These make great little Dammit Dolls for stressful people andĀ can be thrown, jabbed, stomped and even strangled till all the frustration leaves you.
Attach this little poem to go with it:
When you want to kick the desk or throw the phone and shout,
You need to create a basic doll shape and cut it out of fabric.
You can use any color fabric you want, but if you intend on adding facial features you will need to keep the fabric light.
Cut out 2 body shapes and sew around the edges. Turn the doll the right side out and using a pen push out any edges in the hands and legs till it is all turned the right side out.
Then using your toy filling stuff the doll from the leg's up remembering to keep it firm enough so you can write against it. Keep filling the doll till you reach the head, then using some glue or a few hand stitches close up the head.
Use your waterproof felt pens to draw on some facial features and glue on the hair along the head seam. You can add as much or as little detail as you want to your doll.
