This year I am determined to start some of my Christmas projects early instead of waiting til the last minute. Today I found this adorable free pattern on Wee Wonderfuls Blog. I am tracing these cute elves onto muslin and will embroider them before creating Christmas stockings for my niece and nephew and one for my grandangel. I plan to add a block letter monogram at the top for each child's name and I'm thinking about adding a toe and heel of Christmas fabric or ticking. (still to be determined) I can't wait to start stitching!
