Details of swap:

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

~Literary~

This month we will be inspired by our partners' favorite books, authors or characters. For all of you LOTR, GoT and HP fans, this is another chance to get a little fandom dotee. Or perhaps it's Poe, Shakespeare, or Rand who floats your boat. And maybe, you'll introduce your partner to a new author or genre.

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 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, Smmarrt. 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.

"But dotees are so quick and easy to make!" I always tell myself. But if that's so, why does it always seem to take two weeks of concentrated planning and a week of work for me to make each one?

I'll almost certainly join this one too, but it'll take a few days for me to work up the nerve. Cheesy
