Details of swap:

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

~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! 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:

14  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.

18  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Luna moth, ATC size on: December 27, 2014 01:54:18 PM
I made this for spikefan in the December Ongoing ATC Swap. Her theme was embroidered, and I found a lot of moths on her pinterest while I was looking for inspiration.



The main stitches I used were split stitch, satin stitch, a bit of stem stitch, fly stitch for the antennae, and french knots for the body. I had a lot of fun with this one! I didn't sketch it at all on the fabric, so it was a true free-hand (while looking at a picture).



I love luna moths - I even made a luna moth Halloween costume for myself as a little kid! I haven't seen one in years, but this past summer I found a luna caterpillar while camping in New York. The coloring looked like it was just about to pupate. Very cool.

19  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Satin stitch practice on: December 02, 2014 08:01:42 PM


I've never really worked with satin stitch before, just in little bits in larger pieces. I decided to try one piece that was just satin so I could get comfortable with it.



I think it worked - I've definitely grasped satin stitch! There's still room for improvement on my lines, but I like the way this turned out. I made it to a rosemary sachet which smells delicious. 



Thanks for looking!
20  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Harry Potter... eggplants?! on: September 06, 2014 03:42:24 PM


So I work on an organic vegetable farm, and a few days ago I was out picking specialty eggplants. A few of them had these little growths that made them look like veggie gnomes or something, so I had to take them home with me! Originally I was just going to glue on some googly eyes and take funny pictures for facebook, but I got a bit carried away. The Harry Potter Craftalong has a challenge right now involving eggplants, and I was inspired to turn them into Harry, Hermione, and Ron. I hope you enjoy this little dose of weirdness!



I made Harry a Kale2000 racing broom, and found him a little Hedwig in my bead stash.



I made Hermione a course book (Standard Book of Spells, Grade 2), and found her a Crookshanks from my curio shelf.



And for Ron, I made a broken wand (cat whisker unicorn hair poking out), found him a Scabbers from the curio shelf, and gave him LOTS OF SNACKS.
