I've made several of these little things now, and they are so much fun to do.  I derived the "worry" part of it from Guatemalan worry dolls b/c I love the idea of them.  In a nutshell, legend states that you tell them your worries before you go to bed, put them under your pillow, and they take your worries away.

The first one was for a little girl who was having surgery and LOVES pink and purple. 


This one was for my mom who LOVES orange and green.  I made it and sent it to her after her husband passed away.  (No, I never considered him my step-father.)

Sure!  I saw Ana Araujo make one on TV.  I added the legend part.  Here's the link.

that is such a neat idea  Grin  they looked knitted, but i never would've thought to make them out of gloves.  dang it, i just got rid of a bunch of mis-mates from my daughter.  sigh.  i'm sure there'll be more by the end of the season.
