A Few Test Samples: Cheshire Cat and the Caterpillar

I am working on some Alice in Wonderland patches.

This first one is the Cheshire cat. Keep in mind this is a test patch for proof of concept and not a finished product. There are some stitch issues and I totally boofed one of the color changes. It does, however, give you an idea of what it will look like. I went for the Disney-ish colors. This patch is a bit oval and measures about 4 inches long.

The other sample is an Urban Threads design of the caterpillar on a mushroom. It is also about 4 inches in diameter. (They have a version of some of the other characters, but no jabberwocky.)

I am not sure if I will be able to shrink them much more. I can probably get them down to about 3 or 3.5 inches. I think I will leave these large ones as sew on rather than iron on. They are made from very soft denim and would work well sewn onto a softer garment or a pair of jeans. Without the iron on they will move with the fabric.

Hopefully one of the designs will work for the purpose.
