My latest creative endeavor began as they usually always do ~ with a "Hey! I can make that myself!" moment.
This particular moment occurred over the weekend when Snowflake, Autumn's Elf on the Shelf, appeared. Autumn looked intently at Snowflake and said "I wish he were a girl".
So off to Google I went like a bullet, where I discovered that they actually do sell a little skirt meant to turn your boy elf into a girl elf. The problem was that the little thing was expensive for just a teeny skirt, and not very pretty (at least I didn't think so).
And this is how my latest mission came to be ~ my "Hey! I can make that myself!" moment. And that is just what I did. Out of felt, ric rac, a little bit of velcro, and a bow made from baker's twine.
Autumn was ecstatic when she saw her elf wearing the skirt, and it brightened my day to know that I was able to create something that could make someone so happy.
This skirt is in no way endorsed by the company
that makes the Elf on the Shelf. It is solely my creation.
The skirt turned out so cute that I've decided to offer it as a custom order in my Etsy shop! Click here for details!!
