Thomas & Ellie Family

Thomas, Ellie and their family live on the northern hill overlooking the village. They love having days out for fun activities, volunteering to help out others and village events. They are popular in the village. Meira and Erwin were born and have always lived in the village. Will Thomas and Ellie inherit their wealth of knowledge and wisdom? Looks like one can be a little bit mischievous!

Double crochet in spiral with playful coloured or textured yarn around arms and legs. Long arms can be a great use or fun.
