Holiday Dotee Doll Swap
Heres the general info on Dotee Dolls,
~Dotee Dolls are usually about 4-7 inches tall, they have a loop at the top so they can be hung up, and most often have some sort of tail. After that you can make it as unique as you can possibly imagine
I also found that they all started with one very creative lady named Dorothy Christian, and are named after her "Dot". Dorothy of course has her own blogs, http://doteedolls.blogspot.com/
And has also been as kind as to post a How-to on You Tube at http://youtu.be/y_SlCwCYcsU
If you need more inspiration check out the Flickr.com page just for Dotee Dolls at http://www.flickr.com/groups/doteedolls/
!!You HAVE TO complete a Newbie vs Vet Swap already!!
So here is what I'm thinking for requirements
~**!!One finished Doll with a Holiday Season Theme!!**~
*A note and a name for your finished Doll.
*Atleast two different 6in squares of fabric and 4 little embellishments, like buttons, sequins or beads. So they have goodies to make another doll.
Pretty much the same as last time except this one has a Holiday theme. You can get as creative as you want with it, but stick to the Festive feel
OH ALSO PLEASE TRY AND KEEP YOUR DOLL RELIGIOUSLY NEUTRAL ^_^
Were all spread out across the world with different beliefs and creeds. So just keep that in mind while crafting away <3
Sign up until Dec. 1st
Send out by the Dec. 10th
Nikki and Tracy
Pam and Hayley

I'm a newb (have done one small swap and am in process of another with Nikki but would to give this a go)
Woot! Hayley, I'm glad you decided to sign up! These dolls are super easy and fun, you'll love it!
I'm afraid I won't be doing this one, even though I love making Dotee dolls. Life and Christmas crafting are getting in the way at the moment.
oh poop, I realllyyy want to do this one but Christmas crafting, getting a new job and moving in a month are getting in the way for me as well. :/
if i can get the xmas swap finished on time and sent i'll have time to get this one and if my hands are willing to play ball to
will be keeping my eye this post
Just went to soho on my lunch hour and got some fabric and bits and bobs- drawn up my design last night, cant wait! x
I'm going to pass. Have my final due on 14th.Have fun.Love the dottree
I am so excited for christmas that I made my husband help me put up decorations the day after Thanksgiving! lol Now I have twinkling snowflake lights in my living room and a decorated tree too! Next on my list is to buy some fir and balsam smelling candles!
I just deleted my post saying I could do this. I am so sorry! I wish I could, but we have some unexpected bills.
IF there only ends up being three of us,
Would you rather
do a three way swap or
make a doll for each person and send no stash?
I think it would be fun to make two dolls and no stash included in this one
ok ok sign me up need to keep myself busy
