This was one of three that I made for the Dotee Swap #13, gallery here:

I've never made a Dotee before. I usually make Poppets and have made a few Cupcakes, so the hardest parts for me was going small, and simplifying. I kept wanting to make something more 3D vs. 2D, with multiple parts. Tongue


She is made of felt. The green section is machine sewn and the brown section is hand stitched with silk hand-spun thread, in blanket stitch. There are glass beads and sequins sewn on the top, with a green ribbon hanger and more beads for a tail. My partners fav. colors were red, black, white & shades of green. Her face was done first in pencil, colored in with prismacolor pencils, then the black lines put back in with a black ultra-thin Sharpie.

Here is what she looked like before adding the wool "hair", where you can see her face a little better.


Thanks for looking!
