American Girl Elf on the Shelf

I’ve been having a lot of fun making usual things for my daughter’s American Girl Doll lately. I did the Candy Corn Dress, which was very popular and now I’ve done an American Girl Elf on the Shelf outfit.

American Girl Elf on the Shelf

Isn’t this a hoot? We call it Ellfie on the Shelf, since her doll is Ellie. I started out by laying our doll out on some paper and traced around her to create the pattern.

Then I laid the pattern out on some red knit fabric. I used the arms of an old shirt of mine. I cut out both pieces, sewed them together, and then cut open a slit along the back to squeeze the doll in.

I made a simple hat to match and my daughter added a bell to the tip of the hat. The collar is made from white felt.American Girl Doll Elf on the Shelf Outfit Sewing Tutorial #AmericanGirlDoll #ElfontheShelf #Christmas #Elf #SewingforDolls

I know that Ellfie is busy planning and scheming for the upcoming Christmas season, even though she *thinks* she’s an angel!
