These are my two new 1930’s clowns. They were a birthday surprise yesterday from my husband! I was quite impressed with his shopping abilities 🙂 He bought them in Springfield, MO when he was on a recent trip to watch baseball and visit friends.
I love the fabrics, which are mostly novelty prints. The clown on the left is made from a silk or rayon sock and the one on the right from yo-yos (quilting yo-yos – the little gathered circle kind, not the toy on a string). I can tell already that they are going to be best friends with all of my vintage sock monkeys. 🙂

My name is Paula Walton. I’m a working craftsperson. I’ve been self-employed since 1986, when I started selling the items that I make under the name A Sweet Remembrance. Among other things, I am a doll maker, a dressmaker that specializes in reproduction women’s and children’s clothing, maker of spun cotton ornaments and holiday figures, and a freelance designer. Upon occasion I write magazine articles and am a Craftsperson in Residence. I teach and do demonstrations quite frequently, plus I was previously the director and curator of a small museum in Connecticut.
