1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Alice in Wonderland Plush Toy Piece on: April 25, 2009 06:05:38 PM
Thanks for the kind words,

the piece is made out of felt and all hand sewn. All those little checker boards are hand sewn, that took about 2 days just for that part!

There's no dowels in it, the base is actually a cardboard box that used to have one of those shelves from Ikea that you put on the wall, I think they're called a 'lack' shelf?  Anyhow, the piece sits perfectly on that shelf as its the same size.

The stalk of the large mushroom is a plastic jar, and the small one has a cardboard roll inside. All the rest is felt and polyfiber stuffing.

My sister got me the little motor from her work, they used them for displays.

The exhibit was called "Curiosity Often Leads to Trouble - A Tribute to Alice in Wonderland"

Here's some photos from it with other peoples Alice inspired artworks:

I made this in 2007 for an art exhibit in San Diego:

It's really big, 33 inches long

there's a few more images here: http://lookwhatemilymade.com/aliceinstitches.html

There is a hidden motor under the mad hatter so he spins around like the teacup ride at Disneyland  Smiley
