For this swap you will fashion a fabric voodoo doll for your partner to help ward off those nasty flakers. It can be of recycled fabric, new, or even felt--of any size. Be sure to also include a set of pins for poking those sensitive areas.

EDIT: Check out these cuties on Etsy for ideas: link.

The fine print: Ratings of 4.9 and above only. No no-sends within the last six months. Please only join this swap if you intend to rate your partner. I hate to crack the whip, but please have a full profile and log in at least two weeks before the sign up deadline. Don't be a Hater (Flaker)! You don't need to live your life wishing people would stop poking your ears with pins.

Alrighty then! You go DOS! Cracka that whip! Excellent idea for a swap! I am watching. This will be the top swap in no time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have some good pins, but they have hearts on them, wonder if I can paint them like broken hearts?

LINDA50 04/10/2010 #

I guess I should make this out of a fabric I do not like.

Frogglin 04/10/2010 #

I've had the best idea for my pins.

I love the idea of this swap! Not going to participate becuase I'm in enough swaps right now, but just wanted to say this is a really awesome idea!

DosLittleMonkeys 04/10/2010 #

I can't take credit. It's really the brainchild of @LINDA50 & @phtbtmgrl . Thanks ladies!

Some time ago a former workmate brought in a bunch of fabric offcuts for me to use "as a gift". Thankfully they are uniformly terrible fabrics, and i now have the perfect piece to use! (the rest I have shoved in the cleaning rag bag)

LINDA50 04/11/2010 #

Thanks! you just reminded me I have a bunch of upholstery samples some of them real small none very big. I am going to patchwork a mess together.

oooo I have this on watch! Although I work mainly in felt, I can always make it a poop brown color! HAH!

phtbtmgrl 04/11/2010 #

This is so fun!

I KNEW you'd be the one to create this swap!!!! Was just waiting for it to happen. Hmmm....I don't think I have any ugly fabric though...scavenges

DosLittleMonkeys 04/11/2010 #

I'm not using ugly fabric for mine. When I was little I had a voodoo doll that my parents brought me from New Orleans. It was made of straw (if I remember correctly) and had a dress made of of really pretty fabric. I think it was even wearing a necklace.

As an outsider looking in, I'd say that you should let anyone who has had a no-send join the swap. Isn't that a little hypocritical? ^laugh^

Vendetti 04/12/2010 #

Does anybody know a good site to see some of the ideas people use for voodoo dolls...? I really want to join this swap but I'm not sure if there are any special things for them. =) Thanks

Doodlebabe 04/12/2010 #

Those string dolls are pretty similar to voodoo dolls (isn't that what the company's called? Can't remember). They're a pest to make, at least for me, and take quite a bit of time but if you want I can send the pattern your way.

Vblarney 04/12/2010 #

I would so join this...but I'm a bit of believer and have learned not to mess with anything I have the slightest belief in (always bites me in the butt!)

If anyone starts a dammit doll swap though, I'm in! Y'all have fun and take pictures because I want to see your dolls!

beenieb333 04/12/2010 #

i like the ones that look like dolls more than the stringy ones.

DosLittleMonkeys 04/13/2010 #

@savannahjan sometimes people are rated ones for lost swaps, then the rater disappears so it can't be corrected...I don't want anyone with any new ones that don't have a darn good explanation.

DosLittleMonkeys 04/13/2010 #

@Vendetti check out these on Etsy for ideas. The string ones that they were discussing are on there as well.

SouthernPrincess 04/19/2010 #

Please let me know when you do another swap like this! I would love to sign up!

phtbtmgrl 04/19/2010 #

Ack! I'm having the problem of too many ideas and not enough doll. LOL.

DosLittleMonkeys 04/23/2010 #

I know. I went to pick up some stuff for her today and almost COMPLETELY changed my "design."
