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


Do you sing in the shower? Vacuum to Motown? Play in a string quartet? This month's theme is MUSIC and all that conjures up for you. You will list 5 - 7 themes, artists, genres or musical instruments for your partner to draw inspiration from. No judgements - Abba, Beethoven, Jay-Z or Lady Gaga - whatever floats your musical boat.

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.

Discus future themes and get updates for the next months here.

What is a dotee?

A dotee is a mini art doll, meant to be traded or swapped. The dolls 6" tall or smaller, but the hanger or tail can exceed that measurement. They have a face, but do not require arms or legs (unless that's part of your design). Dotees have a loop for hanging, and 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, paperclay, yarn, beads, 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.

Love the theme this month! I feel like I'm getting to know the MDS regulars by their favorites on all of these topics. Cheesy

It's not goodbye friends - find me on the reddit group, on instagram @oceanna.kolb and oceanna.kolb at gmail. <3<3<3

I'll be joining but I'm too tired to fill out the questionnaire right now and I need to think about it. I am not getting many ideas for this - I can't even think of what I want to put as my favorites. I like music but I can't really say I'm a big fan or this or that.

Glad folks are interested - I will add the new swappers later today.

Wile E - theme songs, movie songs, jingles from commercials, wedding songs, car songs, camp songs, high school band, orchestra......the list goes on and on.

Glee club, chorus, choir and school plays.

Misheard lyrics, earworms and cheesy 70's variety shows.
