Dotee Doll Swap

Here are my very first Dotee Dolls. I made them for the Doll Street Swap. I had so much fun I made four of them. I used the flash on my camera, so the pictures on the charms didn't show up so well. I hope whoever receives them enjoys them!

Wrapped Doll

This is the second doll I've done from Ray Slater's book. It was the first time I made a wrapped doll. The instructions suggested a knit fabric, but I did'nt have anything suitable so I cut batik strips on the bias and used them. It worked pretty well. A few frayed edges but not to bad. By the time it was wrapped with other fibers you could not see any loose threads. It was a relatively quick and easy process. My hubby made the armatures for me and he got a little carried away. I now have five of them. Beter get wrapping!
