“Worry Dolls” originated in Guatemala, but have since migrated to Mexico and other parts of the world. They are tiny, colorful, handmade dolls that are made out of thin thread and wire. They are adored by children everywhere.
The tale: When a child is worried about something, they are encouraged to tell the doll, and then place it under their pillow when they go to sleep. The doll absorbs the child’s worries, so when they wake up they are worry-free.
It is fun to make colorful muñecas quitapenas. I made some out of clay (I didn’t have any string). What are some other materials you can use to make these beautiful dolls?
