I made these three for round 8 of the dotees swap - my first! After I finished them I just wanted to make more.

My first partner liked pirates and mermaids - so I made Bartholomew James and his daydream.



My next partner had this great quote in her questionnaire: "to fare on - fusing the self that wakes with the self that dreams." I based Dahlia off of that.



My last partner liked weird things... and insects! I wonder if anyone's ever made a Madagascar hissing cockroach dotee before? This is Anosy.



Thanks for lookin'!

I am SURE  the cockroach is indeed a first!  Is that a sculpy mermaid?  Tell me more about her...  They are all awesome!

Thanks! The mermaid is a button I got in the Sea Life swap. Bartholomew James saw her near Barbados, but no one believes him. He doesn't really mind, though.

I'm adoring the pirate dotee Smiley I love the thought bubble with the mermaid in it- it's just a cool idea overall and very unique! And the embroidered dotee is absolutely lovely! I'm not a fan of bugs- things with more than four legs just tend to creep me out a bit, but I do like the tiny beads hanging from its legs. These turned out really awesome, especially for your firsts!
