Hello! i've not posted in here in a long long time -

I made an Alice in Wonderland display for an art exhibition a few weeks ago and thought to post it. It took 50+ hours and is all hand sewn.

Its 44 inches long by 11 inches wide.

The mad hatter spins around in a circle like the Disney teacup ride!

Hope you like it Smiley

  That is one of my most favorite books.  You do it justice!  How did you get the mad hatter to spin?

Okay, so rarely hardly EVER hit this rocks, and I just wanted to let you know that I just did.  This is truely amazing and the detail and time that you put into it has completely payed off.  I hope that you are very proud of the work that you have done.

I made it for a small art gallery in San Diego ( http://www.theartofframing.net/ ) that did an Alice themed exhibition -
about 50 artists made things for it, it was awesome - lots of fantastic paintings, drawings and some photography, and I think 2 other sculptural pictures.

So, nope, no competition, just an exhibition.

I think their next exhibition is Pee Wee Herman themed! Once I have the details i'll post it in the California/San Diego section in case people are interested.

Thanks for all the comments,
