Down the Rabbit Hole.

''If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?'' ~Alice in Wonderland

And so it happened that an ugly abandoned armchair fell down the rabbit hole...

Down it went and its ugly paint and upholstery blew away.

Magically it became colorful and the flowers could talk and sing!

The roses had to be painted red, but please don't tell the Queen.

It ate a cookie and got a little bit rounder and bigger.

It got hearts to please the Queen of Hearts (and to save our heads in the process).

After many hours of patching, puzzling and appliqueing we created this truly wondrous armchair :)

Tadaaa! It has the Queen of Hearts...

The Cheshire cat with lots of hand embroidered details (the fur is vintage embroidery!).

Lots of flowers, tea cups...

 This chair is the craziest one we've made so far. It was super fun and we are very happy with the results. You can see more details at StarHomeStudio where this one of a kind beauty is available for purchase.
