Details of swap:
Recently I bumped into some utterly adorable dolls by Humble Toys on Instagram.  One in particular made me think of our very own kittykill.  We both adored their sweet little mischievous expressions, and I soon started thinking of making one for myself, but every idea I had was about how I'd make one for kittykill.  Which fabrics I'd pick for a doll of her, how I'd style the hair, what accessories I'd crochet for it, etc.  

I quickly realized that what I'd really love would be to do a swap, in which we craft dolls based on how we see one another!  Would a Craftster friend choose to go with my own light red hair, my purple glasses, and my propensity for striped socks?  Or would they create something I couldn't imagine, such as a little Strawberry Princess?

For this swap we will be crafting a doll of our swap partners.  It may be similar to the style of the dolls above, or it could be completely different.  The goal is not to copy another artist's work, but just to be inspired, and take that inspiration in new directions.  Your doll can include sewing, knitting, crochet, embroidery, beading, as well as other mediums.  It should be a Large in terms of craft swap items.

Thinking about this one. Doll making isn't my thing, but I'm thinking a needle felted doll might be fun to try.
