Details of swap:

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

~Muses~

This can be anything that inspires the recipient (an animal, spirit/goddess, etc.). This is up to your interpretation when you fill out your questionnaire.

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:

I'm surprised to hear that some of you are having difficulty coming up with your muses!  We're all so crafty here!  I named people, places, and a thing, I think.  One was Maya Angelou, and one was the beach.

Think outside the box maybe?

Anything that inspires you - even if it isn't in the craft realm - works. Or maybe something that has some other special meaning that gets you through a project or through the day? I'm including a favorite artist, a friend, and elements from nature in my list Smiley
