The Indian & The Bunny
Those of you who follow us here know that we like to do something special & home created for the kids for shrovetide. This year Frida Viola wanted to dress up like an Indian. I was happy with her choice and imagined something very natural - with undyed feathers, fur, bow & arrow and only natural colours. But I couldn't be more wrong in my perception. She refused even to try on the first dress I made. So today we ended up with this very colourful & very happy little Indian together with her tiny bunny sister (and a tired mommy that sew all night...) Luckily Molly was more than happy with the bunny costume we made for Frida Viola a couple of years ago - here & here.
