Christmas Dotee Swap! YAY! ^__^
Dotee Dolls are usually about 3-7 inches tall, they have a loop at the top so they can be hung up (in this case- on the christmas tree!), and they usually have a beaded tail.
If you’ve not heard of Dotees before, here are some good resources to find out more information and for inspiration too!

I haven't done a swap in SO long! I remember when Pam first introduced these.. Such a cute different thing to do. I think I'm going to do this but I don't want to sign up for something and not have time for it, so I'm going to try and start on one and if I manage to do that then I should surely be able to finish on time!
i would but my sewing machine broke this last year and i havnt been able to do any fabric crafts
@Sally- Good plan, its always really stressfull when you've gotten over excited and signed up for too many swaps!
@Gnomes- Dotees are nearly always hand sewn items- and the great thing about them is that they dont have to be perfect AT ALL, they are totally beginner friendly! So I hope you reconsider
That would be my comment to Gnomes as well.If you can break a sewing machine you can hand sew a dottee.
I'll sign up for the swap as well.
@Gnomes - I don't even know how to use a sewing machine - so mine has been hand done.
1 more day left to sign up!
