This swap is for beginners as well as advanced dotee makers to try something new and inspiring! I've been playing around with rubber stamping on fabric before I sew the dolls, and I'm liking the new ideas!

For this swap you will have one partner to make one doll for. On the body of the doll you will rubber stamp a word or words (dream, wish, joy, inspire, cutie, delight, celebrate, enjoy etc.) and embellish the doll with more stamped images or whatever.

Sender's choice for color, style, or theme. You should google "dotee doll tutorial" for ideas on how to make one first. Basic rules apply: Must have a hanger, a tail, 3-5 inch body not including the hanger and the tail.

Send on time and rate fairly. Sending late means it didn't meet all of the swap requirements and your partner can rate you a three. Not rating at all is not only rude, but it isn't following Swap-bot rules. You might receive a doll you think isn't your style, but a doll sent on time and made correctly should be rated a 5.

Newbies allowed - here's your chance to build ratings by doing a great job. However, no experienced swappers with 1s or ratings below 4.9. I don't usually drop swappers until right before I assign partners. I read every profile, and I do drop people who I think might present a problem to other swappers (ratings slipping, comments that you send late, a lot of resends, no recent signing in, being listed as a problem swapper etc.)

EDIT: Do not join if you have 1's and 3's. You may think you're on your way to repairing your ratings, but the other swappers won't think it's cool. Be polite and ask first!

As things would have it I had given away nearly all of my stamps. but, I found that Joanns and Michaels had $1 stamps that had simple words and I've had good luck with them. A forum suggested two things: use a pink eraser on the stamp first so it accepts the ink better, and try spraying the fabric lightly with hairspray first. It keeps the ink from feathering out into the fabric and looking blurry. I'm doing the same thing for the faces and it's working fine!
