Details of swap:

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

~Fauna~

Anything goes as long as it's animal themed! Mythological or extinct animals are welcome as well as all of our earthly creatures.

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.

Read more about the original idea here.

What is a dotee? (by Smmarrt)

A dotee is a mini art doll, meant to be traded or swapped. The dolls are generally smaller than 6" with a face, but do not usually have arms or legs (unless that's part of your design). Dotees have a loop for hanging, 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, canvas, denim, 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:

Ah, bummer. I was trying to make this a quick swap so we could squeeze January in. February will have a longer sign up and send out date. Dotees are small enough that 2 weeks of craft time seems reasonable, but depending on feedback, we could push back the dates if needed.
