Alice's rabbit done




I had a busy day today , mostly boring household chores, I am afraid. But I had finally puzzled out how to dress my Alice in Wonderland rabbit. I went to the hobbyshop and bought some textile pens ( they are heat-setting) and simply drew the design onto white lawn. Of course, reularly dressing dolls, I always have that in my stash.

With the help of the pleater I made an Elizabethan collar . I had wanted to give him a trumpet,too, but the ones I had bought for him were too big, so he will have to do without. Still  , he looks a reasonably happy guy ( in spite of my obvious mistake in making him up :-) )

  2. He is so cute! It was a great idea to use fabric pens for the design and the collar is gorgeous!

    1. Thank you SaMiRa! And to think that I stumbled upon the idea via MSATminidolls, where they were talking minisuppliers (mostly fabrics, actually).Dharma seems to deliver nice products and while I was browsing there, I saw these and the ight went on/penny dropped :-)
