This swap is to make a doll..call it a poppet, a voodoo doll, a dollie, an actualization device, or just "toy". You will make a doll of your choosing. Minimum size: fit in your hand. Maximum size: Your decision. Basically, make something that is fun, enjoyable and a little expression of you! But, don't make it a teeny-tiny "matchbox dolly". Make it big enough to fit in the hand.

Here is a great poppet site and here is another site with many types of poppets

This is not a partner specific swap...so you can begin designing as soon as you sign up.

Please make something beautiful and well-crafted. Make something you would enjoy receiving. And for added fun include some pins, a dollie outfit, a baby for the dollie...whatever...have fun, enjoy making the doll and then enjoy receiving yours!

I really want to do this but I'd knit the body and I don't know if I have time to squeeze this in before the send date.

Let me see how my current projects go and I can always sign up closer to the last day of sign up.

I love knitting dolls!

Thanks cobaltgypsy!:-) It came to me the other night @ a Mabon ritual. If this goes well, I think I'm going to start a few themed ones.:-) If you have time, indigo, that would be great!

I would love to do this...but we are moving on Nov 1st and I'll need at least 2 weeks to unpack before doing major craft projects...I hope you do another one though!

I love the color symbolism

yellow - success

white - positive

red - power

purple - spirituality

green - money

blue - love

Greenwoodtree, I will have more swaps for the voodoo doll/poppet lovers! You could always host one after you get moved in! (hint,hint):-)

Question, these don't have to be soft dolls? I'm thinking about a seashell doll of Yemayah...

How about altering a found ceramic doll into a goddess or spell bearer of fortune?

dangerine - Your interpretation.:-)
