Green Alice

Nuno felted Stick Alice in Wonderland

Needle felted detail

Alice through the bubble wrap

I made this nuno felt to join in with the fun over at Artspark Theatre. The prompt is green, which is an indicator of renewal. Well 2010 is certainly the year of Alice in Wonderland.

I did not create the design. The design for my latest nuno felt belongs to Jamison Odone who will be releasing his 'retold, and illustrated book of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' on March 5th 2010 to coincide with the release of Tim Burton's Alice Wonderland film starring Johnny Depp.

I think that Odone's illustrations are fantastically clever. The cat reminds me Studio Ghibli's Totoro.

You can visit Jamison Odone's Wordpress blog by clicking on his name or on the book cover picture.

Hi Jasmine - that is lovely, I would be thrilled to receive it. In combination with the snowman below, I think you may have something with the story illustration thing...Just wondering if there are any drawings of your daughter's which could be made into felt at this time? Now I will go link it.

Jasmine said...

Glad you like it :)

You are right, I need my own designs. Nunofelting is so much quicker and easier than ordinary felting. I should make a character of my own or maybe do my own picture interpretations of ancient mythology.

You are doing really interesting things with this felt - can't wait to see what happens when you do your own designs - mythology sounds very exciting

Hi jasmine,

This is very fine needle felting. I think it's difficult to make because of the very thin lines.
Thanks, for becoming a follower of my blog. That was a nice surprise this morning.

Linda Sue said...

Yes TOTORO! I absolutely love this felting that you are doing1 It is totally awesome and fun! Felt can be such a serious matter to some...Wool can be sobering. Well done, YOU!

Karin Bartimole said...

Absolutely adorable! I am just loving your ability to draw with felting. The playful lyrical quality is so appealing to me. I am imagining a wonderfully illustrated felted book of your own, using this technique Jasmine! xxoo K

Hi Jasmine,
This is a lovely modern design of Alice in Wonderland and it works really well in felt.
I can't wait to see the movie with the handsome Johnny Depp!;)
Best wishes.
