Matildas Door Hanging


Those clown masks have been scaring me for the last few days every time I opened my blog. I wasn't going to post till Wednesdays WIP update but I can't wait that long!

Here is a wall hanging I made for Matilda's door back in early 2005. Look at the difference from Grace's one done in mid 2003 here! This is from a Hot Possum's pattern. AJ recently finished one here and wasn't too happy with the face so I said I'd post some picts of how I did mine. Not that I am an expert, just nice to see how other people do it.

I have to add another one of these to my to do list for Christmas, as I have made every child one in my Mothers Group and regularly readers of my humble blog will know that we have just had a new addition, baby Caitlin, so I'll have to sew her one so she's not left out, which will be a joy as I love sewing these.

That is so cute! I have to say, I'm glad you bumped down the clown faces. They were kind of scary...and generally I like clowns! LOL!

Yay, the clowns have gone! Still can't believe you took the girls, I told you, our family doesn't do the Circus!
Wall hanging looks fab, remember you made Cate one too?

Thanks girls. Glad it wasn't just me who thought those clown masks were a bit too freaky!
