+K in on it too!
Here are the details on them, they are 4-7 inches tall, no arms or legs sticking out, a ribbon or something to hang them by and a cute tail dangling from the bottom. Other than that you can make them how ever you please.
So I am wondering,
*who would be interested in doing these as a swap?
*when would be a good time to do it?
*have you ever made them before?
*Share you great ideas here!

What a great idea, going to give these a go just need to find some fabric and other bit and bobs first
Yes love this idea as a swap!
lol I'm glad you two like the idea I am totally working on right now while jammin out to Ru Paul <3 Disco beats get my gears turning hahaha!
I looooove the idea! I would totally be in for this swap
answering the questions:
-I've never done any of this dolls before (in fact... first time I see them xD)
- best time for this swap... any time after the first week of July please hahaha...
- any other ideas... hmmm... maybe put a theme? I don´t know... like "winter inspired dolls" or something like that... that way you can keep on making this swap in the future just changing the theme
Yey! I just finished my first one heres a peek before the project gets posted!!!

ohhh i love those doll. i would swap those!
I'm in-they are very cool.I haven't seen this doll form before but they do look great for an on-going swap.Possibly alternate months or every 6 weeks and a theme sounds fun but can get tiring for the host after a while.
They are slightly larger version of the little women pins I used to make with hangers and dangles.
Looking forward to seeing a How -To ;)
I would be interested in a swap, but I'm over my head into swaps at the moment. The last two go out on the 18th and the 29th of July.
Debs is right... maybe the theme idea could be a bit tiring for the host.... but people who join the swap could help with that too!
or we could even change hosts after a while (if Pam is ok with that hahaha)... fun ideas could appear
Yeah I think we should deffinetly do one at then end of July and with some sort of theme, maybe like an autum/fall theme? I love the seasons and then we can have different rounds and others can host! woot!
Love autumn/fall idea.Please could we do Halloween theme one miss? These are a great form to explore lots of ideas.
well i found some bits to give my first doll a try (just need to get my hands to work dum M.E/CFS)
Yeah. The Halloween one sounds like a great idea. Maybe you can host that one when it gets closer
I would definitely be up for keeping this going!!
Pammerz-You host the first and I'll be more than happy to host Halloween.
This may seem crazy but I'm making Christmas decs over the next 24 hrs to submit for a magazine so it all "falls" into place ;0)
We'd love to know what you think - Leave your reply right away
