I made this elf doll for PJR107 in the Enchanted Forest Woodland Creatures Swap.  I knew she liked stuff like this.  His arms and legs are jointed w/embroidery thread.  I needle felted yarn into his head for his hair.  I stitched his eyes.  I blanket stitched his hat and shirt together.  His hat and shirt are upholstery fabric.  I thought it looked kind of woodsy.  Like tree bark.  The funny thing about his shirt, I did it upside down, and didn't know it until I had finished it, and was putting the pattern back into the magazine it came from for safe keeping.  Oh well, it still worked out just fine.  His body is made from green leaf fabric, and his head gray leaf fabric.  I really like how he turned out.  I wish I had taken a better pic of him.  You can't see his face.  Enjoy.

Beautiful. I like your choice of fabric for him and the green blanket stitch on the gold is gorgeous.
