Welcome back, everyone. Let's make some dotees to kick off the mad rush of the holidays. This is a simple, fast-ish swap where you make 1 small dotee doll for each of your partners.  You read your partners' questionnaire and make a doll based on one of their themes. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Remember, for this swap, communication is key, checking in with all of us is essential, and taking photos BEFORE you send is important. We haven't lost any in the mail, that I can remember, but it is a quick insurance policy in the event that one does go missing.

And PLEASE use a small bubble envelope to send your dolls - you can usually find 4-for-a-dollar at your local dollar store or big chain store. This ensures that you dotees arrive safely to their destination. And folks sending within the USA MUST get a Delivery Confirmation for an additional 85-cents - this is Craftster swapping policy.
For sending outside of the USA, you must keep your post office receipts for documentation of sending. The cost of this swap is fairly low - about $3 - $4 for each package. You can generally use materials from your stash.

And dotees can be made from felt, fabric, paper, natural materials, unusual materials, found objects, stuff you found in the back of your closet - be creative! The only things to keep in mind is that each doll is about 3" to 5" tall, not including the loop for hanging or the tail, if you include one. Most dolls have a face but even that is open to interpretation.

The main rule of thumb is to have fun with these. The recipients ALWAYS enjoy the receiving. We usually have groups of three or four swappers so you will make 2 or 3 dolls in total.

I started this swap a week ago and had no takers until Tuesday or so. I was worried that I would either have to cancel, or that Kookaloo and I would be swapping alone!

I'm glad to see some new faces here. These are fun little dolls to make. Some folks in past swaps have used them as ornaments. Mine hang on hat racks over my desk. I can look at them and remember the different things folks used to make them.

So welcome to all.
