I finished them! I'm still in my pajamas and have barely moved off the couch all day but I finished them! These are a couple of very ambitious projects but I'm so happy with how they turned out. I'm going to start writing up how-to's for how to adapt the Elise/Elsa Elf pattern to make Clara and her little nutcracker. But be forewarned… it's not going to be a fancy, tested, designed, printed up sort of thing. It's going to be more a long run-on sentence blog post sort of thing, more of a discussion. So, this would be an undertaking for those who are cool with improvisation and, who are on board with spending lots of time in their pajamas sewing.
