* Off with their heads!

Posted on February 27th, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Toys (cat and kid).


I was going to make the painting-the-roses-red cards from Alice in Wonderland for Month of Softies. I’m not so into memes, but I couldn’t pass up this month’s theme. I Gocco-ed the card fronts and backs on white felt. The heads are made of wood beads, and they had little hoods and shoes of red felt. I tried to use pipe cleaner for the arms and legs and neck. Unfortunately, they didn’t look so hot. I ended up throwing the whole project away. Although the individual pieces were OK, they just didn’t come together at all. The Gocco-ing looked so good, too. Oh well. The heads still make me laugh.

    I actually was going to send them to you, since I took the idea from the drawing on your web page. Now I have to think up something else for present part 2 (part 1 I already have). Carroll’s illo is funny since the cards don’t have heads. Why would they be afraid of the queen?
