I made these recently for the Alice in Craftsterland swap (and there are some awesome things that were made for that swap by everyone).  I was going to stencil napkins, but the images were too small and I was botching them up, so I went for broke, took a fabric marker, and hand drew these Mad Hatter napkins from the John Tenniel images of the Mad Hatter.  I was nervous about it, but they turned out much better than I thought they would.  I may have to make a set for myself.

Those look fantastic! There are/were so many great items in that swap!
You really did an outstanding job on these napkins...I wish I owned them but then again I wish my apartment were big enough for a nice dining room table to dress up lol. 
Again, nice work Onyxnox!

Thank you everyone.  Yes, I actually drew them - very hard for me to believe it myself, that is why I am so happy with them.  I marked off a few things to make sure I had the proportions right and went for broke, but I had the pictures right there for reference.  I used Pebeo Setaskrib markers, and I have to say that I want to make more!  I have the glass markers too, and I am thinking of getting a plain tea pot and and cups, and doing an entire set to really make a Mad tea table.  I have an old garden table and chair set too, which someone broke the glass on (damn them, I was going to etch it!) but maybe I can make a decorated tile top for it with Tenniel Alice pics too!

These are incredible! I can't believe you hand drew them! Great job.
I think I might do this type thing for a housewarming gift.
Quick question, and this might be dumb: If you use fabric marker does it fade when you wash?

It is the Pebeo Setaskrib fabric markers, you allow them to dry and then heat set them.  This is my first time using the marker, but i have used their line of fabric paints for painting/stenciling shirts, and DH has a few I made him for Christmas and they have withstood washing well.  So long as they are heat set, they should be OK, if they are like the paints in the pots.

I love the third one so much.  I don't think I could ever bring myself to just start drawing, so well done!

I wish I could hand draw that well, unfortunately I'm much more craft than art.

I'm sure she was THRILLED to pull these out of the package!
