My First Two Dotee Dolls




The above photos are the first two "Dotee Dolls" I have ever created. I was motivated to make these Dotee Dolls for a swap I joined on Cloth Doll on Stitchin Fingers. The original creator Dot of Australia has a wonderful tutorial and a lovely blog called, Dot's Life and Art.

The first Dotee Doll on the left is called Hearts and Roses. I used 100% wool felt as the fabric for her face. Then I used beads for her eyes. I also used Kreinik Metallics Thread to embroidery her mouth and to stitch her onto the rose fabric. I used hand dyed Silk Ribbon to create her roses and leaves. I beaded all the around her wee body and gave her a beaded tassel and a beaded chain for hanging her up.

The second Dotee Doll on the right is called "Rays of Sunshine". She has taken on a bit different shape which I think I like best. My Dear Husband drew her face and I embroidery it with hand dyed embroidery floss. I also used hand dyed silk ribbon to give her "Rays Of Sunshine". I gave her some wee daisy beads. She also has a beaded tassel and beaded chain so she can be hung. I really did enjoy creating these two Dotee Dolls and I hope to create many more.
