Christmas Elves, what cute little elves they are

Christmas elves

These elves which were published in the McCall’s December 1986 Needlework Magazine are so cute and versatile. They are shown hanging on the tree, under the tree on a tree skirt as well as book ends. I made them in felt and placed tags in their hands for presents as well. What great cushions they would make from an enlarged pattern. Very easy to sew or paint as well, so would work up quickly. Their striped arms and legs would lend themselves to beads and laces for gift giving.

  1. How adorable these little guys & gals are! I love vintage & they’re right up my alley!
    I have a question though. Is the pattern for the ones with striped sleeves the same size as the one posted above, where each square measures 1-inch?
    Thank you so much for sharing!
