Magical Dolls: A Poppet to Cheer You Up If You're Down

Magical Dolls: A Poppet to Cheer You Up If You're Down
Yesterday I blogged that I'd knitted myself a small doll, or poppet, in bright colours with a happy smile, specifically to cheer me up. You can see it in the picture above.

My doll's been propped up by my computer as I work, and it has been doing what I intended. I've always found that having a few cheerful little toys around my workspace helps me feel better, and that's been even more true during the worries of a year of pandemic.

I called my doll a poppet, which is the name in traditional English magic for a figurine or effigy created as part of a spell. Many people only think of poppets as being used to stick pins in as curses, but they can just as easily be used for healing or helpful magic, like mine is.
If you want to make a doll like it, I used a pattern from the booklet Jean Greenhowe's Little Gift Dolls. You can download other Jean Greenhowe doll patterns for free on the official website: Make sure you embroider a smiling mouth on the doll. To then enchant your creation as a poppet to cheer you up when you are down, you can do a spell. Cast a circle, then walk around it carrying your doll and say these words seven times:
By solid ground and fresh, clean air
By warming fire and water clear
By joy of spirit and all that's fair
This doll I make for comfort and cheer

There's more information about poppets in my book Pagan Portals - Poppets and Magical Dolls, viewable on Amazon and on my author page at publisher Moon Books.
