I'd seen a dotee doll on someone's blog and thought I'd like to have a go. I'm not in a scrapping mood ATM and so my knitting has reappeared! I bought some lovely fabric by Kaffe Fassett from an ebay shop in shades of green. Friday night I sat at the dining table and started- sewing is minimal so it took no time at all to create the body. I added random beads for her 'hair' and used felt for her face. The next day I painted up some Grungeboard with Ranger Paint Dabbers and Lumiere paints and added these to Miss dolly. She was really quick and fun to make!
The kids all decided that they's like to make one each and even though they started out with the same basic doll body they managed to come up with three very cute and very different dotee dolls!
Miss Acorn has made a second 'Little Brother' dotee for her doll and I have another two on the go!

Because I loved Flo's Little Boxes ATC swap so much a group of us are doing a mini swap. Only 10 of us but so many peeps saw the little houses and loved them and wanted to have a go!!
Here are mine for the swap. I used Chookie's 'Were you Born In a Barn' house I received in Flo's swap as a template for my Police House because I loved the shape so much!! I hope Chookie doesn't mind?
