Christmas Elf Costume

A real live Christmas elf getting ready to deliver adopted puppies and adult dogs to their new, loving forever homes in the Lowcountry of SC.

Green felt was used to create the main tunic of this costume and used red felt to make the neck collar. I found this pattern online a couple years ago, I can’t recall where I found it but will post the site’s link as soon as I can find that info. I added a strip of white furry fabric onto the sleeves for an extra touch of Christmas cheer.

My daughter used one of her wide black belts at the waist to complete this adorable and super fun Christmas elf costume.

Rachel, my daughter, was the SPCA elf for Dorchester County on Christmas day in 2015 delivering newly adopted puppies to their loving forever homes. It was a wonderful day…a very Merry Christmas full of happiness and smiles……AND lots of wagging tails! 🙂

Dr Seuss Advent Calendar

I found this fabric panel featuring Dr Seuss’s Grinch at People Places & Quilts in Summerville, SC. I purchased a panel and made this advent calendar last Christmas for my friend’s children….and they LOVED it!

The Grinch is stuffed with cotton and travels daily across the numbered pockets. My friend told me that moving the Grinch was the fun highlight of every morning 😀

I just made 2 more of these Dr Seuss Grinch themed advent calendars to sell at a craft fair l’m in next week.

As you can see in the photos, this fun Christmas item is a super nice size!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit with Dr Seuss’s Grinch….Drop in again, I enjoyed your company 😀 There’s a spot below where you can leave a comment letting me know you were here.

Have a blessed, happy and creative day…… ~ Barbara ❤️
