Stress Toys
Soft Dolls & Animals July 2003
These colorful creatures allow you to vent, relieve, and express your stress. (Of course, the best way to relieve stress may be making them.) Includes patterns for a screaming finger puppet, stretchable elastic fellow, squeezable stress reliever, huggable pillow with posable mouth, and a microwaveable hot pack.
Changin' Angels
The Cloth Doll Vol. 14, No. 2 (2000)
These adorable angels change from tree ornaments into dolls when you change their robes to playclothes. (Both attach with velcro, so they're easy to change, even for small fingers.) Includes step-by-step instructions and patterns for a boy, girl, robes, pants, and dresses.

Note: There is a pattern for a Carmen Miranda marionette by Steve Overton in The Cloth Doll issues Fall/Winter 1996 (Vol. 12, No. 1) through Winter 1997/98 (Vol. 12, No. 4) (it's a four-part series).
