Sew a clown out of cloth

A clown out of cloth.

• a piece of an old sheet or a soft cotton cloth
• a piece of colored cloth for ruffles
• paper for pattern
• buttons
• cotton for stuffing
• crayons
• yarn for hair and face
• a needle and thread

Draw a paper pattern for the clown body like the one on this page, but much larger. Cut it out. Pin the pattern to two layers of cloth and cut around it. Using a short stitch, start to sew the pieces together from Point A. Stop sewing at B.
This will leave an opening at the top of the head for stuffing. Look at the pattern picture.
Turn the clown body inside out so that the seams are inside. Stuff the clown with cotton.
Pack the stuffing into the arms and legs by pushing it in carefully with a pencil. Sew up the opening at the top of the head, using the overhand stitch.

Color the cheeks, the chin, and the forehead with crayon, if you wish.
Sew short pieces of yarn on the head for hair. You can also use strips of cloth for hair.
For ruffles, cut five strips of cloth, each about three inches wide. Fold, and stitch the edges together.
Pull the thread until the cloth bunches up. Sew the ruffles around the clown’s neck, arms, and legs. Sew buttons in a line down the clown’s front.

Cut inside curves stained glass

Cutting Inside Curves.
Inside curves are the most difficult cuts to score and break out successfully. Attempt the most difficult cut of a piece first, before cutting the piece away from the large sheet of glass.
1 Trace pattern B (pl9) onto the glass. Position the outer edges of the curve so they align with the edge of the glass.
2 Score the inside curve of the pattern piece but do not attempt to break it out at this time.
3 Make several smaller concave score lines (scallops) between the initial score line and the outside edge of the glass.
4 Using breaker or combination pliers, start removing the scallops, one at a time, beginning with the one closest to the edge of the glass. Use a pulling action with the pliers rather than a downward motion. Remember to position the jaws of the pliers at either end of the score line and not in the middle.
5 Continue to break away the scallops until you reach the initial score line. Remove it and proceed to score and break away the pattern piece from the large piece.
The tapping method of running a score line can be used, with care, to break out stubborn pieces.
