Elf Mayhem.

Remember this pile of Elf parts?

Well it turned into these!!
One Elf is trouble but 5 of em
is total Mayhem.
The old adage of never work with children or animals
now has another connotation
NEVER work with Elves either.

I finally managed to round them up for a photo shoot 
on the Naughty Step.

And
In a row on the Stairs before 3 of them  left  
travelling  to their new homes with one of them going onward to USA.



Then
Fluff  very kindly posed the Question
Why are there no GIRL elves Mummy?
and
Learner Elves? You know  ones with e'L'f plates on?

So never one to shirk a challenge
let me introduce 
Elfette

and
e' L' f




Entering e'L'f  only  into the following challenges:

Pixie's Crafty Workshop #196 : Use up your snippets. (odds of material used up)
Craft Your Passion #281 Anything goes.
Rudolph Day #  any Christmas project.
Quirky Crafts #20 Sewn with love.

Sorry about spelling etc...on iPad as I am babysitting!

Donna said...

Ooh... I noticed that scrappymo said she was babysitting. Does this mean she can sit on the elves for you, too? I imagine an elf would be as good as good can be if sat on...
Hope they don't cause you too much mischief... and that an elf baby doesn't ever come along. Can you imagine how much work one of those would be? Scrappymo would have to sit on that one for sure!!!

Fabulous designs. You are super, duper talented :)

Some awesome elves from all your snippety bits, and can't think of a cuter way to use up this stash. Particularly enjoyed the introduction of Elfette & L Elf. Very clever, and the lucky recipients are going to be so delighted to have their very own little personally created Elf! TFS & Hugs

Kathleen said...

Ooo so nice to see the Elf back on the scene, hope he is coming to stay for Christmas again. Fabulous collection, but very worried why he wanted a girl Elf, could be trouble there Mrs A, start practicing to make baby elves.
