Did they say the sun would shine today, funny its raining and has been most of the morning, you can see the rain drops on the picture.
I made this back in the late 90's its from Anna Magazine but I can't remember which one and when I was sorting out the magazines the other day I did not find it, when everything is over I will have another look for the pattern, I want to keep the pattern not that I may never make another one but you never know.
It took a lot more ribbon then the pattern said, each piece was folded and then pined into place, on a polystyrene ring as the base. I brought a lilac piece of cotton and covered the top around down to the side and sewed that into place and then put the clown in to sit on the side. The clown was brought at Cheddar Gorge in Somerset. Then I added a thin piece of ribbon to hang it from and the ribbon then comes down the side in loops. I know it took many hours of work. Its been on my bedroom wall since and is still is over my dressing table today.
I wont be blogging very often over the next few weeks, I have a serious operation to go though on my eye, so if you don't see about much I will catch up with your blog when I can.
Until we meet again take care,
