Details of swap:

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

~Around The World~

This month we will be inspired by our partners' favorite countries and cultures. Maybe you're an Anglophile, and would like a Queen Elizabeth or James Bond dotee! Or you've always wanted to travel to India, and your partner could make you a traditionally painted elephant or a Bollywood dancer.
Please remember to be thoughtful in this swap - when borrowing elements from a culture that isn't your own, be respectful of things that others hold sacred.

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.

Shipping: When you send, please pm your partner and our co-organizer blupaisan. She will be in charge of the gallery and of marking everyone's sent status. I will be away July 24 - August 5th, so only pm-ing me won't do you any good!
Please also remember to message blupaisan and your partner when you receive your dotee. Thanks y'all!

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:

I'm just getting back into swapping after a couple year hiatus while I finished college. This will be a nice little swap to get back into the swing of things. Smiley
