Circus

Oh, I so enjoyed visiting all your fantastic funfairs last week...
So can't wait to see your Circus tags!!
 As soon as I saw that the theme was Circus
the Big Top immediately sprung to mind.
I knew I had some red and white striped fabric in my little scraps box.
So another stitchery tag it had to be!....
I hand-stitched a little tent from the fabric..
added some fabric printed pics of  a Clown (LandofEnchantment) and tickets ...
red star bead...
Vintage buttons, crochet and lacy trim...
all edged with pom pom trim
finished off with seam binding and a stripy bead.
-oOo-
These little tag themes are really pushing me out of my comfort zone (In a good way!! ;)
I was just thinking...that these little pieces wouldn't exist with out the fun and interesting themes that Carolyn challenges us with each week :)
Thanks for Peeking!
