You can make everything from scratch, but if your group chooses to use provided kits, your $10.00 Spirit Doll kit will include:

  • A hand-made body blank that you will stuff 
  • Stuffing for the body blank and a cuticle stick to assist in the stuffing
  • Fabric wraps to cover the body blank
  • Yarn and twine to secure the fabric wraps
  • A One of A Kind hand-made molded polymer clay face. The face can be colored to accentuate its features.
  • Yarn for hair
  • One charm to get your started
  • A pin back

Just for Fun -- The Spirit of Your Existence

Make a 4" tall good luck charm based on ancient dolls that were thought to contain spirits who could help with everyday life.   The sample doll on the left is the spirit of the Bad Hair Day. Her unruly head has attracted birds who have found a place to nest.​ I appeal to her regularly. She understands my daily plight.

Do you need some help with navigating life's rough roads? Imbue your doll with personality. Help her focus with found objects that appeal to you: beads, souvenir charms, threads, found objects (special stones from a particularly memorable site, twigs and herbs, a tea bag tag from a delicious meal, a flattened bottle cap found during a walk).

Just as Spirit Animal Guides choose their human, your doll will develop in your hands. There is no "pattern" for spirit. No two are ever alike.
