I received from lmcbride!  I love my first ever dotee.


Aren't her wings lovely?!!  The gold and the beads and the color combinations are so pretty.  I'm still working away at mine.  They are kind of taking their own personalities already.  Such fun!

**edited to say: THANKS SO MUCH!!

gingerquilts, I'm so glad you like it!
Since I'm here, I'll go ahead and answer the questions Smiley
The wings are clip art printed onto vellum, and I used a gold leaf pen to outline the wings and paint the face.  The face was made with a push mold made for fimo clay I think.  I used that weird lightweight air dry clay, made by crayola I think.  It's called Model Magic.  The antenna are wire and the hair is this weird plastic raffia-type stuff that I just found in the stash. Smiley

I tried making a couple without arms and wasn't too pleased with how they turned out so I altered things a bit to accomodate arms.

I think the next time I make a "batch" of these I will see if I can do my own artwork for wings and faces.

I received a lovely doll from Linda P. today for my daughter, Riley!  She's 16 months old and fell in love with one of the dolls I made, but since it has beads on it and I am a responsible mom Wink I would never let her actually do more than hold it for a supervised moment. 

So, since I mentioned this in the swap thread, Linda P. said that she had a dotee that was perfect for Riley!  I AM NOT ONE OF HER PARTNERS, but I will of course be sending her one in return (she told me that I didn't have to return the favor, but I have her return address... hee hee hee)!

Anyway, on to pics.

She came wrapped in a little swaddler:


This thing is tiny!  Here it is with a crayon for size reference:


Just kidding... that's a jumbo crayon.  Wink

And two "action" shots!  My daughter LOVES it!  I told her "kiss your dolly" and she called it "doggy"... hehehe... she's too cute.  Smiley  But she DID give it a kiss.  I just couldn't press the button quick enough.





Thank you so much Linda P.!  The doll is adorable!  And it's so perfect for Ri's personality.  She was carrying it around for almost an hour just now.  It's the perfect size for her and it's so toddler-friendly.  You're awesome!  Expect a doll in return.  Wink

Also, the first doll posted was gorgeous!  I have a feeling we're all going to be envying each others' goodies.  Smiley

I provide fair warning.

My dottees are going to look like the giant bastard offspring of the gorgeous little things that are going up in here.

Ha ha ha!  Oh my gosh, I can't wait to see them, kitten wrangler!  Really!  That is so funny.  And I am sure they will be wonderful in their own right, and spice things up.  Cute is great but we need to balance that out you know. Wink  And the ones I made are all pushing the size boundaries, like dottees on growth hormones. Grin

Jenicat that baby picture is too sweet. Smiley
