This swap was one another member and I thought would be a fun swap to do. For this swap, everyone is going to create their own doll using the same template found HERE.
You should follow the directions for downloading and printing so everyone's doll is exactly the same size of the one inch head. The site's owner gives detailed instructions for downloading and printing, so refer to those instructions and everyone make their doll with the head at approximately one inch as she says.
Here's where the fun starts! When you make your doll, print out and put toether an extra one to use as a template for making clothes. (You don't want to use your doll as it will get worn from the tracing process of using it for a clothing template.) Then, every two weeks, we will post a swap for different articles of clothing for your doll. We will continue this swap so everyone who enters can complete a wardrobe for their own doll.
The good thing about this swap is that it is going to be a cheap postage swap. You can sign up for as many or as few pieces of clothing as you want for this doll. You never send your doll out - you just collect outfits for your doll. This first swap has three weeks for sending out to give you time to make your template doll and to make your underwear outfit.
Nuts and bolts:
The first swap is to create a set of underwear for the doll.
Make some kind of fasteners for the underwear - it can tie on with ribbons or have tabs.
The clothing can be made entirely of cardstock or it can be a mixture of fabric and paper. Whatever you make it out of, please try to make it so that it is not really flimsy and easily torn.
Well-made item. Make something you would like to receive. Pretty and fancy, of course!
Do NOT send your doll.
The send-by date is a swap requirement, so if you do not have time to send this out on or before the send-by date, please do not be disappointed if you are rated down.
I will angel for this swap, but if you flake, please expect to see your name on the flaker's wall of shame!
