Details of swap:

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

~OCEAN~

"By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea
You and me, you and me, how happy we'll be
When each wave comes a-rolling in
We will duck or swim
And we'll float and fool around the water
Over and under and then up for air
Pa is rich, Ma is rich so what do we care?
I love to be beside your side, by the seaside, by the beautiful sea....."

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.

Discuss future themes and get updates for the next month's theme 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.

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