Purchase calico or felt fabric in the color of your choosing, opting for light-colored fabric if you wish to add facial features to your Dammit Doll. Place two pieces of material together, and cut the body shapes using a basic doll pattern or your own design. Place the body pieces together with right sides facing each other, and sew along the perimeter, leaving a small area open. Invert the doll by pulling it through the opening to hide the seams, and add cotton through the hole to stuff the doll. Begin at the legs and arms, adding enough stuffing to create a firm doll.

Stitch or glue the opening to close it, and use waterproof felt pens to glue on the face. Glue on cotton for the hair along the head seam. If desired, print out a small poem from one of the original Dammit Dolls, and glue it to the front of your homemade Dammit Doll. The craft should be sturdy enough to hit or squeeze when you are stressed.
