. . . And the mome raths outgrabe (post from Crafts by Alice blog)Thursday, October 9, 2008
I thought I would share with you this post that I wrote a few months ago on my Crafts by Alice blog. It will give you a clue as to which pattern I will be posting on Monday!
I had a lot of fun working on several Alice in Wonderland themed items this past weekend. You'll be seeing some of them in the shop over the next several months, but a couple were made for my own enjoyment, like this guy:
Remember the Mome Raths from Alice in Wonderland? Or Lewis Carroll's poem, Jabberwocky?
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe."
Well, this is my version of the little creatures. I used this photo from the Disney movie as my inspiration:
He was really easy to make. I whipped him up in a little over an hour by crocheting his body, attaching left over yarn for his hair, and adding a couple felt eyes.
Be on the lookout for some more creatures from the Tulgey Wood, coming soon!
