Making something new

This week I was introduced to the ‘Dotee Doll’. So named apparently after the woman that invented the pattern. I came across her in an art swap group that I am in and an online art friend Roz called the swap.

I made one on Wednesday night and found it very do-able even in front of the tellie and while chatting with my family. I used a fat quarter that I had bought just because I loved the patterns and colours, even though I don’t quilt. I stuffed it with normal cushion stuffing, and used a vintage button, some fluffy wool and some beads as her accessories.

You can also see the picture below of one half way through (before being stuffed and before her face is stitched on), and afterwards, with her hair sewed down and little pom poms along the hem.

they are quick to make, simple, and deliciously fun.

Have a go! Share what you make!
