Wow!  Do you have a day job?  Because this sounds like a full-time job in and of itself!

So my daughter's class was assigned to make items to sell at a school fund-raiser.  Each student was supposed to make 100 items that could be sold for a quarter or two.  She saw a tutorial to make stick puppets at Kleas website.

But she decided to make them into flower fairies!  We gathered up bamboo skewers, wooden beads, embroidery floss, and fake flowers and got to work.  The first 25 got made without even going to the store, and then we just had to get more skewers and tiny flowers for hats.



She let her sister and I help, and we had lots of fun.  (She also took the photos.)



I started calling them pixie-sticks.



We made 79 in all.  75 to sell, and 4 to keep.  (There were other items to make up the 100.)  Then we had to figure out how to get them to the market on the big day.  We finally decided to stick the sticks in a block of styrofoam.



We fit most of them!  It looked so pretty!



At the market, she kept the block under the table.  She put a handful at a time into each of two vases, which she could refill.  All the little girls loved them, and they sold out well before the end.



My girls are now making more puppets, so they can put on "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

I love seeing different iterations of a pattern.  Good work!  And you lucky duck to live near Tom Banwell.  I've been stalking his etsy for way too long.

Gorgeous!  Which sounds weird for a painting of an elephant, but that's the first thought that came to mind!

It's lovely.  Does it overlap at the side where it ties?
