Little Elves preview

Here's Little Elf Girl, the first design included in my upcoming new 'Twas the Night pattern. She's just coming back from fetching the letters in Santa's mailbox. It's cold out there!

...and Little Elf Boy, the second design included in the pattern. He's busy helping Santa to check off who's naughty and who's nice. You can customize the list to suit your own family. All nice I'm sure! ;-)

Toothpicks, permanent markers, gel pens, card stock, and a very fine tip writing pen will come in handy for the tiny accessories. You can use metallic felt, wool felt, or even card stock for the mail bag. Ooh or glitter felt maybe.



Both of these elf designs are almost final, with only super minor tweaks needed. I'll be writing the pattern and making the final samples next! All the samples will be in the two Benzie Design felt color palettes I've chosen for the series, Classic and Retro, but of course you can make your elves in whatever colors you like! 


Ah I see there's a helpful note on the back of the envelope. Santa's policy is 'trust but verify', little Tucker. :-)

  2. Oh my goodness, they are so lovely! I just finished the embroidery on the Colly Bird and the plan was to finish the 12 Days of Christmas first, but perhaps I can squeeze in an elf somewhere.

    1. Inserting elves in the middle of other projects is totally allowed! :-)

  8. Hi Larissa:
    I am so excited for the elves, are they almost ready? I have made several Mrs. Clauses for gifts and a Santa too, and I am anxiously awaiting this pattern to make these precious little ones.
    I wish you the best of luck to get it finished.
