Cheshire Cat  Lantern by Fusainne Cheshire Cat  Lantern by Fusainne
In Germany, there was a holiday last week called Saint Martin. It's not one of these holidays you actually get off of work, but it used to be pretty popular among kids when I was younger (and before Halloween started to sip over from the US...). It's dedicated to Martin of Tours, who is said to once have cut his cloak in half to share it with a freezing beggar.
By tradition, children go on processions singing and with lanterns, often accompanied by someone on a horse dressed as the soldier Martin, and when they returning home, each two of them share a pretzel.
Anyway, this year I felt like crafting myself a lantern again, so here it is ^_^ I had lots of ideas actually, but most of them were way to time-comsuming right now, so I went with this simple design for now. It's the cheshire cat from Disney's 'Alice in Wonderland', who can vanish and leave his smile floating in midair.
Saidly I had no chance to acutally join a procession, because I didn't have much time and it was also raining a lot this week, but I walked through our garden a few times singing, which was almost as good xD

Cheshire Cat design belongs to Disney.
