Details of swap:Dotees - Mini Art Dolls - Round 6

Here we go again - more Dotees.

For those of you who have made them, here is another opportunity to be creative. For those of you who have not made a dotee, the rules are simple. Each doll must be 4" to 6" tall, each one has a face and a loop for hanging. You can use fabric, yarn, paper, clay, canvas - anything to make the face and body. Some past participants have used buttons, rubber stamps, plastic clay, embroidery and beads to make faces. Bodies can be round, square, traingular, teardrop-shaped - ANYTHING!

Each participant agrees to use Delivery Confirmation tags (in the USA) or keeps a copy of international/Customs receipts. I will try to limit the international makers to one per group. (Let me know if you ABSOLUTELY do not want to send out of the country.)

Here are the links to the past galleries:

Oh goodness! I really really hope I get to join this one... I've got so many neat ideas!

We're going on vacation for a week and a half in July and then we're supposed to be closing on our first home on Aug 21st... just need to decide if I am willing to put off packing and whatnot.

I think I put too many tiny details into the last ones that didn't really translate well after it was all sewn together. Maybe if I make these a bit more simple but put more thought into the actual structure of the dotee instead of painting and hand sewing (which all my last ones were...) then I could make time.

fingers crossed!

You're right, Mel, simple is best. However I loved yours in the last round so do what makes you happy. When I did the Picasso-inspired dotees in Round 4, I had tried them earlier. I cut out about 20 small felt pieces and attempted to make the faces all crooked-y and arty and they just looked messy. Finally I hit upon the idea of just taking a few elements and adding the shrink plastic eyes and it all came together.

And I bought a bunch of old "ARTNews" magazines at a garage sale - I'm thinking Miro, Leger, Botero....oh, no! I'm getting HUGE ideas for this round....

I'm thinking about this one.

I was going to take a swap break after the ones I'm in are done, but I've really wanted to do one these too. hmmm....
