Introducing Ellie! She is made from a hand-dyed pile fleece. The contrast fabric on her ears is from an old print fabric that I had lying around. She is wearing a paper party hat and holding a bright red balloon. I can imagine her ready for a day at the circus. Oh what fun! The sights and smells, popcorn, cotton candy and the beautiful and exciting animals! Those childhood memories........ She stands about 5 inches tall.
