The Macy's Elf Contest...

Macy's is doing a promotion right now ... it's called the Macy's Elf Adventure.  The elves are at each store, you pick them up by giving a secret code.  You can check out the details on facebook.

I went home and immediately knit mine a hat and scarf.  (and I wonder why I never get any housework done around here).

Next she got some yellow yarn braids.

Her outfit is modpodged fabric scraps.

I drew her eyes on with a black sharpie.  Her cheeks are pink felt.

For her legs I cut apart a sock.  Last of all I added some fake snow to the base.  I find out if I make the top 85 on August 25.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.

If you win, your elf becomes a hot air balloon in the Macy's parade. And you win a trip to New York City... http://apps.facebook.com/macyself/?cm_mmc=FrPS-_-fb-_-n-_-nhttp://apps.facebook.com/macyself/?cm_mmc=FrPS-_-fb-_-n-_-n
