I just had to have a quick paper doll fix before Christmas and hoping some of you will join me.
These are for the fully clothed paperdolls and the clothes are not removeable.
Can be printed or hand drawn or any other way you can find to make them on nice thick cardstock weight paper.

Hi all,
This is a fairly quick ( compared to most swaps) small swap. We will be making 1 character paper doll with at least 5 moveable joints ie- head, arms and legs. Feel free to do more if you wish like waist elbows, hands, feet etc.
-Characters ideas - Disney, Christmas, movie stars, book characters, manga/anime characters, game characters etc etc.
-The paper doll must be made from sturdy thick cardstock weight paper and maybe printed OR hand drawn and colored image.
- Doll must be assembled using tiny brads or similar, for the joints.
- Doll must be sized between 5 and 7 inches.
- You will have 1 partner who will list upto 5 different characters they would like to receive, in which you will make 1 paper doll.
- You will have just over 2 weeks to make your paper doll.

This is a nice swap for this time of year as they can be easily posted in an envelope which saves a lot on postage costs!

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Anyone into Manga! on: November 11, 2014 05:50:05 PM
Hi, just wondering if anyone here likes to draw, trace, color Manga? I was thinking of a Manga paper doll swap.
Putting the feelers out.....
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Monthly theme Dotee doll swap starts JAN 2015 on: November 08, 2014 10:41:03 PM
Hi all,
Some of the other members and I have been talking about having a regular Dotee doll swap once a month! with each month having a different theme.
So far 3 of us are interested, just wondering if anyone else would be.
The plan is that each time you would have about 12 days to make your small Dotee and you would only sign up to the monthly swap that you are interested in. That way if you don't like one months theme or are sick, or holidaying, there is no obligation to sign up for that month.
Theme ideas I have come up with so far are
1. Eat your greens - Fruit and vegetable dotee's
2. Night sky - stars or moon
3. A pigeon pair - a pair of dotee's, man and wife, cat and dog, peas and carrots, Romeo and Juliet, mouse and cheese etc etc
4. Steampunk
5. Partners choice
6. Alice in wonderland

I would love to hear other ideas for themes......
How does the list sound so far?

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Monster travel companion on: November 06, 2014 02:30:53 PM
Hi all,
Yes another idea... My head is so full it hurts Cheesy
I really really love this idea.
A miniature monster friend inside a tin.. Hmm let me explain further
For Your partner you would craft a little monster friend, and inside the tin you would put a map of where he is from and a short bio on his likes dislikes
Add accessories as you wish, like a mini camera, glasses, binoculars, a suitcase, a leaf, a bug anything smaller enough to fit inside your tin. Also he/she must be made from faux fur! But design is upto you. ammending this to, monster can be made from any materials you like. You will have an opportunity to list what sort of monster you like in your questionaire example : clay, crochet, fabric, leather, knitted, embroidered softie etc etc
Image was found at www.mmmcrafts.blogspot.com.au
And if you need the pattern she has a link to her etsy pattern if you wish to use it.
I'm thinking early January for this!
I hope we have a few get on board because I think it's a really cute idea.



8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Any Character Cushion/pillow cover on: November 04, 2014 09:26:51 PM
Hi all,


Recently in the movies and tv show swap, I recieved a fantastic cushion cover of Shaun's shirt from Shaun of the Dead and I love it! Since then I have really wanted some more throw cushions like these.
So.. My swap idea is to make a cushion/ pillow cover that is character based.
We will send without the cushion insert, to keep postage low. Size will be negotiable but a nice lounge/ sofa/ chair size.
Characters could be Alice ( as pictured- I borrowed this image from google, sorry I don't know who's it is) Star Wars, LOTR, Disney, batman, edward gorey, frozen, anime characters, game characters, walking dead, sherlock, etc, etc
You will list some of your fav characters. A great way to make the pillow covers are with felt as in the pic or other fabrics can be used as well.
There are many tutorials on google how to make an envelope style back, to insert the cushion.
Anyone interested?
We will make this next year!

This is a small swap of 1 Dotee doll with a Christmas theme. I thought it would be nice to receive one for Christmas to hang on your tree!
Ideas are angels, Santa, elf, reindeer, snowman....etc
Regular Dotee rules apply such as a hanger and let's keep the size no bigger than 4 inches, so they can hang nicely on the tree if so wished.
We are running out of time till Christmas so if I get just a few people interested here then I will put this up for sign ups within the week, as most international shipping takes 3 weeks.
So come on people what do you say. Got time for a pretty little christmas Dotee? most of these can be made within a day of happy crafting......
