Elf Napped!

I know ,I know, I know I say it every year and really do mean it at the time but circumstances just keep coming up.  Take this little tale for example.
Last year in the batch of 6 that I had  made ( which were pre orders) was one special order  namely for my Daughter in Laws Kindergarten  class. The children had great fun arriving each day to see what the Elf had been up to in the night.  Well my DIL was sorting through the boxes in the classroom  (a couple of weeks ago and found the box he should have been in only he wasn't!. A thorough look round and he was nowhere to be seen. Elf Napped!!   I got this story from my son as DIL didn't like to tell me what had happened.
So I have had a busy week and made my very last ever Elf who is now on his way up North and  I do most sincerely mean this folks as I have run out of red material.

  1. Hi Mrs A,
    oh how gorgeous is he.
    Now I wonder who kidnapped the last one.
    Could it possibly be the man that wears red and has a white beard.
    I expect he was short of elves this year to help with such agreat load he has to organize.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  11. Aw so cute! Wonder what happened to the first one? I smell a rat, or perhaps he ran away to sea.

  13. This one is a cutie and hopefully will stay put. I love his festive pants and hat and that hair is so fun. Elves are also green in case you want to keep making them!
