Dotee Dolls and Holidays

Just recently, I discovered the wonderful little dolls called Dotee Dolls. I did some research and found they are tiny handmade dolls between 4 to 6 inches and have a hanger made of ribbon or beads and a beaded tail. The doll are made for swapping and gifting. the original Dotte Doll was created by Dot, an Australian doll designer. Dot also has a shop on Etsy where you can purchase Dotee kits to help you get started. Or you can so a search and find all sorts of instructions and variation. You will be amazed at all the little dolls you will find on Flickr. There is also a flickr group

My first Dotte Doll was made for a friend and I am now working on another.

I decided to make a few faces to have on hand.

These little dolls are so much fun and make up fairly quickly.

This week I am flying to Copenhagen to start a Baltic Cruise. One of the highlights is two days in Saint Petersburg, Russia. I am so looking forward to this trip and will post some pictures when I return.

I love your dotte doll! Copenhagen is fun, if you get a chance to 'do' the city just do it. On Saturday there is a very large flea market, loppetorv in Danish, a must see! I have never been to St. Petersburg, but that must be so beautiful. Have a lot of fun and take care!

What a cute idea the Dotee Doll is and such a great idea for a swap.
Oh lucky you what a wonderful trip you will have. I have a friend who has been to St Petersburg several times and just loves it
