Tomas Aragon MD. from Mexico city on Aug 21, 2013
Greetings from Mexico.
I recently re-aquired this pattern again through a friend in the U.S. I purchased it initialy in 2006 but lost it in all the military transfers i was going through.. I am a Pediatric Cardiology Specialist traveling around the world helping kids. I use crochet as a way to get throught to some of them who have absolutely nothing in some of the countries I go to. They like Teddy Bears and for some reason, this clown. I make it stuffed and not a bank. I have made only one modification to the feet. The kids love these and I can´t seem to make enough of them. The problema I encounter is The availability of yarn in alot of the countries I go to..
Thanks for allowing me the chance to use this pattern for the kids. They really enjoy it and I enjoy making them..
If I can be of some service to you all, you have my e-mail.. Thsnks again..
