Reese, has been practicing Yoga, while on his extended vacation. He has to be in tip-top shape, if he wants to pull off all of his tricks and adventures. His favorite poses? --> Quarter Dog, Open Triangle and Warrior
I've wanted to make Reese more flexible for a while, but only found tutorials involving a snip of the Elf's hands and feet, or an invasive needle and thread operation. Well, guess what? I can't sew, in fact, I wouldn't be able to reattach a button to a shirt, if it came to it.
When I took out Reese the other day, I inspected his seams and found an easy way to insert bendy wires into his limbs, without cutting or sewing him back together.
Check out my other Elf posts, for printables, calendars, and ideas:
1. Take floral wire (any gauge) and gently insert into your Elf's arm, between one of the seams - just poke around until you find a looser area; I had the best luck at the end of his hands.
2. Once you thread the wire through and hit the Elf's shoulder, pull it back out a bit.
3. Snip off the excess wire, and gently push it all the way in, using either your finger or scissor tips. Repeat these steps on the other remaining limbs.
