wow! how long did you have to stand there to get that little guy to eat right out of your hand?? fantastic!

Something like 10 minutes I think! Their feeder was empty, so they were willing to chance my hand. Tongue It's also right next to my car, so they are used to seeing me near it. Standing with my body against the tree helped too. It's very fun to do, and I try it every couple weeks before I refill the feeder. Smiley

Well, the last international package I sent was to Germany - it weighed 4 oz and cost $9.45 to send. I hope that helps you somewhat! Small things are usually under $10 in my experience.

I'll sign up soon! This is a great swap for when you're not sure what your schedule will be like, because you can do a little or a lot.

Wow the solar system is so cool! What a great idea.

Amazing details on the swan, hannabear. And very subtle with the crystal stars!

emilywilde I just love the hair explosion that's happening on your dotee, it's so pretty! And the tiny space helmet is too cute.

I love little Spock so much, I might just list him in my questionnaire for April.

blu your double-sided dotee is brilliant! And I'm even more impressed after you told me about how you got the lace to be different colors on either side.

April round is up and running! Come and see what the new theme is: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438722.0

In this swap you will make your partner one Dotee doll in the theme of...


Are you a big fan of a certain TV show, book, movie, or game? This month we will make dotees to celebrate that love! They can be characters, objects, or any other representation of your chosen fandom. Just remember that if you're making a USS Enterprise dotee, it should have a face of some kind! We're all about anthropomorphism.

This is a monthly swap, but you do NOT have to join in each month's round! Feel free to only join in for themes you love, or to pass on months when you have no spare time.

Discus future themes and get updates for the next months here.

What is a dotee?

A dotee is a mini art doll, meant to be traded or swapped. The dolls 6" tall or smaller, but the hanger or tail can exceed that measurement. They have a face, but do not require arms or legs (unless that's part of your design). Dotees have a loop for hanging, and some come with tails (tails are fibers, ribbon, charms or other string-y things that add to the theme of the doll), and can be made from a variety of materials - fabric, felt, paperclay, yarn, beads, gourds or any other material/media that you can make a doll from. Most dotee makers add buttons, beads, sequins, embroidery, or charms to embellish the doll.

Check out the galleries from previous dotee swaps to get some ideas:
