The Elves and The Shoemaker

As a child I was fascinated with this story. If I remember right, the version we had was by Paul Galdone and the little elves that helped him were naked and he and his wife surprised them with
beautiful little outfits. I just loved it! I have also fallen in love with the simple process of making these adorable little shoes out of my wool. I have made a few for baby shower gifts and for my little grand daughter Elsie. They are addicting and so adorable!

Oh, I just loved that story, too! Can I just come live at your house for a few days and soak up some of your creativity? Or at least the pattern for those shoes?

I would LOVE to make a pair of these shoes for my niece. Did you make the pattern or could you direct me on where to fine one?
