She Mad Hatter Dreams
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Barbara Ana Designs
You can trust cross stitch designer Barbara Ana to always come up with some new exciting idea. Here is her female version of the Mad Hatter, a bizarre person wearing a top hat whom Alice meets when she comes across the Mad tea party in Lewis' Carroll's Alice in Wonderland.
Like the original version, Barbara Ana's character is drinking a cup of tea wearing an oversize green hat. You'll notice the original price tag still on the hat bearing its price,10 shillings and 6 pennies.
While the pattern features some favorite motifs of Barbara Ana (padlock and key), the chart also includes many references to Alice in Wonderland, the clock, the cup of tea, the medecine bottle, the caterpillar.... Its carefully balanced range of subdued colors, and the style of the decorative motifs, are evocative of Victorian parlours of the time.
The text comes as a sort of conclusion in the lower part: "We are all mad here"
The round pattern will fit in a 10 inch hoop.
