Sweet Willie the Elf

This is Sweet Willie. I started him when Maggie and I had our play date just before Labor Day. I didn't get much work done on him that day because his slippers wouldn't behave. I used a free pattern by Lotus Vele from the files on one of my yahoo groups. I modified the feet so he could wear slippers and gave him 5 fingers instead of 4. I hope Lotus doesn't mind the little changes. His face was very easy and his expression is so sweet. He's ready to go to work in Santa's workshop.
















Here's a close up of his sweet little face.

I also made a doll for the FOCD ragdoll swap. She's finished and ready to travel to Colorado as soon as my swap partner, Jeanne, returns from her vacation next week. I will post pics of her and the one I receive when the swap is completed. Swaps are so much fun. Jeanne and I have been in regular contact since we started and I have made a wonderful new friend!

  3. Your little 'Willie the Elf' is so adorable. Lotus always does a great job with her patterns and I am sure she would love how you created him. Well done.
