Little Elves

Last Christmas I made Santa and Mrs. Claus two characters designed by Larissa Holland (mmmcrafts), and part of the 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' tree decoration collection. This year I made the girl and boy elves. The patterns for these delightful ornaments is availabel on Etsy UK. I also made the 12 Days of Christmas collection last year while away on holiday - details of my makes HERE.

Looking forward to making more of Larissa's characters for next year.
