She Mad Hatter Dreams
CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY Barbara Ana Designs
Here is the 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 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 it includes some favorite motifs of Barbara Ana (padlock and key), the pattern 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.
A cross stitch pattern by Barbara Ana Designs.
