You've all been waiting with bated breath for me to ease your unsatisfied curiosity… haven't you … sure you have.
I started off with this odd assortment.
Whatever could she be doing with that odd assortment … you all wondered … didn't you ... sure you did.
Well there was method in the madness.
Hubby's work Christmas party was coming up … the theme … why oh why does there always have to be a theme … was "Carnival".
So Hubby decided he was going to go as a clown … and Hubby decided I was going to make his outfit … cause Hubby's thoughtful like that.
Then because he doesn't like anything to be easy or straightforward … he decided he wasn't going to be any old clown … he was going to be a laughing clown … and he had to look exactly like this.
So I started with this.
All would have been well with the world if he had been a normal, everyday clown … but no … he was a laughing clown … and none of the collars included in the "easy 2 hour" pattern resembled a laughing clown collar.
So then I had to become a pattern drafting type person … with absolutely no experience as a pattern drafting type person. In other words I had to wing it … BIG time.
I did a bit of a drawing … I pinned it on … I said a prayer … I crossed my fingers … I cut it out … I sewed it up … I hoped for a miracle.
I had to take care of a few other laughing clown type details.
And then all was ready for the great unveiling … drum roll please.
Will the "real" laughing clown please stand up.
Let me introduce you to Bizarro … the freakiest laughing clown you will ever see … ever … anywhere!
Scaring small children and taxi drivers … in a town near you soon.
