Making Dotee Dolls is the most recent Friday Night PJ Party w/ Thearica (HGTV Quilting Forum).
Last year, Thearica, contacted the creator of the Dotee Doll, Dorothy Christian, about doing a Swap on the HGTV Quilting Forum. I enjoyed hearing about the doll and doll craze that has gone all around the world (the craze also taking Dorothy by surprise). I watched the doll swap from the sidelines, secretly wishing that I had signed up (at the time I was busy making fish for the summer season).
This picture of a dancing African Dotee came to mind... so I worked on a design for movement.
She's got curves!
Found the perfect fabric, and cutting it on the diagonal will give the doll that dancing-look.
I am so pleased with her!
Thank You, Thearica, for a wonderfully-fun class.
And, a big thank you, to the Dotee Doll creator, Dorothy Christian.
I admire your creativity!
