handmade gifts 2013, part 1

Two pinecone elf ornaments for Tucker and Darcy. Haha, Robyn, yes, I copied you! We really love the pinecone elf ornament you made for us, so when I was trying to think of something sweet to make for the girls' little cousins, I kept going back to this.

I've wanted to try it for ever so long, and I even had all the materials in my stash. You can follow Martha's tutorial to make your own, although I should mention that I made some modifications. I made the hat larger to fit further over the bead, and I made the mittens and shoes smaller. I also widened the top of the shoe pattern so it would not be as flat after it's sewn together. And I added some floss hair because it's cute.

I'm glad to say that I didn't burn myself even once with the hot glue gun this time! Almost.
