My little Elf – Free pattern

Happy first of December and to celebrate I decided to create my very own little elf, as inspired by elf on a shelf. I’ll just have to find a nice cosy shelf now to sit him on. The finished Elf with his hat on measures 17″ from top of the hat to the bottom of the feet.

Tools:

  • Scissors (paper & material)
  • Embroidery sewing needle
  • Pins
  • Chopstick
  • A4 printer & paper

Using the back stitch sew the eyes in place on one side of the white felt face. Use the pattern as a guide for the eye positions. Use 3 strands of the black embroidery thread.
