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:

Filling out my questions!

I shortened the sign-up period so swap will close next Sunday night at 6 PM PST.
Then three weeks for crafting and sending.
Hope that timetable works for everyone.

Yea!  Filling it out right now!

And I love the dotee you posted for our theme, Smmarrt!  It feels Celestial without being same-old.

The thing about believing that you can do anything is that you actually do things!
