Hot humid summer days are the perfect time to stay cool indoors and get a jump start on holiday crafts. When I came across a pattern for pine cone elves on Lia Griffith's website, I instantly fell in love. So fun to create, I keep making more to add to my charming elf family.
I added extra embroidery details to their tiny winter clothing and also used pinking shears and scalloped scissors. If you would like to know the DMC floss colors I chose, which match the felt, refer to the source list below. Felt colors, purchased from Etsy, can be found on Lia's site. I loved the colors she used, and purchased the same ones.
They're even cute from behind!
Perfect to gift a trio to a friend at Christmas, or for a unique hostess gift. You could also string a ribbon or cord through the top to turn them into ornaments. Hop over to Lia's wonderful site to get started on your own elf family.
