Details of swap:

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

~Color~

This month's theme is very broad - we will make a dotee in our partner's favorite colors! Monochrome, rainbow, and other combinations of colors are all encouraged. You may also choose to incorporate other elements that your partner likes by looking at their profile or pinterest.

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.

so happy about the theme. color does wonderful things for my spirit.  On my questionaire, I will be very specific about my likes, as only true turquoise (not teal, not sky blue) is for me, and schoolbus yellow, etc. I wonder if there is a website that gives standardized color names that we could all refer to if anyone out there is as picky as me!

oooooooh, just found this!!  Very helpful for me. seems to be all the great choices on there, visible to all

I must be crazy to sign up for this swap. November is my "tear out my hair" month. Craft Fair, holiday choir rehearsals, family t-day dinner at my house, crazy new busy job. Yup, time to make a dotee. Off to do my Q now.

I wish I had a specific favourite colour like blupaisan, but I'm sure I can think of a few preferred ones. I like the wide-open quality of this theme - maybe I can finally make something more abstract and less fussily "realistic". Grin
