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.

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

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
