~Fauna~

Anything goes as long as it's animal themed! Mythological or extinct animals are welcome as well as all of our earthly creatures.

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:

What a great first theme!  And, that dotee is wonderful for the theme as well!

I have a few ideas percolating so I will send in my questionnaire this weekend!  YAY!  I love small but detailed swaps like this!  Thanks Acadian Driftwood for starting this with a bang!

This is soooo tempting... I'm going to hold off signing up though until next week, when I should have a better idea of this month's work schedule.  If it looks like I'll have time, I totally want to join!

lol tiny little things that tend to grow into huge time sucking projects!  The key is to know when to stop and let it be a dotee! Grin

They are very addicting, no matter if they are simple or elaborate...I love them all!
