The weather has given us a slow march to spring, so we have had to create a little of the spring magic on our own this year. We begin with the shedding of the beard. Ivie gets to help cut the first layer.
After working on her outdoor fairy garden, Ivie left out some treats (dried fruit and pink lemonade) for the fairies to enjoy on the Spring Equinox.
They showed their gratitude by leaving a sweet pendant in her shoe for her to find the next morning.
The easter bunny’s helpers worked so very hard making bunnies for baskets this year.
The hand puppets are based on the tutorial by Purlbee. The sachets are from Craft Passion. The knit bunnies are from Little Cotton Rabbits. The plush bunny is based on the pattern from Chez Beeper Bebe. The applique on the t-shirt is just the simplest bunny silhouette that I could find on google images.
We were even prepared for the cold snap in late March with new fleece ponchos. What fun at Fabric World!
Inspired by the lovely eggs I saw at Blue Girl, I made some egg pouches for Grade 3. While they do look cute on their own, all piled together gives them what I call the ‘Enchantment Shop effect’. If you make 25 of most anything, it looks good!
The final school event before Spring Break is the annual Grandparents and Loved Ones Day. Ivie proudly shows off her main lesson books to her Grandma.
Spring also gave time for me to make my first and ninth bib for Craft Hope’s project 20: Hope for China.
So now the Nature Table Spring flower fairies are enjoying a bright spring break bounty!
