Worry Doll

These unique Uber mini dolls I bought from one of my favorite store in downtown Bendigo.
Its named "Peruvian Worry Dolls". Handmade from Peru.

There is legend among the highland indian villages of Peru, that is you have
a problem,then share it with a worry doll.

Before going to bed,tell one worry to each doll,then place them beneath your
pillow. While your sleep the doll will take your worries away.

Let's paint your own!

Fabric paints are now available in most art shops.
They come in various forms - tubes, jars, etc.
My favorite brand of fabric paint is "Fabric Fun" of  Pentel.
The price inexpensive (around $15.00)  for 15 brilliant colors!
or you might decide to buy any brand for just several colors or whole set.

What you can decorate :
1. Sneakers
   If you have a plain one, decorate it! Its a good idea to sketch it in your design
   before you painting it.
2. A hat
   Don't use nylon hat! Choose a straw or fabric hat (cotton hat).
3. Pillowcases,Handkerchiefs and tshirts
   You could design animals,fruits etc Some ideas - cut out pencil shapes or
   use a sponge and a tooth brush

Have fun!
