This is my first time as a swap coordinator, so please be patient with me! I have yet to make an icicle doll and have been wanting to - what better time than the beginning of the new year?! So I decided to make my first icicle doll and host my first swap for one.

There is a link on the group's opening page to a website that has pics of icicle dolls and has a template and tutorial. You may use this, but it is not required. You can also go to google images and type in icicle dolls and you will get a number of photos that will provide inspiration and guidance.

We will be making one doll and sending it to one partner. Easy and fun! Please make your doll special and something that you yourself would love to receive. This is a sender's choice swap as far as color (or theme, if you choose to have one) goes, but I think it is always nice to check out your partners profile to see what they like and dislike. Extras are nice and always appreciated too, but not necessary. I'm leaving plenty of crafting time, which will allow for profile stalking and creative contemplation.

Wings are optional!

Does the face have to be printed? I have seen both printed and hand stitched, but mainly printed.

I don't know if there are definite rules to making an icicle doll or not - other than the shape. I'm open to creative interpretation - I think printed, hand stitched, molded clay or sculpey, just about anything would work. Even a nicely drawn face on paper. As long as it has a nice face!
