Default Re: Any ideas for a Clown clippie?

google eyes,
red marabou hair wispies,
a hat (patterned or polka dot ribbon work well

and this is the cool part - fold about 4" of 7/8 double ruffle in half and stitch along the fold every 1/4" or so. When you gather it it makes a big ruffly clown collar. (It is also how I make a ballerina tutu clippie) Glue this to the bottom of the face and wrap the ends around and glue to the back.

If it wasn't almost 1am I would go take a picture, but It will have to wait until later!

Good luck!
I can't wait to see it...I have admired your bows before--any hints on the balet slipper that you make? My sister is turning 8 and I love that it is a little more grown up!
