I have been making the Elf I mentioned in my last post.
Instead of doing the sensible thing and buying the Christmas Book, I bought the spring one (because I wanted the rabbit pattern) and have been improvising from the Witch pattern.
The book is called 'Crafting Springtime Gifts' by Tilda.
What I failed to think about was the size of her nose.
It started like this..
but I thought it looked a bit big for an Elf and so did a bit of 'plastic' surgery.
I also made a bit of a hash of her shirt which was covered with a lovely pinnafore dress for the Witch, but looked a tad revealing on Evie and suggested she had eaten too many pies (or christmas puddings)!
After a few alterations, Evie is now suitably dressed for her duties of helping Santa and happily posed for a garden photo shoot in a sunny spell between the showers...
On the hedge.
Dangling from the Buddleia.
In the Rosemary.
In the bay tree.
And finally in the Holly Tree, ouch!!
