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. 🙂
