Details of swap:

Dotee Dolls are the mini art dolls made by doll artist Dot Christian.  She's been kind enough to offer a Dotee Doll tutorial on her blog here: http://dotslifeandart.blogspot.com/2007/02/art-doll-tutorial.html which is a really great jumping off point for making all kinds of mini art dolls.  I was really excited about making these little dolls, but didn't have anything to do with them.  I would much rather swap my dolls for dolls that other people have made, and maybe you feel the same way.  If so, this swap is for you!

This will be a round-robin style swap.  Depending on the number of signups, we'll break into groups of 6 or so.  You'll craft a doll for each member of your group, and your fellow group members will do the same.  Everyone will end up making and receiving about 5 dolls (possibly 4 or 6 depending on group size) so that we all end the swap with a lovely collection of one another's work.  Because the dolls are so small and generally light, shipping should be quite affordable, even though you'll be sending several packages.

There are very few rules about these dolls, but:

-Dolls should be no more than 5" in height
-Dolls should have a hanging loop for display
-Dolls should be individual and express your own style and personality  Grin

The last round was amazing!  If you want to get a feel for the variety and potential with these dolls, I highly suggest browsing the round one gallery here:

I don't think any of us had made dotees before last time.  The basic structure is super simple, and then you can embellish them with any kind of craft you're comfortable with.  Join usss!

They are such fun to make - each one develops its own personality!

I have so many ideas for different styles of dotees for this round.

I am SO in!  This is going to be awesome.  I have already bought tons of fat 1/8s for this round. 

SO EXCITED!!!

I loved the last round and will DEFINITELY be signed up for every round we do!

I am so excited to see new people interested, too.  You guys (gals) are going to have so much fun making them; don't worry if you've made 'em before or not... I never had, but this was the perfect opportunity, and everyone made such awesome and unique dolls. 

I mean, every single doll in the gallery was so perfect.  They take on their own personalities.  It'll be a total breeze.  Smiley
