... This will be primarily a clothes swap for our Blythes, Pullips and Dals. Your package must include 3 items. You package can contain clothes, furniture, accessories, or any other item that your partner might want or need. If you and your partners want to make more then 3 items for each other, that is fine, but make sure you discuss it with each other first!

Make sure you let me know if you have a Blythe, Pullip, and/or Dal. I will NOT match a Blythe person with a Pullip person or Dal person! Partners will own the same type dolls. And you must own a Blythe, Pullip or Dal to participate.

Please don't start crafting until you are assigned your partner and please make sure to read their questionnaire and craft for them as best as you can.

Send 3 items. At least 2 must be crafted.
pm GatorWrangler and your partner your delivery confirmation number when you send
pm GatorWrangler and your partner when you receive
post picture of the items you get in the gallery

I think it is a fun idea to post pictures of your dolls with their names in this thread. You do not have to wait to know who your partner is to do this but DO NOT do this until you have sent me your questionnaire.

I have been looking at this swap for days and really really want to do this one. I have only had my GiGi since March and she only has one outfit and no home, no anything.  I'm a bad mom.  I'll try to get my info sent tomorrow.

Everyone has such gorgeous girls!

sheriffkarli is your Pullip with the long purple hair an Arietta?

Im Sew Silly, I've been collecting for just over a year and I got most of my Pullips from pullipstyle.com and a few from thevalleyofthedolls.com. I don't even have pictures of my two newest Pullips or my second Dal and my camera batteries kind of suck, so they are charging now. I hope to get a picture posted later.

Ah I love the dollies!
Thanks for the info quaisior!

I have been looking online and trying to decide what to save up for....or at least narrow it down cause they are all so darned cute!

My kiddo says she likes the ones with colored hair...like the pink one of sherrifkarli's as well as the ones with purple and blue/teal hair...hehe. ( i do too!)

Sherrifkarli~ do you find your pretty pink headed one's hair difficult to manage? It looks soooo soft!

Thanks all for helping me to find out where and how to decide! :) maybe i will actually have one by the next round!

Awww, everyone's girls are so cute! I can't wait to find out partners. :) Oh, and I need to post some pictures of my girls at some point. I'm bad about pictures sometimes (don't worry, i won't be bad when it comes to pictures of swap packages!). I just didn't know which of my dolls needed clothes the most. I listed almost all of them in my questionaire b/c I couldn't decide. I have a lot of neglected dolls! I need to get sewing for them. Anyways, very excited for this swap!!!

I got a couple pictures yesterday, but I only had time to take pictures of two of my girls.

Here's Zee, my Zuora Pullip (she's showing off her new kimono - handmade, but unfortunately not by me)



And here's Conifer Jane, my Enchanted Petal Blythe. She's a super hero, but so far she's only got the secret identity clothes. :)



I couldn't decide who needed clothes and stuffs the most, so my questionaire lists a lot more dolls than this, but I figure this is at least a start for piccies.

Here's a picture of all five of my Pullips (my Withered, Rowan, is in the picture too even though I didn't include her in my questionnaire, since she's a type 1 and I don't know how many other people here would also have a type 1).


From left to right: Raven, Rowan, Kirsty, Alia, and Violeta

I also have two Dals, two Taeyangs, and four (five, including my spouse's Aggonya) Little Pullips, but since they aren't in my questionnaire either, I didn't have any pics of them.

She's rida with different hair and eyechips

I just signed up, so I hope I'm not jumping the gun by posting this now.

Here's my Moira Bea:


She's rocking the first dress I ever made her.  It's a scrap of silk I got in a grab-bag at an estate sale, and I had to hand-roll the hems.  Blech.  However, I was really excited when I found super tiny real flowers and a super tiny real pine tree in the back yard to photograph her with. :D

Okay, finally I took time to have a little photo session with my girl, Anya. She's my one and only, and I love her dearly but I haven't gotten to do much with her or make much for her yet, so this swap is giving me a great chance to start making things.



I can't wait to get my partner!

My partner has at least 7 dolls and I think it's hilarious that I'm stalking dolls. I wrote their names in a notebook, wrote down their personalities and likes/dislikes. Now I have a list of things to make per doll. I'm just having so much fun!

