I can’t believe how long it has been since I posted here. My health has given me lots of trouble this year, but it seems to be getting under control finally. I’ve had to take some time off work and I have used the time to make some exciting Christmas items for our shop. This is one set of three, so be sure to check back often so you don’t miss out. And now, on to the fun stuff.
The last two years we have had Christmas Elves in our Etsy shop. They have been a lot of fun to sew and we have sold more than we ever thought we could each year, having to cut orders off. I was dreaming elves! As we started planning our Christmas creations last summer, we had the idea to do a red and green striped elf this year. After hours and hours of searching through tons of watermelon, dolphin and sand castle print fabrics, I finally a Christmas stripe in the right scale! I ordered all they had and it arrived mid-July when it was 110* outside. It was a little hard to get my mind around Christmas in that heat, believe me.
But now, it’s really put me in the Christmas mood to sew these up for you. I’ve listened to a ton of Christmas music, drank hot chocolate and soon will be putting up our tree. To help you out, I found a video with 25 really cute ideas to get you started using you American Girl turned Christmas Elf. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zeh7iqqFpRE I also came across these great ideas to use our Christmas Elf in the classroom. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qM75oVTBTng And, they are not just for kids, either. Husbands, boyfriends, co-workers, neighbors, and friends really appreciate all the attention spent on putting this together for them and you can use most of the same ideas. Do 25 days sound overwhelming? How about using the 12 days of Christmas? Or use this to bridge between Christmas and New Years? No matter what you decide to do, start this family tradition this year.
