Me die hendjes de lucht in, tralalalalalaaaa....

In our region of the country we can't escape carnival. We are not actually taking part, but the girls have to show up all dressed up at school, at daycare and in ballet-class. As a crafter I think I have to come up with a unique and mostly handmade costume every time. This year the youngest wants to be a flower-elf. The other one wants to be a spring-fairy. I decided to make a magic wand with felt flowers for both of them. But the daffodils and snowdrops took me so much more time than I had estimated. I don't have the patience to make more of those. I'll have to find another way to quickly finish the magic wands. Janne is knitting her own yellow necklace for the occasion. She's using a wonder-knitter, which works wonderful for a 5-year-old.

They really are beautiful though - so worth the effort. Did you use a pattern? Spring is ages away for us, so I have months to make some and put aside. Let me know when you get a moment.
