weight worries

Many of you have at some point in your lives come across worry dolls, which originate for the most part in Guatemala. A person who worries too much to sleep tells their worries to the doll and then places it under their pillow. The doll worries for the person and the person awakens rested and worry-free.
But what you may not have seen is a cute and amusing worry doll that is specific to ones particular worries, in this case, weight worries. Our wovens design assistant found this at the Cincinnati museum of art. I think the extra string around the middle is really cute!

I love the idea of this. I have never heard of this but it sounds like a wonderful way to put your worries aside. I would love one of these, or maybe a few. I have a tendency to worry about things.

I used to have a bunch of worry dolls when I was little. They were tiny, so I tended to lose one now and then when I put them under my pillow, but I loved them. So colorful and comforting. I wish I knew where they were now that my life is full of more worries than ever.
