Details of swap: Welcome to Round 5 of Dotees, Mini Art Dolls. For more information about Dotees, look at the past galleries:

Round 1 - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=250388.0
Round 2 - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=257571.0
Round 3 - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=273862.0
Round 4 - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=295530.0

You can also go to Flickr to look at the Dotee gallery there for more ideas....

For this round, I would like it if each participant is willing to send at least one international package. It only costs a few cents more than a US package and there is no Delivery Confirmation fee, which is 70 - 80 cents for domestic packages. If you send in a small bubble mailer, the cost is almost the same as a US package.

As for the dolls, there are only 2 requirements - they must be 3" - 6" and no larger and they have a loop for hanging. Dotees can be made from any material - even gourds! (See gallery for Round 4). Many dolls are made from fabric and stuffed but you do not have to stick to that formula.

Also, I would ask that the senders DO NOT post photos, unless asked to, by their receiver. The receiver should post photos when s/he has the opportunity. I'm not a stickler about posting once a week. But please try to keep in touch with your organizer and group. Last round the weather played havoc with some of the packages and it is just nice to know every 7 - 9 days  that you are safe and that your packages have been sent and/or received.

If we go to more than 24 particpants, I would love a co-organizer - this is a great way to get some organizing experience under your belt. PM me if you would like the job.

Let's get started!

I think I want to join this one, but I have one quick question- are we just sending to one partner, or will we be making more than one doll and sending to multiple partners? If we're doing just one I'm totally in!

No, you make 3 - 5 dolls and send out to partners....but they are small dolls. You can make them factory style....Think it over.

There are usually groups of 4 (sometimes 5) so you would only have to make 3 dolls (or 4 if you are in a group of 5 as I was last round).  They are small and are easy enough to make so they do not take much time.  Check out the galleries of the previous rounds.  These Dotee swaps are addictive.

I think I am going to sign up. I'm in the FOCR swap which ends may 6th, so I guess that shouldn't go on my list of current swaps. I'm done crafting for it anyway Tongue

Give me a day or two and I'll be in. Dealing with another craft-room flood and no time to think straight. But Dotees are fun, and I'm totally game. I like super-quick swaps... last round it took me longer to stalk my partners then it did to make the dolls... Smiley
