March Dotee Doll – Black and White (plus?)
This swap is for a Dotee Doll in black and white with one other color as an optional embellishment. This means that the dolls you make and the ones you receive could be just black and white or black and white with one other color used as an embellishment – such as red hair or a pink heart etc.
You will be making 1 doll for each of 2 partners.
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).
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.
Although I hope it won’t be necessary – I do want to know if you don’t receive your swap. I am willing and able to angel – as well I have a list of volunteers who will be happy to angel for this swap too.
If you have questions or concerns please message or email.
