Topsy-Turvy Red Queen with Alice (& mushroom!)

Made for a swap, this (these?) dolls were super enjoyable to plan and put together.

Figuring out how to mirror their dresses was really something, especially at the fold. I was so please with both collars.

They are each kitted out with so many fun little details, sparkly red jewel earrings for the Queen along with a glass rose pendant, silver crown, and red velvet bow.
For Alice, a key necklace, clock charm, and of course magical mushroom bracelet.

No pattern, just made up.


I love the shadowing around the eyes, and the lack of other features. They say a lot without their mouths.


I admit - I struggle with these little dolls - whichever one you pick, there is one covered up!

Thanks friends :blush:

@bethntim I hardly ever use a pattern for anything, I am impatient with all the steps and would rather just play around. You never know what you’ll end up with, sometimes it turns out cool.

Your doll is AMAZING! I agree, the dark coloring around the eyes is fantastic. It just adds so much expression to their faces. The little details of jewelry, crown, and mushroom are perfect. Well done!

Your topsy-turvy red queen and Alice have a “Coraline” feel to them- just slightly creepy- which is amazing! Highly creative !!
