Pattern Description:

Based upon those felt elves so many of us had in our childhood homes, this remix pattern combines the old style of the knee hugging felt elves with big eyed anime'/amigurumi type faces & non-traditional colors for an updated, modern appeal.

Each elf utilizes a small amount of yarn & stuffing and is relatively fast to create. Pattern includes 2 elf hat variations as well as a few clothing items/embellishments.

Also included in this pattern is a bonus design for a knee hugger Scottish fold ear kitty cat. All components are designed to be mixed and matched for your own customized version.
