I chanced upon Dotee Dolls this morning and after reading up a little, I just had to try my hands at it. And tried I did.

My First Set of Dotee Dolls
Made five in all!

Dotee Dolls were first designed by Dorothy Christian and named after her. There is now quite a community of people who trade them, just like ATCs.

Fav Dotee
This is one of my favourite.

Despite my primitive sewing skills, I was able to put these dolls together within a day averaging an hour and a half each. So, I figure anyone game enough should be able to make it too.

You could drop by Pauseability to do this.

I LOVE these, great job. I have been thinking about sewing again and maybe this would be a good project to get me back into it. I like the idea of trading them like ATC's.

It's so good to get all your comments.

It was fun making these Dotees, though they are far simpler than the many I have seen on the net. A few of mine turned out surprisingly better than I had expected, and this is part of the great fun of making them. There is really endless possibilities for variations.

Thank you for sharing in my delight.
