A few years ago, lady in my home town messaged me asking if I could make a pennywise clown teddy for her son who loved him. I hadnt long started making teddies, so I had a search around for patterns and in the end I chose this one off Etsy.com.
The pattern is wonderfully written out and so easy to follow. The finished item was lovely and well made and just what the lady was after. I actually went on to make a few more of these for my cousin and a couple of other people.
I was not very good at the ruffles around his neck This was not the patterns fault, I hadnt long started learning different techniques so in the end I tweeked it to make it easier for myself. This didn’ look quite as good as in the pattern but it still worked.
I was also, at the time, absolutely rubbish at Pom-Poms. I had to get my nan to make my first lot of Pom-Poms for his chest. Then the second time I made the doll, I ended up just attaching strands of wool to the front of the doll and cutting them to make them look like Pom-Poms. But this way worked as well and was much easier. I have since invested in some plasticPom-Pom makers, which are so simple to use and make life alot easier.
