Dotee Dollz

I've seen these done everywhere on the Internet. They are wee little dolls called Dotee Dolls. I'd never made up one until Doll Street Dreamers had a swap challenge. The rules were they had to be 3-6 inches long, with a loop and a tail that was to be homemade bead/s. I still have some of the fabric faces that Chris printed up for my class two years ago at AFIC, so I used them for these. One is called "chicken or egg?". I made this square stitch chicken from a chart on a Jill Oxton magazine & never could figure out what to do with it. The other is from material I made in the Embellisher class from Janet Clarke's class. The last was some left over beads from my BFAC 2010 kit. I had fun making them. Hardest part was NOT encrusting them with beads

I love them...especially the chicken doll...just too adorable. I've never made dolls like that, and wonder if I would have the patience to do all that beading without killing a husband or a couple chihuahuas!! LOL

These are so cute. I am planning to make some for Pat's Comfort Doll project. I have never made them, but they will be a nice little thing to do while waiting for the boys at practice etc.
