Jan. Dotee Doll – Theme Creativity
This swap is for a Dotee Doll with an art - create theme. The theme can be anything that represents creativity for you. Think about a charm or button that spells out the word art or create. Use your imagination in colors, shapes or design. Use wild fun fabric or fabric printed with art or craft supplies. No limit to the possibilities.
You will be making 1 doll for each of 2 partners.
As a second part write a note or tag letting your partner know a bit about your creative process in making their doll.
I am making this international. The dolls are small and lightweight. They fit into small bubble envies and ship overseas with relative ease to the pocketbook.
If you don’t know much about Dotee Dolls I’ve included some links that should help.

It is not necessary to wait for the swap to close in order to work on your dolls since there is no specific expectation to match your partners profile. Choose some materials that appeal to you (and are keeping with the theme) and go with it!
Please feel free to change the shape or style of your doll according to your own expression, but make sure it has an attached face, tail and loop hanger. Let’s keep the size somewhat uniform and do them in the 3-6 inch range (finished size).
The Dotee in the photo is one that I made. I don’t like embellishing on a stuffed front surface so I embellish through the two layers of fabric then add a felt backing which I stuff and hand sew into place.
Now for the rest of it – Although I’m very new to hosting I have been swapping here for more than a year. I’m familiar with the way things work. What I’ve discovered is that determining a swappers risk isn’t a simple number.
I’ll be checking ratings, swap history and swap comments when deciding which swappers will be allowed to participate. If you aren’t a well established swap-bot swapper you’ll need a filled out profile AND you’ll need to provide me with links to other pertinent information that would help determine that you are a reliable swapper. i.e. other swap sites where you have participated, photo streams that show a history of your work, recommendations from swap-bot members in good standing.
If you have questions or concerns please message or email.

I am not encouraging not sending in the least, and should that happen the non sender will not be allowed in my swaps until they make good and satisfy me that it won't likely happen again, however I do want to know if you do not receive your dolls. Not only will I angel but I've had offers from other Dotee fans to angel should there be a problem.
