What’s a Birthday Party Without Clowns?

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. 🙂
