I'd love a pattern.
The way you edited your pictures is very cute, lets you show the product in action without showing too much  Wink

Try increasing the olive oil. I actually put 10-20mL worth of straight olive oil with a few drops of EO added on each leg after I shower. I leave it on while I do my hair and makeup stuff, then rub the legs lightly with a towel. The oil often entirely soaks in.
It's the only thing that will keep my legs from looking and feeling like tree bark a few months a year.
The bonus to using an oil is that they will act a bit like a moisture barrier against the chlorine.

I think it's definitely a cowl-neck like Eliea posted... probably the neckline was too flimsy to hold her mic so they clipped the mic to her shirt and bra-strap. That's what it looks like.
To duplicate the asymetrical neck, just gather a bit and pleat it similarly and stitch it. I think it would also be a cute spot to sew on an accessory like a neat button or a farbric flower made of the part trimmed from the shirt.

Haha!
I think green dragonfly should try to tie your swap items together with yarn (in a non destructive temp. way) and make them into a owlasaur to take a picture for us!

Now...I didn't find shipping too bad at all. Only cost about $2 CND to ship from Canada to the States.  And they got to there places quite quickly.

How did you pack your dotees, what size and type of envelope did you use?

With unstuffed dotees- they could be moderately embellished as long as there is no huge hair or large beads. I think the thickness would have to be under 1cm for the package (1/3 inch or so) Maybe the sender could include a couple feet of the thread they use to make the dotee as well to sew up the gap.

Or.. just a thought... we could send dotees unstuffed in a regular legal size envelope and include a question on the form "Would you mind stuffing the dotee you receive yourself?" for people outside the US.
I know I wouldn't mind, personally.
They could likely be shipped for regular letter costs that way.

I finished up my swap items last night... the final item sure did a number on my hands. My fingers are pretty stiff today... and I spend a good 6 hours a day working on excel spreadsheets  Tongue
I just need to pack things up and write a note Smiley
I wanted to keep every single thing I made... I hope crescentfresh likes them.
It's good to be done.

I would love to participate in another dotee swap... but unfortunately the shipping for each little doll from canada to the US was $5.30.. and I can't afford to pay that x4 or x5... times are tough right know and all. That was for the cheapest shipping option.
Anyone Canadian have any tips for shiping cheaper? I suppose the dotees could be shipped just in a legal envelope... I put mine in a sheet of tissue and in a small bubble mailer. Im not sure if that would save much though.

I received from Pogo today... my last Dotee. Aww Sad

Pogo made me this creepy zombie lady in a pink leopard print straightjacket! She's so cute.



Thanks Pogo!

Here's a group shot of the dotees I received this round:



And these are the ones I sent!


 
Great swap guys, it was fun!
