Back in 2008 an Australian lady named Dorothy (Dot) Christian made a small, blob-like fabric doll embellished with beads and created a bit of a phenomenon.
10 years later and we are bringing Dotee dolls to Beeston! They were traditionally made to swap ort gift and spread a little happiness.
There is no right or wrong way to make a Dotee doll, the only rules are no arms or legs, a loop at the top for hanging and a dangly tail.
Dotee dolls are usually 4 to 6 inches in length and can be decorated in any way you like – beads, buttons, sequins, reibbons and embroidery. As much or as little as you like. Your doll could be man or beast, male or female or a bit of a mix!
Any skill level can achieve great results, you don’t have to have any sewing experience at all. We will cover basic sewing techniques, embroidery and stuffing your doll in our session.
These little companion dolls are such fun to create. You can make a personal gift or keep your creation for yourself. You will take home your lovely doll and a goodie bag of treasures such as beads, ribbons and fabric to make more dolls at home if you wish.
All materials are provided plus beverages and light snacks.
