Welcome to the Goddess Spirit Doll Swap!
This swap is for one Goddess/spirit doll to one partner. This swap is to encourage everyone who is interested to make a Goddess/spirit doll.
I am listing this as a safe swap for beginners to give this a try. I’m going to set a longer signup date to give the opportunity to experiment and I am available to answer questions anytime.
If you are a more experienced crafter and worry about receiving a doll made by a beginner this might not be the swap for you.
Please make and accept your swapped dolls in the spirit of learning and sharing.
There are as many ways to make these dolls as there are artists to create them. Since this is the first one I won't set a theme, but I will give some guidelines as follows.
Your doll needs to be 3D, so nothing flat like paper or cardboard. Your doll should measure 3-6 inches tall, she may be taller but keep in mind that you will probably be receiving a smaller doll.
Your doll should have a face, although the features of eyes, nose and mouth are not required - some Goddess dolls are done with blank faces or objects that represent a face without the features drawn in such as, carbons, round mirrors, flat stones etc.
Many dolls are made from fabric then beaded or embellished in a variety of ways, however this swap does not require that your doll be made from fabric or if made from fabric sewn. Many very successful dolls are made from clay, knit/crochet, found or altered objects including fashion dolls. Items from nature can also be worked into Goddess dolls including embellished sticks, stones/crystals, driftwood, gourds, and bark etc.
In addition to the swap information please include a note expressing your inspiration for your doll and perhaps a bit about yourself.
If you follow my pinterest from my profile page there should be a board with Goddess Dolls. They are not all mine, but are some various creations that I collected up to show as examples.
Since this is a group swap I won't post specific ratings in order to participate, however I will check the profiles to make sure everyone is in good standing before I assign partners.
