I say this almost every swap - but we love the differently made and conceived dotees. It's what makes this swap fun and interesting. It's fun for the maker to try new methods, materials and ideas and it's fun for the receiver to get something that, as Spiffy said, falls into the dotee parameters and pushes out the straight lines, just a bit.

In the discussion thread, it says they should be 3 - 6" in length, a loop for hanging, and generally they have a face. But if you look at mine - I don't always do faces. And over my desk, I have dotees made from crochet, a light bulb, a small gourd, twigs, beads and lots of other crazy stuff.

So chill out and just enjoy. Peace out, brussels sprout!

Wow - I love those new dotees up there ^

The DOD and the Monster are really cool!  And fabric too - how generous and nice!

And grasshopper, this is your first?!!  You created a great dotee - I think you think like me - I love ribbon on anything!!   

Everyone has done a great job on this round of dotees, and since I got my feet wet on this kind of swap, I will be taking part in other dotee swaps!  Really had fun with this one!

 Cool

I received two great dotees and they sent sweet goodies!

Jellyfish!!! <--- from bacettox


and she sent me some sweets! The little pixel candies tasted like starbursts but in mini form I wish we could get them here. Thanks! My little one loves jellyfish!

Dia de los Muertos <--- from spiffnik

I love this little dotee.  Check out all the sweets!  I've given the pecan caramel bar to my dad and I've shared the others with everyone else. 

Here are just the dotees (sorry I forgot to switch the pic over)


Thanks for all the goodies they are/were great!
