Some of the participants in the I Wish You a Merry Quilt-a-long on Facebook decided to make their angel block and elf instead of an angel. I knew I had to make an elf. What to do for a pattern? I googled "elf drawings" and up popped a tutorial on how to draw an elf. So I drew myself an elf with a few adjustments to make him easier to quilt.
Here's his face. I used a light cream fabric and decided to leave off the nose because no matter what color fabric I chose it looked funny. I think he'll have a quilted nose.
I had to make the hammer out of leather so it looked realistic.
The elf had to have the pointy shoes!
I love the way my elf turned out and I can't wait to include him in my quilt!
I hope you get to quilt today!
