Who Do Voodoo

Hey, this is Justin, Andrea's son. :P I was bored this Monday so I made one little voodoo type doll. I was inspired by Tim Burton's movies, like Nine.

I made one doll, that led to two, and then three. But I'm not very good with the sewing machine though. So, I just practice by making more and more dolls.

I hope to get better with da sewing machine, so I can make more stuff. Then I'll try my luck by selling 'em. So I know if its a good money maker. :P

and that my friends....is my big boy (14 to be exact)....love him!

I have to tell you....I love his dolls.

They're perfectly cute 'n' creepy....cuz I don't know about you guys....but dolls with button eyes and sewn mouths...is just plain creepy.

  1. Hey Justin. I am absolutely impressed with your voodoo dolls. Can I just tell you that you already sew better than I do? No kidding...I don't sew well at all and therefore let my mom do most of my sewing for me. Good luck trying to sell these. Major fun!

  4. Fab voodoo dolls - great work, Justin! I think you and my 14 year old son would get along great. He's pretty handy with a sewing machine and could probably give you some tips. He definitely sews better than me. p.s. Andrea, totally love this post!

  6. Justin, I think you've found something creative that a lot of people would be into today. Between Johnny Depp film fans, Alice In Wonderland, and Tim Burton, there are plenty of people who would dig these dolls!

  12. I think Justin should give it a go on etsy. I've seen less cuter and much creepier things sell like hot cakes!

    Your Friend,
