Introduction: "Martisor" Kids

About: Hi!! I really like challenges and handmade so here i am:). I also like childhood - this is were from i got the name of my blog (my real name is Ruxandra, or Rux - as i'm usually called:P).

These kids  represent a traditional Romanian celebration of spring and love. This occurs during the month of March and you can read some things about it here.
The tradition says that people give each other a red and white  string - simple or attached to a symbolic little thing such as a coing, a 4leaves clover, a little chimney sweeper, etc.
I've made a chimney sweeper, a young girl with a string in her hair and too little kidz dressed and having the hair in the colours of Martisor (red and white). And of course, the heart!

I've used the 2.5mm crochet, sc mostly, acryl and cotton, polyfiber (stuffing).
Hope you like them:)!
