Christmas Craft Elf
DescriptionHat – The first thing I made. I crocheted it, using the same granny square pattern as my 1970’s crochet outfit. http://www.cosplay.com/costume/498222/ I just wear it on the side so it looks like a tam. I also added a crocheted ball for a pompom.
Vest – I wasn’t going to buy a new pattern for this costume so I pieced things together. I used Simplicity 9328. But that vest was more of a halter top, so I used the back of the shirt for the pattern for the back of my vest. The material is a table cloth I found at a thrift store.
Skirt – I took 8 Christmas placemats I found at the thrift store, sewed them together, and ran an elastic through the waist band.
Blouse – Simplicity 3618. I mostly followed the directions on this one. (I’m known for not following directions wither sewing or cooking.)
Apron – Simplicity 3618. I made a different style pocket that I could put lace around. The lace is crochet.
