Description:

If you love getting Whimsy Jars filled with stuff and you absolutely can't get enough of those cute lil dotee dolls then this is the swap for you.

**** I CHANGED THE DEADLINE AND THE SIZE OF THE JAR SINCE THIS WAS A BIG CONCERN FOR ALOT OF PEOPLE DUE TO THE PRICE OF SHIPPING. I HOPE THIS HELPS GET PARTICIPANTS TO SIGN UP FOR THIS****

Details:

Each participant will have 1 partner and will have the job of using a 1 pt. jar/ 16 oz. to create a Whimsy Jar full of dotee making stuff along with a little dotee friend.

Contents of Jars can include but not limited to:

  • Fabric pieces (enough for a front and a back of each color/pattern)
  • Ribbon
  • Beads
  • Buttons
  • Threads
  • Pre-made faces
  • Felt
  • Anything else you use or you think your partner might use to make a dotee doll. ( Little hats, acessories, furniture, etc.).

Please check your partner's profile for color likes/dislikes and anything related to dotee making/creating they have listed. THIS IS a PROFILE BASED swap!!!!!

Again to make this CLEAR! :

1 partner/1 Whimsy Jar*** (1pt./16 oz.)****and 1 Dotee doll

This swap will be US ONLY due to cost and time contraints. Only swappers with 4.5 rating (I WILL be checking!!). Since this is such a detailed swap I won't be able to angel due to time allowance. I don't want games. If you sign up you must be able to commit!! Message me with concerns or questions.

That seems rather large. I think that a pint jar would be better. You'd be surprised at how much stuff you can get into a pint jar!! I just did a 6oz baby food jar with a Dotee in it and got loads of other stuff in there as well. A pint would be a lot less expensive to mail. JMHO. Mary

Would love to join this swap but I agree that you can get ALOT in a pint jar and MUCH cheaper to mail....

Yes, agree with above--it's on my watchlist, and will join if changed to a smaller jar. It's a great idea for a swap!

I have never made a dotee doll before, but am kinda interested in learning how. They are so cute and I think my granddaughter would love them!! However, I agree with ya'll. A quart jar if totally packed could be pretty heavy and cost a good bit to send. I'll have to give this one some thought.

If everyone feels that a smaller jar should be used than that is fine. I have gotten some messages on this and if everyone feels that a smaller jar or an extended swap deadline would encourage more participants to sign up then I will certainly go ahead and change those things. I thought 1qt would be ok to send but considering all that is involved I might have to re-think that. Let me know if you want to change things.

Thank you so much for changing to a smaller jar! I am joining as soon as I clear up a spot on my board. I am excited about this swap. This will be loads of fun. Mary
