There was once a shoemaker with his wife living in a village. But they were so poor that they have nothing to eat for the next coming days. They have nothing aside from a leather which will be good for a pair of shoes only. The shoemaker left it on the table so he could sew it by tomorrow. The next day the shoemaker was so shocked to see a pair of shoes, sewn so skillfully. They were already made and ready to be sold. The shoemaker was so very happy that with his money he bought a leather which will be good for two pair of shoes. He left it again on the table that night. The next day he saw again a four pair of shoes well made and so it went on.He now became a very rich shoemaker. One day he told his wife to hid that night so that they would know who really makes the shoes. They saw the elves dancing and singing while making shoes. The next morning his wife told him that she would make a dress for the elves for they were almost naked. The shoemaker was so happy to hear that and thought that it would be better to make a shoes for them too for their bare feet. They put it in the table and that night they hid again behind the curtain. The elves was so happy to see the shoes and dress that were made for them. They slip their clothes and skipped out of the window. After that night the elves were never seen again.