Don't be embarrassed! You probably got the best partner (me!) for having so many dolls. I'm a housewife with a husband that likes to cook and clean, meaning= I don't do anything. I've got the time and resources to make something for all of them! I'm so excited about it!!!!!!

I finished one thing yesterday. It is so awesome. I think you're going to LOVE it!

Last night my girl got sand-matted and new crimson lips.  Although I'll be repainting them when I get the extender I need to make it look more professional.  I had to paint even though I didn't have everything yet, just because she looked weird without.  I love the way I painted them, and just need to get the extender to level out the brush strokes.  I'll also be re-rooting her with mohair as soon as I get brave enough to scalp her.  I do need to decide what to do for her eyes though.  She lost her eye makeup in the matting process, and I don't airbrush, but I'd rather have something more permanent than chalk pastels.

I've got 2 things finished!  Yay! They turned out really well!  I'm really enjoying making the items.  However, I almost finished a third and it just didn't work out...So, starting from scratch again. I'm not used to working with such small patterns...One pattern has me hemming a microscopic area, gathering, then adding lace.  LOL! I totally lost it.  You should have seen the look on my family's face when I threw a tantrum.  Does anyone have any tips for the micro stuff?  Are you supposed to hand sew?  If so, I'll definately try it.

Woo hoo! I can hardly wait for send outs on this! I am already maybe about half done. And this upcoming weekend I don't have much planned so I may possibly be sending early. Not sure. Can't put it off until the last minute as I'm out of town the weekend before send outs. So. Much. Fun.

Im Sew Silly, I've been collecting for just over a year and I got most of my Pullips from pullipstyle.com and a few from thevalleyofthedolls.com.


Thanks!
I have alllllmost saved enough of a stash to get my first pullip, 'brand new purezza'!
its good to know of some places others have had good experiences ordering from online.

Say, those of you who have used pullipstyle, how was their shipping if you remember? like was it expensive? just trying to figure out how much more i need to save for it! lol (i am super excited can ya tell?)

hopefully later on, i will get to join you all with my purezza,....and if the name fits her when she finally arrives, she already has a name haha! it will be revealed later on once she arrives... ;)
thanks yall for all the pullip help and info! :)

IIRC, shipping was about $10 from pullipstyle. They are in the US, so it's not as bad as if you're buying from overseas. Um, unless you're NOT in the US. :P

Another great thing about Pullip Style is that their shipping is really fast. I live several states away from them and I've always gotten my dolls within two days of them shipping. I'm excited for you, Im Sew Silly.

thanks so much everyone for the helpful info! I am excited that i am getting a tad closer to getting my pullip as well :) If i sell a few more of my crafts at the local store, then i will have enough to get her~ so yay!
I have to admit though, i am so anxious to start sewing her some duds...but dont know what size to go by measurement wise...i have a barbie that belongs to my kiddo, but dont know if her waist and barbies are the same or not, nor the leg length.

ah patience is a vertue i havent mastered quiet yet haha

thanks & hope its been okay that i have asked questions but you all seemed to be the perfect bunch to ask! and so helpful too!

If it's the new "bellybutton" Barbie, the clothes might fit Pullip too.

humm, belly button barbie....i dont guess i ever noticed if she had one or not! haha
this is a ballerina barbie..so her outift is kinda painted on her and her tutu is seperate...so i cant see a belly button on her.  lol, i guess i will wait on the clothes for now.
if you all arent too busy, and have some space, wish you all were up for joining in the swap i am in for the dollhouse/doll's space stuff cause i bet yall are full of awsome ideas for that too!  :D
so far there are only 3 of us in it surprisingly enough. :-\

i will be watching the gallery for this one like a hawk! I cant wait to see what you all come up with  ;D

thanks again! :-*

Im Sew Silly, sorry about that, I'm a Barbie collector too and I sometimes forget that other people don't know the collectors' terminology. The newer Barbie body without the twist waist with smaller breasts is called the bellybutton Barbie body by collectors. The old Barbie clothes don't fit Pullips, but newer Barbie and My Scene clothes fit Pullips pretty well. I haven't been able to find many sewing patterns for the new Barbies though.

Congrats on ordering your first Pullip.


