~History and Myth~

This month we will be inspired by our partners' favorite historical figures, time periods, and myths. Do you love the style of Victorian England? 19th century pirate queen Ching Shih? Anansi the trickster? Your dotees can reflect specific people/characters, or more general events, times, and legends. Do some research and have fun!

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.

Shipping: For shipping within the USA - please get a tracking number for your package. Non-US packages - please save your receipt as proof of sending. When you send AND receive, please remember to PM your partner and the organizer, Acadian Driftwood. Posting in the swap thread is not enough!

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.

Shipping: When you send, please pm your partner and our co-organizer blupaisan. She will be in charge of the gallery and of marking everyone's sent status. I will be away July 24 - August 5th, so only pm-ing me won't do you any good!
Please also remember to message blupaisan and your partner when you receive your dotee. Thanks y'all!

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.

13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Simple fabric flower hairpins - Tutorial on: May 30, 2015 06:52:36 PM


After my grandmother died, my mom asked if I could make a little something to give to everyone at the memorial service. She gave me my grandmother's favorite shirt to work with, so friends and family could take home something that was special to her. I looked around online for an easy fabric flower, but they were all too complicated for amount I wanted to make. I made up my own very basic pattern, inspired by the remembrance poppies you see in the UK.

Materials:
Fabric
Buttons
Bobby pins
Scissors
Needle and thread
Glue (I used Sobo craft & fabric)



First cut out your fabric circles - they don't have to be perfect, so no need to trace them beforehand. Mine were around 2 inches, but they can be bigger or smaller depending on the finished size you want.

To assemble, tie a strong knot at the end of your thread, and use a running stitch to make a circle in your fabric. The smaller this inner circle is, the fewer folds you will have in your finished flower. For this example, I used contrasting thread so you could see the stitches - for my real flowers, I matched the thread color to the fabric.



Pull the thread tight and make sure all of the fabric in the inner circle you made is on one side. Knot the thread, but don't cut it yet!



Now you can fiddle with the folds to control how the "petals" will look. Even out the bunching if you like.



Now sew on a button, using that same thread that you did not cut off!



Try to flatten the little pouch of fabric on the back as you do this - it will make a nice base for gluing the bobby pin. This time after your final knot, you can cut the thread.



I waited until I had made a bunch of these flowers before I glued the bobby pins on - a good dab of Sobo craft & fabric glue held on to both materials very strongly.



It also dries totally clear!



Here's an example of a flower made from quilting cotton, instead of textured apparel fabric:



I ended up making 80 of them, and probably should have made more! It made me happy that everyone at the service wore them and thought they were special.



Thanks for reading!

~Fandom~

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!

17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Blue-footed booby dotee on: February 05, 2015 02:08:00 PM
I was so pleased to see blue-footed booby on my partners questionnaire for the January MDS! They are just so neat and goofy, and they just make me smile.



I made up the pattern by looking at a stuffed animal booby I have, and a few google image searches.



Shiny hairdo!



Dangly feet and knobbly legs!



The face and beak is one piece of felt folded underneath and stitched up the top.



I love that face.

What is a dotee? (by Smmarrt)

A dotee is a mini art doll, meant to be traded or swapped. The dolls are generally smaller than 6" with a face, but do not usually have arms or legs (unless that's part of your design). Dotees have a loop for hanging, 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, canvas, denim, 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.
