Welcome to the January Unique Holiday Dotee Swap.

This is a series of Dotee swaps that are themed for unique holidays in each month. We've already done September, October, November and December but would still love for you to join us! We should always celebrate the everyday moments.

So, go to this website and read the different holidays for January.


Signups until December 8, and mail by date 22th. You can start these before partners are assigned since it's senders choice.

Regular dotee rules apply: 3-6", face, tail and hanger. Please sign your dotee. It is a unique piece of art. Please rate when you receive and please don't flake. I will angel, but I hope I don't have too. Please let your partner know what holiday your sending for (would be great if it was written on the dotee - BIC makes these great fabric pens that aren't too expensive, get the ultra fine point, perfect for wrtiing).

Have fun!

Newbies welcomed with a well filled out profile. I have the right to deny anyone with a questionable profile.

I'm interested in joining this swap, but this will be my first Dotee, so I just wanted to make sure I understand all the requirements of a Dotee doll before signing up. I read the requirements listed, of course, but the doll I have in mind is just a little different than others I've seen pictures of. For instance, I'm thinking of adding a tail that would come off the side of the doll and not be made of beads. Also, all the dolls I saw had human (or at least human-ish) faces... Can a dotee be an animal? Thanks for your help! :)

Hi.... we'd love to have you. A dotee can be anything (in my opinion)... an animal face one is fine. I like to be creative with mine, and have several kitty dotees hanging around me. As far as the tail, I think it'll be fine if it were ribbon, I've received a few dotees like that, that didn't have beaded tails, but ribbon ones. I've made and received dotees with alpha beads for the tail, and they've also been in other locations too.

The only requirement for this swap is that it has to be a unique January holiday.

Any other questions, just ask.

OH- I do have a question- Do their faces have to be felt? Umm , Could one use molded clay faces?

Shannoncollar 12/ 7/2012 #

Hi Magicinker, welcome! Alot of people are using clay faces on their dotees... so that's fine if you want to make one like that.
