(Miss Eggplant Dotee, made by Smmarrt)

Details of swap: Dotees are small dolls that are 4" - 6" in size and have a loop for hanging. These dolls can be made of any material - fabric, wire, clay, felt, beads and any combination of the aforementioned. The only requirements for these dolls is the size, the loop and a face. Please visit the other galleries to see what other swappers have made in the past. If this is your first time, keep it simple. If this is your third or fourth or seventh swap, challenge yourself to make something new and with a different material.

I try to make groups of four so you make and send three. I also group according to your preference of US-only or international okay. In the case of more than one international swapper, I attempt to put one international person in each group that can send. That does discriminate against the international person, though - they have to send 3 to USA. Anyway, it has worked out in the past. In the event of an odd number of swappers, there may be a group of 3 only or I would email and ask if you and your group would be willing to be in a group of 5.

This is my fourth (?) time organizing and what I have learned that while I don't expect everyone to post comments daily, I would like to encourage each member to post weekly to let us know that you are still active. And if something comes up, and life does have a way of interfering with your crafting and posting, just let me know. I don't bite and I am pretty understanding about most things. Late is one thing, disappearing quite another. Join if you are sure you have the time or can make the time. Please do not join if you think your schedule for September and October will prevent you from enjoying and participating in this swap. Thanks!

I will be checking profiles before accepting you into the swap. This is a relatively easy swap but we have been plagued with flakers in the past so I want to know that you are up to the job.

Just the other day, I was admiring the past dotee galleries and hoping there would be another one of these that I could jump on to! Awesome!!!

After drooling over dotee galleries, I am finally getting in on a dotee swap!  I've been trying hard to reign myself in on swapping due to finances, but I promised myself this one!  Cheesy

Filling out questionnaire now!

Whoops - sorry. The groups are usually 4 swappers so you make and send 3. Once in a while, there is an odd number so in that case, and after I have grouped US-only and one-international-send-okay, I may ask one group if they would mind adding one more swapper to that group.

So to be clear, you are placed in a US-only group of three or in a "one-international- send-okay" group of three.

Thanks for asking....I'll fix the first post.

I already have some ideas again. Although last time my dotees came out completely different than I was imagining. At least this time I'll try to make them a more correct size.
