For the recent Disney Swap, I was crafting for the wonderful Amigurl55. One of her favorite films & themes was Alice in Wonderland, & she asked for a pillowcase. So I whipped this up for her! Cheesy I'd been ogling the technique of sketching with a sewing machine, & even though I don't have a cool free-motion foot, I decided to give it a go! I've also been on a macro-image kick, & thought it would be a fun way to re-imagine the Alice themes in a cool way.

Side A, going down the rabbit hole. Light blue & cream for Alice's dress, & three shades of gray & black for the spiral, gray for the lettering.

Side B, I'm late. Red for the white rabbit's coat, black for his tail & the letters, & a gold metallic thread for the watch.

It's all stitched through two layers of the white fabric & then pieced together into a pillowcase with french seams. Smiley It was a fun piece to work on for Amigurl! I hope you all have fun looking at it, too! C&C always welcome!
