Someone on one of my groups started talking about Dotee dolls and when I saw these silly little dolls I just had to start creating. On the day I finished making them I was beginning to wonder what I was going to do with them. Well on that same day another lady from a different group told everyone that there was this lady collecting small dolls 6" and under to send to women's shelters. She gave this link http://comfortdolls.blogspot.com where there is a wonderful story of what this lady is doing, and why she's doing it. There are lots of pictures of the dolls she is collecting and sending, and now my Dottee's have a reason for being created and will begin what I hope is a fasciniating journey for them.

A lady asked me to created a cell phone pouch to hang off the front strap of her purse and this is what I came up with. The print is a cotton inkjet print with some silk ribbon embroidery and beading. The closure is a metal vintage button.

I have been working on these beaded art dolls the last couple of weeks. Sometimes I wish that I could just concentrate on one thing, meaning one art form, but when I get bored with something it's so easy to start creating something else.
