Everything Alice Book Review, Craft and Giveaway!

***Update! We have a winner! bunnysmommy!! Congrats!***

When I heard that there was an Alice book to review I jumped at the chance, and begged. I have loved everything Alice (how fitting!) my whole life.Everything Alice: The Wonderland Book of Makes & Bakes by Hannah Read-Baldrey and Christine Leech is a truly beautiful book. Even if you aren’t crafty but love Alice, this would still be a good book to own as the pictures and projects are stunning.I actually made two projects from Everything Alice to show you. The first one is so simple, even a non crafter can do it. No, really. It’s called Dress Me Alice and White Rabbit. This project is so simple, that you can even cheat a little, which I totally did. They say to copy the pictures and then glue them onto thin cardboard. I simply copied them onto white cardstock and cut out the middle man. The downside to this is that you really have to bend the spine to get the book to lay flat enough to copy it without shadows and stuff on the sides.



Paper dolls but even more fabulous!

I also made the Cheshire Cat handwarmer. I sewed it by hand and you can tell I am by no means a seamstress. It was fun to make though so that really is all that matters. I’m going to actually keep mine in the freezer for headaches.

The Cheshire Cat is my favourite character in the books so that project was a no-brainer. Now, for a chance to win your very own copy of this book let me know in the comments who your favourite Alice character is. One winner will be chosen at random on Feb. 13.

Alice Omega Necklace

Alice Omega NecklaceIn honor of the release of Alice: Madness Returns, here is a beautiful replica of the necklace that Alice Liddell wears in the game.  The Omega symbol is made of a hypoallergenic metal, and has been beautifully crafted by Etsian CaarigzkopfWorks. American McGee’s Alice was one of my favorite games, despite how difficult it was, and I am really enjoying playing through Madness Returns.

Through the Looking Glass Necklace

Through the Looking Glass NecklaceLewis Carroll’s Alice has always been one of my favorite literary heroines. She’s bold, bright, and bewildering all at once.

This necklace portrays Alice and the titular looking glass in beautiful brushed steel.

Both elegant and whimsical, it’s a “grown-up” way to show your continued love of the girl who made her way through Wonderland and beyond.

Made by the talented mother-and-daughter team of Penny and Nikki, this (and other Alice-themed creations) is available in their Etsy shop, Untamed Menagerie.
