I finished my elf I'm going to use on another Midnight Fantasy Garden block. I chain stitched his shirt to look like a knitted sweater. His beard is made of french knots and bullions. You can't really tell but his ears, nose and hands are outlined in black metallic thread. I think his shirt will glow in the dark.
And, if you look around my garden you may just see a few elves hiding among the flowers. Oh, and garden tip...fabric scraps make for good mulch. I put some of the scraps I collected all winter around the roses today.
