I can confirm that Mary Maxim at Yonge/Eglinton does carry some. They have drawers of DMC, as well as megapacks of another brand - that's what I got last time I was there.

I absolutely adore this. But there is something I need to say. This is all based on the Disney art. The original Alice (both in the book and the real girl she was based on) had short black hair and brown eyes and dressed very differently. This just makes me wonder how awesomely awesome an ami based off of the real thing not the Disney version would be!

Just to give a little shout out and a compliment. I have to say this. No one involved in Alice in Wonderland was on acid. Lewis Carrol was a pen name used by a British college professor who told this story to the daughter of a colleague over several weeks with her (Alice Lidell) as the main character.

I absolutely love this ami and look forward to seeing the rest of the series. Smiley


Actually, I didn't base her on anything 'Disney'. I'm a huge fan of Alice and in a lot of the older illustrations I've enjoyed (pre-Disney, there are A LOT of them), she is similarly dressed, with blonde hair. I really like that look, so that's what I went with Smiley

Thanks! I look forward to making the rest.. we'll see where they go

this is awesome!  I love the stripey socks.  I'm wondering - did you crochet the legs completely in the round, where you can clearly see the change in yarn or did you use a slip stitch so that each stripe is nice and smooth?  Does that make sense?

yeah, I know what you're saying Cheesy I usually crochet completely in the round - I don't tend to use the slip stitch because it leaves an ugly seam I don't like. So when doing stripes I always plan out the color changes so the 'offset' sections are at the 'back'. It's not very elegant, I know >_<

I don't think I posted this here before...it's the only amigurumi I've completed this year, but I plan on doing a few more in the Alice in Wonderland-inspired by gothic lolita vein. My next one is the White Rabbit. I've been too busy sewing, so my amigurumi has fallen to the wayside XD  

She is my first truly semi-realistic 'human' amigurumi. I think if I were to do it over again I'd change some of the proportions and try the face a different way. Maybe another version on the way? Her hair is made of cotton yarn and I wove each strand individually. Her bloomers are trimmed with lace, and her apron is sewn from cotton shirting Smiley

17.5" tall
