Christmas In July

It has been total Mayhem in our house all week
Everybody has been roped into help!
True we did actually know we had this job
to do back in January but then only 3 were needed.
Now it's 6 eek!
I will let the photo's do most of the talking.

Sammy is in charge.

Right boys lets get started.

I have all the pieces worked out and written down.

Are you sure you've worked it all out correctly Sammy?
My teacher says we have a bright one here.
(Erm I don't think there was a 'B' on the report I saw from school!!)

Careful Norm, those sissors are very sharp.

Right that's all the cutting out done.
Lets get started.

Ok. when I hit it

 Sew like mad!!

1 Elf down

5 more to go.

In case your left wondering. 
The exact body parts needed for 6 elves was 144.
(ask me how I know!)
