Description

Smokey Robinson and the Miracles may have been inspired by this fabric when they recorded "Tears of the Clown." Bright red, yellow, green, aqua, and blue form one-inch teardrops and fab geometry on a white background. This 100% acrylic print has a bark cloth texture and is fairly lightweight for easy draping and sewing. The material is slightly see-through, as you can see on the second picture. Also see my listing for this same print in a lavender and orange colorway. This is vintage 1960s fabric from Japan in near mint condition. Approximately 42 inches wide.

CONTENTS: 100% acrylic
FABRIC: Woven, negligible stretch
TYPE: Barkcloth
COLORS: Red, Yellow, Mint, Green, Turquoise, Blue, White
WIDTH: 42 inches
USES: Dresses, shirts, skirts
CARE: Dry clean recommended

Available by the yard or by the meter. Most of these fabrics are not re-orderable, so when they're gone, they're GONE!

Ships worldwide within two business days. Buy more and save on shipping!

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
We accept all major credit cards and payment methods. Paypal and Etsy gifts cards are permitted. Cash and check are also honored for in-store pickup.

Returns & exchanges

Please contact the shop if you have any questions before ordering, or request a swatch under the swatch listing.

All sales on fabric by the yard/meter and cut notions (such as elastic) are final. Individually sold notions (such as buttons) that are unused may be exchanged within 30 days. Full refunds are offered in rare circumstances.

Neither exchanges nor refunds will be honored without contacting Ellesby first and explaining the issue. I will then advise on the acceptable resolution. Contact with Ellesby must be made immediately upon receipt of delivery or one week thereafter. Buyer is responsible for shipping costs of items returned to seller. All items eligible for return or exchange must be received in original, unused, saleable condition before return or exchange is to be honored.

Seller is responsible for shipping costs of replacement item. Preparation and shipping of replacement item cannot be expedited. Seller will alert buyer of estimated and actual shipping date for exchange, with no warranty for delivery date.

It's the internet, so it's hard to tell if you are getting what you really want based on a couple of pictures and a description. However, once you receive it, you should be able to determine if it meets your needs without more than one or two exchanges to get it right. Excessive return or exchange behavior will not be tolerated and may be reported to Etsy.
