I was inspired to make this hoopla from Stephen King's IT for my sister in law, after she found out that I love the story but have nightmares about the clown Pennywise. She works with children, so I thought she could hang it in her office for all the kids to enjoy Wink This was my first time using felt applique and while it looks a little rough I'm still pretty pleased with it! I stuffed the balloon with fiberfill to give it a bit more dimension. I mailed it off to her yesterday, I hope she likes it!

That is so awesome, the font you used is just perfect.  Creepily wonderful.

I love the idea of your sister in law hanging this in her office "for the kids to enjoy." XD

Gah!

Omigod that clown scares the crap out of me!

Never liked the damn thing... good job though! =)

like 16-18 years ago when I was a kid at my friends house we refused to goto bed so her mother let us watch this movie.. scared us to death.. we stayed up till 1am and passed out.. a few hours later her mother woke us up dressed up in a similar clown mask with a faux bloody knife and we went screaming up the kitchen stairs and wouldn't come down for hours, lmao.. good times ♥

Pennywise the Clown is the whole reason why my kids hate clowns and love horror!  Being a big Stephen King fan I would hang something like this by my bookcase.  Love it!

Thanks for all the love, guys! When I had the idea I was afraid it was just something silly that no one but me would get, so I'm glad I'm not the only weird one out there. Also, Evilkitten, your story about the mom dressing up as Pennywise is AMAZING. I can only aspire to be that awesome of a mother to chase my children and their friends around with a bloody knife someday.  Grin

OMG I almost cried when I saw this, it brought back all the nightmares I had about clowns when I was little.
I love the book but I can't bring myself to watch the film again (I was about 8 or 9 when I first watched it)
I hate both clowns and spiders and my brother thought it would cure my fear if I watched it, it is safe to say that it made it so much worse!

Even so the hoop is AWESOME, it will inspire fear of clowns in a new generation of children!!

lol After I saw the movie for the first time, I was also afraid of walking past storm drains. I always imagined that he was gonna reach out and grab my leg.

Anyway, the hoop is awesome! I really enjoy that movie. (:

Maybe I'm just creepy myself, but I think it's only creepy if you know the story. Since I do, it's totally creepy! Kids who don't know the story might just see a clown and a balloon.
I absolutely love it! The dimensional effect is so cool. I'm looking to try it on a hoop in the future.

Great, great, great job!!!! I still remember when the movie first came out. I think I watched the entire thing with the covers right under my eyes. Your quote sums up the whole thing. Tim Curry is the all-time scariest clown ever. Love the font of the text too.

So, so creepy... I watched IT for the first time WAY too young, and even as an adult it still creeps me out (especially that line).

Cute work, but I can't say I'd be able to have it in my office... I don't think I'd be able to go to the restroom without watching the sink for blood spatter.
