Introducing: Wonderland Wednesdays

I am finally finding the time to do a project that has been in my mind for awhile now- a weekly post dedicated to my plush designs that are inspired by Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland."

What better way to start off than to begin with Alice herself? As many of you know, Alice is a curious girl who finds herself in the mixed-up world called Wonderland, where she encounters all sorts of strange and fantastical characters.

I wanted to convey parts of the story through the fabrics that I chose. Alice has a flannel sweater with a mushroom pattern, which represents how she eats pieces of the mushroom and grows taller and shorter. Her shoes have hearts on them, indicating her run-ins with the Queen of Hearts/Red Queen. I also wanted to make her a little more modern in her dress, but still keep her somewhat "girly"- hence the pink skirt and bow in her hair.

Alice will be available in my etsy shop later today, and I will have a new character appearing here and in the shop every Wonderland Wednesday for the next little while, so stay tuned!
