Time to show off something I made for a Swap Bot swap.
The swap was gingerbread themed Dotee dolls. You had to make a pair to send to one partner. The only "rule" (beside the basic Dotee doll rules of having a hanger, tail, and being 4-6 inches long) was it had to be gingerbread man themed. It was a sender's choice, so I wasn't required to check out my swapee's profile to see things they liked but I did.
My swapee listed "Big Bang Theory" as one of her favorite shows.
So I just couldn't resist. . .
I made a Sheldon gingerbread man and "soft kitty" gingerbread kitty.
Of course, the Sheldon-bread man had to have the Flash shirt and wouldn't be complete without the infamous Sheldon-ism "bazinga" embroidered on the back. The "soft kitty" (for those unfamiliar, Sheldon likes to have a song "Soft kitty, warm kitty" sung to him when he's upset/ill) is from the same gingerbread man shape just with some pointy kitty ears on the head. To keep the gingerbread feel I had to have the rick rack on the arms/legs (to mimic icing) and kept the decorations very minimal on both (except for the backs--normally a cookie wouldn't have the back side decorated at all). I did super basic tails from some leftover string I had (string I got on packaging from a swap I received a while back). The hangers are also from recycled ribbon from a swap.
Made with felt, poly fill, rick rack, glue, string, ribbon, bells, and embroidery floss.
Super simple and (if I do say so myself) darn cute!
They're off to Canada today. Here's hoping they are well received.
