Cute Handmade & DIY Worry Dolls

Posted on September 8, 2020 by

Worry dolls are tiny,  mostly handmade, dolls that originate from Guatemala. You can tell the doll your sorrows and worries and hide it under your pillow for the night. The next morning all sorrows are said to be taken away by the worry doll. Making a worry doll seems like a nice activity. They are so small that you could easily pop them in your pocket or bag. They would make a great gift as well! I think they could even travel in an envelope.
