Congratulations to Sarah, Debbie, and Ke for winning the pattern giveaway contest! Thank you to everybody who entered! :)
Time for a doll pattern giveaway... times 3! If you'd like to make a sweet Christmas gift for someone, or try your hand at doll-making, there are patterns for beginners or experienced sewers. To enter, 1. like this post , 2. follow my blog, and 3. send me a private message with your choice of any individual Blue Whimsy PDF pattern (see Etsy store for options: etsy.com/shop/bluewhimsyetsy). I'll choose three winners Monday evening!
I've been wanting to create a pattern for a handmade Elf-on-the-Shelf-inspired doll for a few months, and am excited to have Hans & Holly Elf patterns complete and in the Etsy store! However, the concept of Elf-on-the-Shelf is not something that everyone loves. Recently I've heard people talking about Kindness Elves in favour of the more mischievous Elf-on-the-Shelf. It's an interesting thought - perhaps both versions could be a great way to evoke meaningful conversations with your little ones. Whichever version of the holiday elves you prefer, the Hans & Holly dolls are a perfect way to help build anticipation for the holidays! These patterns are great for ambitious beginner sewers, or intermediate sewers. The finished dolls are approximately 12" tall. Happy crafting as we enter the holiday season!
