Apologies for my lack of posts, I’ve been very busy. Yesterday, I accidentally ventured into the weird yet wonderful world of ‘HooDoo’. I became so totally engrossed in this website that I ended up completely losing track of time.
Anyway, today I felt inclined to make a traditional ‘spirit doll’, or ‘voodoo doll’. However, these are not the kind of dolls you stick pins in to reap revenge at an enemy, no. Think of them more as a ‘portal’ to your matron goddess, or spirit, much like a statue, but on a more personal level.
I suppose it’s a little difficult to explain, but I ended up making a rather plump but cute Ceridwen - I have apologised for my sewing skills - which I will post photos of later.
It’s excellent fun, and a very cheap alternative to the actual statue of her (£110!!!), in fact I just reused a lot of old fabric that I had lying around and stuffed her with the remaining insides of an old toy. I also gave her my bracelet that I made, just to make up for the fact that she is rather lumpy in places.
She did take a while to make, and according to many websites about spirit dolls, I now have to spend 24 hours bonding with her… I’m not sure how well she’ll go down at school, or if she’ll even fit in my bag, but oh well!
