Lily, The Christmas Elf...

Hello again! 
My second post for today...I'm on a roll. LOL
You may remember the ornaments I made last week to give to our friends who are moving soon.

If you clicked over to the Lily Sugar 'n Cream site, you might have seen the other pattern that arrived in my inbox. And if you saw it, you might have wondered if I was going to make it. Well, wonder no more, for I did indeed make Lily, The Christmas Elf. 

Enjoy...


I followed the pattern throughout the project, except for the hair. I added the bangs, using the same technique as for the hair. I think it looks a tad more "natural" (as if yarn hair can ever look natural). And I didn't even attempt to put the hair up into ponytails. Not that it was suggested, I just remembered the futzing I did for Lily Witch around Halloween.
I love the addition of the jingle bells. hee, hee.
There are a lot of fun details on this project, I think.
She's ready to join her spool elf friends, I think.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Only 3 more sleeps until Christmas. Wheeee...
