My friend and fellow book devotee, Amy Williams...aka squirrel momma...began recently making monster purses. As I was looking through her latest postings on Etsy, Frankie said, "Wow, that looks like the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland."
Short digression here: We recently had the joy of seeing the Tim Burton/Johnny Depp version. I do mean joy! I'm not a huge Tim Burton fan, but Alice is a glorious riot of sumptuous color and a fun movie. My friends know me to get on a soap box over the huge amounts of money paid to actors nowadays...but I feel Johnny Depp earned every cent they paid him.
Back to Monster purse epiphany: Frankie asked me to make him a black canvas messenger bag with the Cheshire Cat monogrammed on it. I'm surfing the web for the right bag..but here's the grin he wants.
I'll post the finished product soon...and leave you with this to ponder..
