Once again with time on my hands my mind turned to Christmas and the subject of gifts and stocking fillers. Amongst some of my most memorable gifts as a child was a clown doll which was hand- made for me by my nan. What made this gift so special was that my nan who i idolized for her sense of style and creativeness had put love, time and care into making this doll for me. With this in mind i rooted through my oh so messy fabric cupboard for remnants of cloth to create CHARLIE.
I found the pattern from a really really old Reader's Digest sewing book & changed the scale of the pattern. Charlie didn't take to long to create but required patience matching up all those curved seams.
Verdict: He turned out well.I like him. Here's hoping my neice & nephew's do. x
