    (the last one above--I cut and pasted the directions below since
    they were in the middle of the page and might be hard to find)
    How to make a Dammit Doll
    What you need:
    Scraps of Material
    Stuffing--polyester or cotton
    Old buttons for eyes and belly button
    Yarn for hair
    Paper to make a pattern
    Make a pattern by folding the paper in half and cutting out a shape
    of somewhat like a ginger bread man. I copied the shape from a small
    cookie cutter that I had. It was easier to draw the shape first and
    then cut it out. I found a nice fat shape looks better than a thin
    one. After you have your pattern, use it to cut out two identical
    shapes. If you like, use pinking shears to make a ragged edge. On
    one side, sew on buttons for eyes and belly button. Using some yarn,
    attach the hair at the top. I added a mouth to mine by using a cross-
    stitch pattern that my sewing machine does. Now, put wrong sides
    together and stitch around the edge, leaving an opening to add the
    stuffing. Add stuffing,(don't over stuff it)and
    finish sewing up the opening. Write the following poem on a piece of
    paper and attach it around his neck:

    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!"

    Hope that helps!
