Embroidered Guatemalan Worry Doll Iron-On Patch

This embroidered patch can applied to a pillow case so that you can share your worries with the doll before turning over your pillow for the night.

Guatemalan children tell their worries to worry dolls and place them under their pillow when they go to bed at night. By morning, the dolls have gifted them with the wisdom to eliminate their worries.

The story of the worry doll refers to a Mayan legend about a princess named Ixmucane. The princess received a special gift from the sun god that allowed her to solve any problem a human could worry about. The worry doll represents the princess Ixmucane and her wisdom.

MADE FROM: The whole patch is embroidered with cotton thread. The patch can simply be iron-on to attach it to fabric.
