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:)!
