According to Guatemalan legend, if you tell these dolls your worries at night and put them under your pillow, your worries will be taken away when you wake up. Make these cute little dolls for yourself or your friend!

About the Instructor:
I am Preeti Agrawal, a craft blogger and watercolorist. In my work, I am concerned with experiments that combine old and new. I am drawn to the modern craft sensibility but at the same time the traditional arts call to me. I love the interplay of the two as I adjust traditional arts to new mediums and materials.

A concern for the environment and a reverence for nature pervades my daily life and my work: I save fabric, remnants, beads and the castaways of modern living and incorporate them in my work. Making things by hand gives me joy, up cycling, salvaging and repurposing materials gives me joy, as a result my crafting world is the perfect marriage of two!
