Dammitt Doll

Material:

Scrap Material
Poly-fill
Button belly button
Tiny black beads for eyes
Wool (for hair)
Darning needle and Black embroidery thread
Needle and thread

Step 1. Cut out two gingerbread-looking shapes out of scrap material for body. (Pinking shears can be used to give a more even look)
Step 2. Place the two pieces together and sew around the outer edges but leave an opening to fill body lightly with Poly-fill. Then hand stitch closed the opening.
Step 3. Using Black embroidery thread stitch black “x” for mouth.
Step 4. Sew on two tiny black beads for eyes.
Step 5. Then use your darning needle to pull wool one piece at a time through top of head.
Step 6. Tie in knot to keep in place. You can then unravel each piece of wool to give him a fuzzy hair look if you wish.
Step 7. Sew on a small button to make his belly button.
Step 8. Finally, pin this cute poem to him and give him to anyone who’s having one of those days.

“Whenever things don’t go so well…
And you want to hit the wall and yell…
Here’s a little dammit doll
that you can’t do without.
Just grasp it firmly by the legs
and find a place to slam it
and as you whack the stuffing out
Yell, “DAMMIT! DAMMIT! DAMMIT”