I'm working steadily along on my swap stuff and I'm finding that the stuff that's supposed to be easy is giving me fits and the stuff that I've heard is difficult (like stretchy materials) is actually pretty easy for me. I've always known I was a bit odd, but I didn't realize my sewing experiences would be completely opposite from the norm. :-P

Getting close to being done with all of the stuff I'm making. Had another great sewing day on Friday. :)  Just a few more pieces to make and then the never ending snaps (not sure why I save those up to do all of them at once, but I do).

I'm finally back from vacation!  Phew!  I took a project with me and finished it while on the road, and I have one or two more things I want to get done before I send, but I'm well on my way to being done!

I'm almost done too!  It's a good thing my partner has different color taste for her Pullip! I keep wanting to keep the things I make... But pink doesn't go with my Pullip's dark purple hair... :D

Ack! Only about half done here. I've got some crafting to get to!

My hubby has a pinched nerve and no amount of shoulder massages have helped. He's off the the chiropracter tomorrow.

One more set of fasteners to attach and then I'm finished! Then pictures and packing. If I get time tonight, I may be able to send tomorrow. Or it might be Friday. And, the bonus is that I am only one state away from my swap partner, so we should both get things really fast! YAY!

I shipped everything out today! I hope my partner likes it all. It was quite fun to make. And I know there's a few items she's going to LOVE! (There's also a few I'm less sure about...EEEP!) But it's out of my hands now. And the waiting begins.

Today is the sendout date, so I need everyone to pm me today and let me know your status.  McBec27 and FREYA369 don't need to, because they already sent.

I received a completely awesome package!!!! I've been gone all weekend so I'm too exhausted to take pics tonight but I definitely will tomorrow. Unfortunately I also have to send late since I wasn't expecting to be gone all weekend. (I usually don't leave the house)

Yay! I'm super happy that Dreambelle received and liked her package. And don't worry, I don't mind waiting a few extra days. Although, I AM super excited to see what I get! Hope whatever called you away for the weekend was something fun and good or that it is all ok now, whatever it was!

Wow! These dolls are gorgeous everyone! I've never heard of Blythe or Pullip dolls until now and did a quick search... they're soo expensive!!! I was wondering if anyone knows of a site that sells just the doll parts so that I may see if I can afford one that I customize completely myself? I want one so badly now! ^_^

You can usually get nude, bald dolls on Ebay and there are some selling sites like http://dollymarket.net/ http://pullip.pinky-street.com/index.php and http://www.shopadollic.com/index.php but you have to be a member of the forums for a little while and have so many posts before you can join the buy, sell, trade part of the forums. I'm not sure how the http://thisisblythe.com/ forum works for buy, sell, trade and I can't view the site on my laptop to find out.

Oh, thank you so much for all those lovely links, Quaisior! Checking them out now :)

EDIT: Finally found a wonderful site that sells nudes for a really decent price! Junky Spot (http://www.junkyspot.com/obindex.html)

I received my swap package today.  ;D I'll post pictures later today or tomorrow. I love everything maldania, thank you so much. I can't wait for my girls to try everything on. And thank you so much for the chocolate, I've been self-medicating with it lately.

tcmatteson, you're welcome. I've bought an Obitsu body from The Junky Spot and I highly recommend them. That's another option too: just buying a Pullip or Blythe head (called bait heads) and an Obitsu body. I was planning on doing that to make a mini me Pullip, but I accidentally sort of have one now that I rewigged one of my girls. I'm even thinking of eventually building a 60cm Obitsu doll as I have money to buy the parts from The Junky Spot.

I got 4 new girls but one is on the way, Casual Affair should be here soon and I haven't decided on a name yet.  Here are the girls from left to right:  Tegan, Ellerina and Sunny.  I got a new Pullip and her name is Angelique, I had to have her since it's my name too. :D

Everyone who has sent and had their item received, and also received and posted pictures should now have postitive feedback. 

There are still 5 people who need to receive: jw, sushiluvzombie, sheriffkarli, and Lothruin. Please pm me when you receive.  And Dreambelle, I need to know if you sent.

We have had a flaker and we need an angel for McBec27.  Does anyone here want to be an angel?  If you do, send me a pm.  I wanted to open it up here before I post it on the swap angel board.

Not sure who moved this thread to the swaps that are totally finished.  This swap is NOT finished.  We are still waiting for the angel package that Lothruin is sending to McBec27.
