Decorating For Christmas

A few weeks ago I spotted these Christmas socks and what I think must be arm warmers? maybe leg warmers? at a costume jewellery store.

These will become -----

Inspiration struck and I could see two outfits there. Turns out I was able to create more than just two!

My original idea was the two elf-ballerina outfits Peanut and Pumpkin are wearing.

Sneak peek

But I also managed to get the long stocking cap for Gourd and a narrow scarf for Hickory Dickory out of the same purchase.

We need a little Christmas right this very minute.

Hickory Dickory isn't much into getting dressed up so he's happy with the scarf. Shannon however is in the other room, naked, sobbing that she hasn't anything suitable to wear. I guess I better find something for her and take another picture, perhaps closer to Christmas and with my better camera. These blurry photos were taken in low light with my iPhone.

What great use of the fabric! I love those little dresses on the girls...:D

Thanks Jen and Randomfish. The two Christmas accessories were displayed together on a shelf and the minute I saw those ruffled arm warmers I saw the potential for Littlefee dresses.
