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   

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 and two galleries here:

Seems that Dot took down her tutorial Sad, but I understand her reasoning behind it. If you are not sure how to make a dotee please see previous rounds for examples. There is also a youtube video that has an tutorial... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_SlCwCYcsU the only requirement is size as I stated in the description, the rest is up to you! Smiley

Thanks!
