Let your Art Guide you -Alice in Wonderland Pouch

Last week Emily from Art-n-sewl, invited me to participate in her weekly challenge.
I thought it would be a great motivator for me to get things finished and accomplished as I've been a little sluggish in making things for the shop lately.

1st up, another zippered "Scrappy Collage Pouch" featuring Alice in Wonderland and the Cheshire Cat.

This pouch was a lot of fun to make. I knew I wanted to use Alice and the Cat, but had a hard time looking for a good tree from my collection.

This one came from a 3 bears storybook themed print and I thought it did the job pretty well.

I love the polka dot background, it's a Japanese linen if I'm not mistaken -it's got a woven texture but is very soft. The pouch is nice and squishy from the batting and is quilted around the appliques.
This pouch is big enough to put lots of goodies in.
I stitched on a woven "wonder"tag, some black crocheted lace, and a few buttons-including a red heart on the back, from the Queen perhaps?

The lining is another two toned blue woven cotton. It's up for grabs in the shop ; )

This is wonderful! I love all things Alice, but the original illustrations from the book can't be topped!
