1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / JANUARY 2019 - Fabric Art Journal Page or Dotee? on: October 29, 2018 03:00:31 PM
I want to complete my fabric art journal and make it into something.....do you also?

Or maybe make some dotees since it's been a while. I will NOT get talked into a monthly series or year-long - just a few for fun early in the year.

Discuss below - I like planning ahead!

Details of swap:

Mini prayer flags - everything small is fun, right? You will make 3 mini prayer flags. The finished size should be at least 4" x 6" but no larger than 5" x 7". You will keep one flag and send the other two to your partner. Your partner will keep one and abandon one in the world.

The base can be fabric with any kind of embellishment - paint, buttons, paper, more fabric, ribbon, yarn, beads, photos, felt, and the list goes on. The same basic instructions for making flags apply* - add a rod pocket at the top so the flag can be hung from a twig or a dowel. You do NOT have to send the twig or dowel!

The three flags do not have to be copies - you can repeat colors, fabric, or embellishments to make a set but it is not necessary.

*If your finished flag is 4" by 6", you should start with fabric that measures 4" by 9" - the extra 3" makes the rod pocket.

Please post a comment in the discussion thread once a week or so - that way we can all keep in touch with each others' progress. Thank you.

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Mini Prayer Flags on: April 26, 2018 10:10:56 PM
I've been thinking about this all week for some reason so I had to make some.



This one measures about 3.24" by 5.5".



This one is a bit larger, 3.75" by 5.5".

And the last one...



3" by 5.5"


I didn't measure before making but I was aiming for about index card size.

If you like these, I am planning a swap to make a set of three - keep one, swap two and your partner will abandon the third.
Thanks for looking!

Just thinking it might be fun to make smaller flags, maybe 3" x 5" or 4" x 6" (finished size.)

The advantage to this would be that you could make multiples - maybe 3.
One to keep and 2 to send and your partner abandons the third flag in his/her neighborhood.

Details of swap:

In this swap you will make your partner one Dotee doll in the theme of...

SCIENCE

Anything goes as long as it's science themed! Can be a person, place or thing! Maybe a cosmological constant or a theory or a fictional world where science has gone awry.

This is a monthly swap, but you do NOT have to join in each month's round! Feel free to only join in for themes you love, or to pass on months when you have no spare time.

Read more about the original idea here.

What is a dotee? (by Smmarrt)

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.

Check out the galleries from previous dotee swaps to get some ideas:
