Legend says that Trouble (or worry) Dolls can help you solve your problems or ease your troubles while you sleep. If you have a problem, situation, or are in need of a helping hand you whisper your troubles to your doll. Then place your doll underneath your pillow and it is said that when you wake up your troubles will have a solution.

Let's make some worry or trouble dolls in mixed media fashion. Yarn, wood cuts, fabric, floss, paint, sewing, knitting, whatever you can come up with. Let your imagination run. Create something you would love to receive. Traditionally they come in sixes but for this swap let's make 3 to send to your partner. Make some kind of fabric bag or fabric envelope to store the dolls in. Doll should be about one to four inches tall. You could also include some accessories. Happy Creating. I did not post a video because I want you to use your own creativity. There are plenty of examples on the net and Utube if you need a little help.
