The Elves and the Shoemaker



There is something that I really like about little shoes, and I think it is because of the story of the Elves and the Shoemaker. It is the idea of a lovely new piece of leather (in my case felt) being left out at night, and in the morning there being a brand new pair of shoes. Although in this version I am the Shoemaker, and the shoes are elf-sized. 

These didn't do very well at any of my fairs, so will probably end up on my own Christmas tree. But the good thing is that means I also get the chocolates inside!

  11. You can never predict how craft fairs will go, it's a constant surprise. I love the story of the elves and the shoemaker, I'm trying to imagine you sewing into the night with only candlelight to see by..... ok that's going a bit far but you know what I mean :)

  12. I think the little shoes are so pretty. Especially hung on the tree, or tucked away in nooks and crannies to be found as a little surprise. Especially with the chocolates!

  13. They look so cute. Shame they were not selling well. At the least the public's loss is your chocolate gain :-)
