Dammit Doll

What you need

Calico or felt
Wool or doll hair
Toy filling
Sewing machine
Felt pens



Instructions

Attach this little poem to go with it:

When you want to kick the desk or throw the phone and shout,
Here’s a little dammit doll you cannot do without,
Just grasp it firmly by the legs, and find a place to slam it,
And as you whack it’s stuffing out, yell,
dammit, dammit, dammit!

You need to create a basic doll shape and cut it out of fabric.

Use this pattern:

Dammit Doll Pattern.

You will need to re-size the pattern to fit your needs.

You can use any color fabric you want, but if you intend on adding facial features you will need to keep the fabric light.

Cut out 2 body shapes and sew around the edges. Turn the doll the right side out and using a pen push out any edges in the hands and legs till it is all turned the right side out.

Then using your toy filling stuff the doll from the leg’s up remembering to keep it firm enough so you can write against it.

Keep filling the doll till you reach the head, then using some glue or a few hand stitches close up the head.

Use your waterproof felt pens to draw on some facial features and glue on the hair along the head seam. You can add as much or as little detail as you want to your doll.

– Other Poems and Sayings –

Computer Dammit Doll

Weird things happen as you hit return

Or your keyboard just can’t spell

Things don’t seem to be going well

And the computer has a sudden “chill”

So instead of yanking the plug out

Just take this doll and whack it against the monitor as you shout

Dammit! Dammit! Dammit!

Road Rage Dammit Doll

In your car as you go to work

The guy in front is a jerk

Since he won’t get out of the way You yell, “I need to get there TODAY!”

Then to get more frustration out

Just grab the doll and whack it

On the dashboard as you shout,

“Dammit, Dammit, Dammit!”

Sports Rage Dammit Doll

When the referee has made a bad call

And you want to yell and hit the wall

Or a player’s missed an easy score

And you can’t take it anymore,

Just grab this doll and whack it

At the TV as you shout And knock the stuffing out,

Dammit! Dammit!, Dammit!!

  3. Wow… Awesome. I love the poems. They crack me up. How about sewing machine frustration?
    When your stupid machine just won’t work
    And everyone seems like they are being a jerk
    Grab this little doll and yell
    Till you get over your little spell…
    “Dammit, Dammit, Dammit!!!!”

  4. also, in the case of making yard hair, sew loops of yarn in a row over top of head, adjusting for length of finished hair length. After sewing firmly in place either by machine or hand, cut loops, and brush to fuzziness desired :)

  5. My dad made me a doll from one of his old world war II socks, and instead of painting the face on or gluing the hair, he embroidered the facial features, and sewed the fuzzy yarn hair securely in place. NO kidding, and it was the coolest rag doll I had. Of course in the course of 66 years I do NOT have her any longer, but I am going to make one as close to resembling her for my granddaughter.

  6. I LOVE this project but have trouble sourcing quick hair applications for them. Any ideas? I want to make a few of them so don’t want to fiddle around too long with the hair. ALSO…what a GREAT site this is. I too found it by accident..

  7. Cute idea with many uses.

  8. wow you could turn this into a psychology project or throw darts at it for great stress relief

  9. My boss is getting one in the morning!!!!

  10. I’m going to give these to every stressful person in my family, so I guess I have to make one for everyone. lol

  11. I was a nurse manager at a long term care facility. A family member brought these for all of the staff. How fun!

  12. themidnitesun says:

    This is hilarious! LOVE the name :) Going to make one for all the stressed people I know (including me)

  13. I think this is a very cute project!
    For those who don’t like using the term “dammit doll”, have you listened to the radio lately? They use “damn”, “hell”, and “ass”. I agree that you might want to change the name for young children to discourage the use of these terms at school/daycare. Eventually they will discover the words though. I think it is better to hear it from a parent who then tells them not to use the word than from kids at school.

  14. Love the dammit dolls, gave them to friends going through serious health issues. For those of you who are so pc….get over yourself…..slammit doesn’t have the same effect as DAMMIT, DAMMIT, DAMMIT.

  15. I made 4 of them in 6 hours for my Nascar fans. They are so qute. I LIK

  16. love this doll,havent seen one in many years….had one many years ago made by my mom..love it!!!!!
