Hello everyone!  It is super intimidating posting on this board - everyone is super talented!  Anyway I'm currently traveling and I wanted something to do that required little supplies.  I've never encountered dotees before Craftster so I thought I'd give it a try.  I'm not sure if these are kosher exactly but whatevs.  My first was such a great, quick little project I've made one everyday since!

The group shot:


The first was all hand beading and I just made up the design as I went along. It was also my first foray into beading so it was a learning experience.

The back:


The second I made for my mom.  She bought a new bra that day and had boobs on the brain.  It reminds me of a Miami Virgin Mary.  Shes made from scrap fabric and beads.


The third is strangely powerful!  I started making him the day before the big storm hit the midwest/south... never know.  I got the inspiration for his face from Hopi Kachina dolls.  He's made out of a ton of sequins (obviously) and beads.  And patience.


To balance the guy above I made his opposite, the lovely lady below.



Thanks for looking!

They are all so exciting and unique! I think the Virgin Mary is my favorite.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Wow! These are amazing! I cant even pick a favorite. I dont know if youve seen the dotee swaps over on the swap boards, but they are lots of fun if you are interested. Smiley Cant wait to see more!

Thank you everyone for the compliments!  And I'm doing my first swap (Random Acts of Kindness) but I have been eyeing the dotee ones!  The dotee, ATC, and inchie gallery is one of my favs to browse

Your dotees are great - I like the dark bead and sequin guy the best, but I like Miami Mary too!  These are really unique.  I like you, have been checking out the dotee swap stuff - I think you qualify as an artist there!

I can understand being intimidated to post on the boards (I'm a long time lurker hehe) but I have to say - thank you for posting! These dolls are just delectable. I can't pick a favourite either - they're all wonderful, beautifully made and just fabulous!
