Ha! A blanket bandito. What a cute idea, and so splendidly executed. I've been told I'm a bit of a bandito myself, but of course I know that can't be true. lol

that cheshire cat is freakin' awesome! and i love that little hedgehog. hes adorable. nice stitching! 

Thanks Michele! I'm so glad you like this one. I love all your Alice stuff. I wish I'd had your Alice silhouette for this swap.

I am so in love with your cheshire cat!   Would you be willing to share the pattern or where you found the image?

PM coming your way Glitter Girl.  Smiley


Took me a little bit to realize the words on the cat.  Impressive.

Thanks James. I really appreciate the compliment. I didn't catch all the words the first time I saw the picture either. It's a great design. I'd credit the artist but I can't seem to find the site anymore.

Wowee wow WOW!

The Cheshire cat is phenomenal, and the Hedgehog is adorable! 

I bow to your creative brain and your x-stitching skills!

*blushes* Thanks so much Lisa.  Smiley

I really like this! What a perfect design for a bar. Great job on the stitiching, it's so neat and tidy. And the colors are a good choice too.

This turned out really well. I love the beadwork. I always have trouble with that.

I also think it would look good as a wall hanging for yoru kitchen. Or you could do a couple of other little designs and make it a mobile.

is it cross stitch?  and did you stitch all the pink/red background or were you lucky enough to find colored aida cloth?

The design is crossed stitched in black and white. I was lucky enough to find red Aida to stitch on. The background of the original picture was red and I was lucky enough to be Aida shopping around Christmas, so it worked out perfectly.  Smiley

I've never tried blackwork either but I've always wanted to. This looks like it would be a fun first project. I'm going to look for that kit.

You worked it up beautifully. He's so cute!

Thanks everyone, I think it's pretty cool too.

Did you design the Cheshire cat?

I found a picture with the design and converted it into cross stitch. I only had to do a little tweaking to make it work it converted so well.  Smiley

I just completed in the Alice in Wonderland craft swap so I thought I'd post pictures of the things I made.

First is a Cheshire cat.

The face spells "Alice in Wonderland". I did the eyes and teeth in glow-in-the-dark thread and it really shows up nicely at night. I wish I had tried to get a picture of it. I put the design on a laptop bag.

Then there is this little hedgehog I made. It says "Bean" because that's the name of my swap partner's pet hedgehog.

I hope you all like them.

Could you possibly post the site for where you got the dali pics?? That would be awesome....also, the cheshire bag is awesome!!

I'm almost embarrassed to admit this but all I did was click on Google images and type in "Alice in Wonderland - Dali" and took the pics off there from a variety of sites.

And I'm glad you like the Cheshire Cat. I like it so much I'm thinking of doing one for me.

Okay, I said I'd post tonight. I just didn't say that it would also be tomorrow.

I got the coolest package from Miss Whitney. There is so much awesome stuff I hardly know where to begin. There are going to be lots of pics so bear with me.

First up are White Rabbit and Rose brooches:

I told her I loved the image of the White Rabbit in his heraldic garb. Both are pins I can attach to my scarf which I shall post a pic of below.

Next is a pin made from a playing card (the Queen of Hearts, natch) and two pins with looking glasses. The background is a scarf with the Cheshire Cat stripes. I didn't get a great pic of it, it's kind of wrinkly since I've been wearing it nonstop all week. It's so warm and cozy and it goes with everything I have. I wore it to work and almost lost it to a jealous co-worker. lol I've been getting lots of compliments on it.

Then this lovely set of beaded earrings.

These keychains are so much fun. My particular favorite is Bill the Lizard and his ladder. Looks like Alice has given him the boot. Poor Bill.

And now for the most wonderful piece of all. A handpainted cup and saucer. The bottoms say "Alice in Wonderland Swap 2008"

Look at that White Rabbit! I swear, I had a tear in my eye when I saw him. This is the coolest piece I've ever seen. He's drawn perfectly and I especially love his little bunny feet.

A close up of the inside of the cup...

And a close up of the Rabbit...

I love this saucer so much. It's my favorite thing of all!

Thanks so much Miss Whitney. I can't believe you're new to swapping. You're amazing!
