Finally FINISHED !!!!!! (lots of pictures)

The Caterpillar
I had to cut the fleece apart into strips and then sew it back together to make stripped fabric then put the pattern on and cut it out. I was using my serger till the thread broke and I couldn't get it threaded back again to make ti sew correctly. I spent 2 days trying to figure it out but finally gave up. I still haven't fixed it.

The Cheshire Cat

The Birds: the Lory and the Dodo

The Queen of Hearts
The sewing machine(s) didn't like sewing the glued on sequins so I ended up sewing it by hand.

The Mouse

The White Queen and the Duchess

I had to have help sewing the costumes. I had my sewing machine break down (nest week I'll find someone to work on it since I've never had it serviced by anyone since I bought it 13 years ago) and had to have someone else sew the Red Queen's dress. I cut, and sewed Alice's dress one day at school so I didn't get a picture of it.

And here are the costumes in use
Please pardon the heads, I zoomed as much as possible but I didn't want to stand up in front of someone who might be taking a picture of their star/child.

The Rabbit and Alice
