Fabric, wool and haberdashery
Getting ready for Christmas?
This growing trend from the USA is designed to entertain children in the weeks leading up to the big day. The elf on the shelf moves around the house watching you and seeing if you behave. Finding him in all sorts of places and scenarios; the fun is finding where he has gone now.
Come and learn how to create your own cheeky elf. This is lots of fun to make, and would also be a lovely gift for anyone. You will be taken through the construction process from cutting out with the supplied pattern, to then constructing using sewing machine and hand stitching. You will be able to give your outcome his character by stitching the facial details and adding the garments and accessories to your figure.
