Hmm... well I know they look a little like voodoo dolls now BUT if I work like a crazy woman tonight I should get them finished in time to give one to each of my big girl's friends as a party gift.
These sweet little dolls were dreamed up by the crafty women over at a Time 4 Craft at Toadstool House and are called Affirmation Pocket Friends "these wee folk are created with someone special in mind that needs a litle friemd in their heart and pocket to remind them to draw on their own magical inner strength when they need it".
I asked each of their mothers what their daughter's favourite colour was and what an appropriate affirmation would be; so each is personalised for the child.
I will write out a verse similar to this one for each:
I have a little pocket friend
Whom when hold their hand
and tell myself that I
I truly know I can.
Well must dash. I have to read to my big girl before planting nine kisses on her head. Make two more wee folk and finish the three voodoo ones before sneaking back into my big girls room to thrown her birthday quilt over her sweet sleeping self.
