    Remember when I said any fabric can be used in a Boom swap? Correction: no clowns! lol I disliked them from early childhood but Stephen King's IT and Poltergeist sealed the deal for sure. They're all creepy, even the supposedly "cute" ones. Wonder why so many people feel as I do?

    Sewbiz the color you are seeing as pink is really almost rust and I do like that color. Have auditioned lots of different fabrics with it but nothing really jumped out at me

    Probably because you can't see their real face... it's distorted by the weird makeup. And they wear garrish clothes. Maybe the clown phobia is why you don't see them on fabric these days!

    I love clowns! A quick search for clown fabric only turned up this one. There's still clownfish fabric out there thanks to the kid movie..... But, be careful what you ask for.....

    Not far away from our summer place in Baraboo Wisconsin is the Ringling Brothers museum and circus. Many people in the area collect clowns and circus memorabilia. There are thrift stores in the area with a large assortment of circus stuff. I suspect when someone either moves into assisted living or passes away, family members just get rid of the stuff.

    My father was a Shriner and clowns were a big part of that organization, but dad wasn't a clown. I never felt creeped out by clowns growing up but as I am growing older they have a negative effect on me.

    Mona I think it’s an older fabric but thought it went well together. Tried some more greens but just couldn’t the right one.

    I was looking at clown fabric and they have some pretty scary ones. Yuck

    Here are 4 fabrics that I will be sending in this swap. They will be evenly distributed between both groups, and I am asking for bright matching colors with black or black tonal.Name:  MVC-001S.JPG

    Just a heads up, Guys....Connecting Threads is having a killer sale today. Lots of fabrics for less than $3 a yard. Lots of solids and prints. Needless to say, my order just went in.



    Edited to say: No affiliation, yada, yada, yada, I just love their fabrics.

    I just could not resist the urge to share with my Boom sisters. I do love their fabric.

    Loving these fabrics! Heading out of town for a couple days so I will catch up when I get back. My fabric has been sent. I am pondering the possibilities with all these lovely fabrics I get to play with. Have a great weekend everyone!
