*CLOSED* Art Doll Hat Swap SIGNUPS!

SIGNUPS ARE NOW CLOSED. PARTNERS WILL BE DISTRIBUTED IN THE NEXT DAY OR TWO.



Wow! I'm happy about the response! Okay, let's do it! Here are the details:

The above dollie is by Jennifer Bohrer over at Art Chix Studio.See her tutorial on art doll hats here.

So what is an Art Doll Hat? I think that they are wearable dolls. Typically in a party hat shape. (in fact, many of them use a party hat as a base!) The examples I have seen often use the hat shape as a skirt for the doll. The doll itself is an embellished photograph or other image. Not a 3D doll. You can get as creative as you want but they seem pretty easy in their construction.

Most of the materials are available at Art Chix Studio but feel free to get creative!!!

SIGNUPS: You can sign up now through Monday, July 16. That will give us all time to finish up the current Sweet Goodness Swap! Just send me an
e-mail at bibanon1[at]gmail.com Please include your real name and address and blog if you have one. Also, let me know if you would be willing to mail internationally.
After I send out the matches, you can discuss ideas, likes/dislikes, etc with your partner. I will try to send out matches on Tuesday, July 17.

DATE TO SEND OUT HATS: Please try to mail out your hats no later than Tuesday, July 31!

Feel free to grab the button above and post it on your blog. The more people we have, the merrier!!!

Hooray, Jus! I'm still thinking about how I want to package yours. I just looked at the Flickr group and saw Artsy Fartsy's packaging. Wow.

Sounds like fun! Although I've never made anything like that before! Maybe you can give us a few more examples! I'm always game for something challenging and open to interpretation!

Sarah B. B. said...

Yow! Those examples are cool, and I'm mighty glad you included them, because I really had no idea what an Art Doll Hat was... I'd definitely be game for trying one, though I make no promises as to the results... I'd need a very understanding partner. ;)
