I worked really hard designing a little felt doll today. I figured out how I wanted her to look and then set about drawing up a pattern to make her. You see, she is supposed to be for a swap, but I have to confess, I just don't know if I'll be able to part with her. I signed up for the Mardi Gras Dotee Doll Swap over at Swap-bot.com. The problem is, she has begged and pleaded with me to be able to stay and play with the other dotee dolls in my collection. She doesn't understand why I would want to send her away and quite frankly, I do not know why I would want to either..... Dilemmas. As of right this very second, she will be staying with me.. However, should she misbehave, I will send her out instead. The swap deadline is February 24th so I have a bit to ponder it. I can always make another Mardi Gras Dotee Doll for my partner. This one is just very special to me and I think I'm going to have to be selffish and keep her for myself.. Bad, I know...
A couple of days ago I shared my Matryoshka doll with you and today I have 2 more to share! The middle sized one still needs her button and the tiny one needs her embroidery, shawl and button. These are still WIPs, but I should have them done and ready to add to MY ETSY SHOP tomorrow (Thursday).
I have received my Valentine's Day Dotee Doll from my swap partner, Libby Mackintosh, of London, England. This little Dotee traveled long and far to grace my wall of Dotee Dolls! Thank you Libby!
After an exhausting evening with a stubborn teenager, I think I'm going to retire and start planning another Mardi Gras Dotee Doll.... ;)
