Elephants on Parade

I recently just finished this new design of another baby circus elephant! This time I made the little cutie balancing on a circus ball that I needle felted with lavender and pink roving.  I created the parasol from a cocktail umbrella that I added a bit of pink trim too.  I really like how this one turned out and I think it's one of the best pieces I've made to date!;)


I began looking up vintage circus images online and came across the cutest vintage chick and bunny circus postcard and was then inspired to create this little cute circus bunny.  I envisioned it with the chick riding on its back just like in the postcard but the first chick didn't turn out to my liking so I am starting fresh.  I plan to add it later.




There is a whole line of these postcards (Thanks for sharing that with me Patricia from http://www.mylifeunderthebus.typepad.com/ who was sweet enough to share with me some of the other designs!  (I went on ebay and was able to snag a couple!)
