Details of swap: This is the fourth (I think) Junker Jane-style doll swap. Who is Junker Jane? She is a Portland-based artist - more info here:
http://junkerjane.com

You make a doll based on your partner's preferences - the fun thing about these dolls is that the wide range of fabrics and embellishments you can use. In past swaps, swappers made cats, snakes, an octopus and other creatures and critters with many types of fabric and lace, stain, painting and found objects. Some folks prefer the grungy look while others have used bright and colorful fabrics. It is artist's choice ultimately but there is so much freedom to making these dolls.

Not a doll maker? That's okay, too. The limbs are often attached externally and the sewing can be sketchy and uneven, which adds to the charm of these creations.

For international partners (if we have some) - It is okay to send doll UNSTUFFED to save on postage. I know that postal rates in the US are high so this will help with postage.

Look here for some more ideas:

I'd say the dolls can be 8 inches or larger. The limbs are usually mismatched so that can contribute to the overall length.

By the way, I do not have internet at home (too many illegal fireworks, perhaps?) so most of my updates will be done during work hours. I might try to hook up my laptop to my old modem to see if that works until I can get a service person here. So apologies in advance. I can post answers on my phone but it's too hard to do the other swap stuff this way.
