My Dotee Doll



She's a bit of a plain Jane trying to look posh, so I've called her Jingles. She's my first doll and I made her using some acrylic fleece I transfer dyed a while back. She's quite nice and soft, but didn't like to have her photo taken. I've heard people saying that these dolls tell you what they want to look like, well, she did anyway. She told me she wanted a side parting and turn her head slightly sideways, so I listened to her.

I just love your work Margaret and wished I could complete as much as you. Have you any items in the North Wales EG exhibition later this year?

She's very cute although she wouldn't probably admit it.
Lol.

She's doing her best to be cute isn't she Joyce (smile)
Whereabouts are you Sue? I hope to have some things in the exhibition. I have some work in a combined effort of Snowdonia with the SerenTex group and my vessel at least. I know there will be a lot of work by the SerenTex members.

I'm in Much Wenlock on the borders but even so it will probably be a whole day out! Oh no! lunch out, all that lovely scenery and an exhibition that I know will be good. It's a hard life!! Look forward to seeing the exhibition and possibly you too Maragret.

Dotee dolls are wonderful, and one of these days, I'm going to get around to making one myself. Yours looks grand! In a petite sort of way. =)

She's lovely! Isn't amazing the way dolls "speak" to you. They definitely have personalities.

I love your doll!! She is just cute, & perhaps coy!
What a fun project.
