The requirements for a dotee doll usually include a loop for hanging, a face and a tail. I do not use tails myself each time but there are some makers who must add one - you know who you are. The dolls can be animals, people, creatures, critters, famous or infamous. I think the best part is to collect an eclectic assortment of unusual little dolls that most of us display on the wall for constant viewing.

You can choose a USA-only group or an international one. The groups are usually 3 or 4 people and you make one doll for each partner in the group. It is recommended (by me) that you make one for yourself to keep as well.

YOU MUST send the doll in a bubble mailer (or another sturdy type of envelope or box) and YOU MUST get a DC# which costs an additional 70 cents. The second MUST is a Craftster rewuirement for all swaps.

So let's begin!

In honor of audio-astrophysics, alwaysinmyroom and Destined to Fail, I am going to scour my over-stuffed apartment to see what I can use, instead of fabric to make dolls this round. I try to spend money only on the postage and bubble envelopes and use what I have to craft. So a beaded, paint brush holding a playing card? Sound good everyone? Hee hee....

Sounds like an allegory on life to me. Sometimes crafting is a lot like a poker game... you know how things are suppose to work, but you never know what hand you'll be dealt. lol. Sometimes things just fall apart and you loose all your money mailing to Europe.
