Details of swap:

I haven't done one of these swaps in a while so welcome to the Fall Dotee Swap. What is a dotee? A dotee is a mini art doll, meant to be traded or swapped. The dolls are generally smaller than 6" with a face, but do not usually have arms or legs (unless that's part of your design). Dotees have a loop for hanging, some come with tails (tails are fibers, ribbon, charms or other string-y things that add to the theme of the doll), and can be made from a variety of materials - fabric, felt, canvas, denim, gourds or any other material/media that you can make a doll from. Most dotee makers add buttons, beads, sequins, embroidery, or charms to embellish the doll. Search Google and Pinterest for dotees and tutorials.

In this swap, you will be in a group of 2 - 4 swappers and you will craft them ONE doll from their list of themes.
Please keep in mind that when you list your themes, choose broad ideas - not everyone will be able to craft the Tenth Doctor, if they aren't a Dr. Who fan. Some examples are Halloween, orange, or cute monsters. Please send only one doll - not everyone will be able to make two or send extras so it's best to discuss, via PM, what you want to send, if it's more than the one doll.

ooh I've never done a dotee, but I have made little felted creatures and this looks fun to try.  I especially like the resolution dotes with a message.  Doing my questionnaire now!

Loving the themes so far - wish I could swap with all of you.
Of course, if no one else joins, my wish might come true!

I just realized I haven't done my questionnaire yet - oops!

This sounds tempting.  I have never made a Dotee before but I received on a long time ago in a swap....
