Details of swap:

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

~History and Myth~

This month we will be inspired by our partners' favorite historical figures, time periods, and myths. Do you love the style of Victorian England? 19th century pirate queen Ching Shih? Anansi the trickster? Your dotees can reflect specific people/characters, or more general events, times, and legends. Do some research and have fun!

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: For shipping within the USA - please get a tracking number for your package. Non-US packages - please save your receipt as proof of sending. When you send AND receive, please remember to PM your partner and the organizer, Acadian Driftwood. Posting in the swap thread is not enough!

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.

Well, I'll be thinking hard while I type up my questionnaire. XD Lots of things to consider. I'm going to try to be very specific.
