Elsie – Faery Seam Ripper
Please meet Elsie, my house elf.
She holds the portkey to the sewing room of every doll maker in the world, and secretly travels around randomly, stealing sewing needles. If you are missing your needles, let me know.
Elsie was inspired by my daughter’s favorite character in Harry Potter- Dobby the House Elf. Now that the final movie is coming out… WELL… I’ve just got to get myself excited over here. I’ve read all the books to my children (bedtime story-reading rituals I know we will all cherish forever), and seen all the movies. Now we are looking forward to the grand finale, so we need a house elf of our own.
Elsie was made from my Tikvah pattern, but with Niamh’s wonderful big faery ears. She is made of quilter’s fabric, painted with gesso and ink. You can find both of those patterns in the shop.
Elsie hates shoes. So I polished her nails. She liked that. In the meantime, I think I’ll see if she will let me give her some shoes. I might just have to glue them on! In the meantime, watch out for missing needles…
