Toddler Fashion Friday - Amy

Happy April! I thought I'd start the month off with something fun.  My boys are starting to tell jokes & try to pull minor pranks.  They are super excited that today is April Fool's Day.  In honor of this, I made a clown paper doll.

I'm pretty ambivalent about clowns.  Some people love them. Some are terrified.  I really just don't have an opinion.  With this set, I wanted a super cute clown.  I created some patterns specifically for this and I also wanted bright, rainbow colors.  And the hair had to big and bright!  At the last minute, I also added the white face & bright cheeks. Ultimately, I think that was a good choice.

I happen to love this.  I might make a boy version of this -- my sons have taken an interest in paper dolls but they really prefer the boy ones.  I think I can manage that!

Hopefully I'll have another installment of "Making of Mondays" this week.  That series is really keeping me on task with a paper doll set that I'm not overly enthusiastic about.  I think I'll get excited about it again.... Til then, enjoy this little clown paper doll!


  1. She's very cute, though I agree with your ambivalence about clowns. :)

    1. Thanks! I like making the toddler dolls. I feel like I can be silly with these.

    1. I'm glad you like it! I usually hate April Fool's Day, but my sons like it so I guess I'll have to come to terms with it!
