Dotee Doll (part three)...

Same day ... later.  You know I couldn't just walk away ... once I found some more 'stuff' to use.

I finished her instead of bothering with vacuuming, laundry, etc..  although I did do the treadmill and some other exercise.  So... I'm feeling okay about it. There's always tomorrow for the other things...

She is finished and I'm pretty happy with her.  I learned several things and will do them a bit differently next time..and, I will definitely look for some transparent beading line if there is any...or use white next time... but, other than that.... she's pretty cute.

That was fun.

The "Dot" pose...   this is always how she displayed them... oops... got her on the wrong finger .... okay, so .....close then, but not exactly, which is fine, because she is not exactly a Dot doll but similar, and that's what I was aiming for when I began this.


















and...reclining on a chair.... you can see some colour on her cheeks and nose in this one....I used some blush on a Q tip.... instead of doing more beads..I thought there was plenty around her face already.  Next one I may not use quite that many...and, in retrospect... I wish I had used some greens on her face ... the purple seems a bit blah to me.  But, as I say...  not necessary for her to be perfect.... they are just cute, fun little projects.



















Next ..... I'm dragging out my fabric and choosing a second bit of colour for a Ditto Dotee ..  ... but, first I must eat.

There is always tomorrow................................................

Oh what a cutie! I'll let you know..you can't just make one!

I use Nymo thread for beading, and as I do loads of beading, I buy a whole roll and it lasts me months.
Looking forward to seeing a whole swag of Dottees!

You've done a real beaut job of creating your version of a Dotee Doll Vee!
I think they could well become addictive :D)
In any case, much more interesting that the old vacuuming etc. Cheers now!

Sounds like a lot of thought and work went into this little gem. She is very cute indeed! I think they are meant to be unique..so however you made her or whatever you think you should have done....she is beautiful!

what a cute idea!
