Alice in Wonderland

Meet Alice. I’m sure you’ve met many variations of this little one before. But I am proud to offer you this week my very first Alice in Wonderland. Wee Alice is 6.5 inches, from head to toe. She is permanently attached to this box which is meant to be displayed on the wall. Alice has been made of muslin & fiberfill. She’s been painted & sanded a couple of times, giving her a lovely, aged patina. She’s been sealed with a combination of glossy & matte sealers.

Alice’s face has been painted with a variety of media. Her nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand giving her a perfect little pout just like my larger dollies. Her hands have been needle-sculpted as well. She sports tan painted gloves. She also sports painted brown boots with tan locks & blue laces.

Alice’s blouse is made of white muslin. It features hand-gathered sleeves & hand-stitching around the neckline and back. It is finished off with tiny, black seed beads. Alice’s apron is also made from muslin. Alice’s skirt is made from two 100% cotton prints & features hand-stitching along the hem in chocolate thread. Alice’s purse has been made from muslin & has been hand-painted, sanded & aged. Braided embroidery thread is used as the strap. It is not removable.

Alice’s tiny companion is just over 2.5″ tall. He can be removed from his Alice’s purse, although he finds this spot quite comfy.

Alice’s little home is full of charm! It is 4″ deep & has a diameter of 7.5″. I have decoupaged her box with various vintage papers. They were treated with acid neutralizer to prevent deterioration over time. Inside the box is painted the tiny door to wonderland partially hidden by a painted, blue curtain. The outside of the box is painted light blue & has been crackled & aged. “Alice” has been hand-painted on the lid surrounded by hand-painted lace.

A hemp string is attached to the back of the box, so that this piece may be displayed on the wall. The lid can be placed on the box or displayed alongside Alice, although no hanger is attached to the lid.
