Martenici ( Martenizi) 2009

In spite of everything that's going on right now ( 2 sick kids, one sick mom) I've found the time to grant my son's wish of making him Martenicas.
I've even arranged with his teacher to present the Martenicas at school and the kids there are going to make some :-)So, I've put together little packages with pom-poms and some white and red yarn, as well as some googly eyes. I hope they like it!

Now these Martenicas are no-sew, made from pom-poms, some pipe cleaners ( somebody asked me about the size, I've used 6"), a little glue from a hot glue gun, some buttons, googly eyes, red and white cotton yarn, and some sparkly fuzz balls that I can't remember the name of.

If you are interested to find out more about what Martenica is, the traditions connected to it, you can try here for the Story and the Legend.

Here is also a step-by-step instruction on making the basic " ropes" ( with pictures):

And last but not least, here is a website of a friend of mine, she is making and selling martenicas n the US.

Now, here are mine:
