My Dotees

In Dollstreet doll club we are doing a swap on Dotee dolls. The rules are as follows 1. The Dotee must have a fabric body, a hanging loop, and a 'tail'. 2. Make one to three dolls to trade. 3. Make the doll body between 3" and 6" long and no clay face. So this is what I did. I am not sure if they are what they should be but I liked this shape and made the dolls. They did not turn out as I had planned either but that is not surprising either lol! Oh I just realised that I have to add a handmade charm to it. So will do that later.


  1. Shashi they look very perky to me.....and like they are dancing.... the little danglies seem like dainty legs and feet....

  2. Shashi,
    The shape of these is great, so elegant and with great movement. As always the faces are stunning.

  3. I love your Dottie! The others I have seen didn't appeal to me, but your's are totally different. Love the different shape you gave them. Very artsy.

  4. OMG,

    I'm in love...
    Absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Love your work.


  5. WOW! Whoever gets yours is one lucky dollmaker - I especially ADORE that gold one. Great work Shashi, as well as interesting and different. I love it that you put your own spin on the Dottee thing.

  6. Those Dotee dolls are so 'you' Shashi! Very eatheral and elegant and flowing with movement. I hope I get one of yours!

  7. They are beautiful and Karen said it so well!!

  8. Oh, how wonderful. Makes me want to take mine back and do them over--not like your, no but more of my own style!

  9. these are so amazing... makes me sorry that I am going to have to back out of this swap due to my hands not doing what I need them to do.... love the fabrics and your faces are awesome! You did Dote dolls proud!

  10. Great work Shashi, I like all three, but the second one is my favorite....beautiful face and bead work.

  11. .. and i get to see them in person!

  12. Very unusual, very creative and down right purdy...that's Texan for pretty.


  13. They are lovely Shashi....so unique. I especially like the collage effect of the third one. Wondering how you did that?
