Did a search on yahoo and found a few . . .
(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.
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!
