So, in all fairness to teapotdnky...I took my house elf hat & made a new thread. I made this for my daughter to wear (along with a pillow case dress I have yet to make, but will today) to the Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows book release this Friday night. The ears are floppy, but I think it works just the same.



And now she's tired of it, haha:


Comments=love.  Kiss

So here we go!! My little house elf!!

Here is the pillow case dress (which is much too big and I have to safety pin it in 2 places to get it to fit her, and I ended up cutting about 6 inches off the bottom).


And here is my little elf in full dress (before I cut the bottom off):




Really good shot of the hat & elf ears:

Completely rainbow obsessed SAHM to 3 & hoping to add #4 to our family this fall!

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

LOL, people are going to think you are a stalker. FYI, Kiggygraf is my bestfriend of 10+ years. There. All freakiness has been abolished!

The ears are adorable! I must make a hat of my own! You must post pictures of the entire costume when you're done!

WIPs-I promise to post a completed picture. My daughter goes down for a nap in about 35 min or so & then I'm going to start working on the pillow case dress.

dowhat-Thank you!!! Smiley

P.S. The ears aren't too floppy, right? I mean, it adds character to the hat right?

What a cute idea and a cutie to go along with it. I can't wait to see the finished pics. Sadly I won't be able to go to midnight release here for I have no way back home*cries* But I'll still get a book anyways though.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Well now that my little one has a costume, I guess I should make myself a hat as well. I don't know if I will make myself a sheet dress, because my husband might disown me...but my daughter can't go dressed up by herself!!
