Hi everyone! I'm JaNette and I recently made these little friendly garden gnomes. It's a really easy 30 min or less project. I used craft felt to make these but I'm thinking this might be a great scrap buster in the future!
There are only 2 pages to print for the patterns. The main body is nested for 3 sizes of gnomes. There are 3 different sizes of beards, 1 pattern for the face and 1 base circle that fits all sizes. Everything is clearly marked where to leave open for stuffing.
The placement for the facial features is also clearly marked on the pattern. I followed that for a few of them but I just eyed it and pinned for most.
I used embroidery floss for the eyes but you can machine stitch it all.
Then I filled them them with about 3 tablespoons of rice to give them some weight before stuffing in the polyfill. The last step was to ladder stitch them all closed. The instructions are included if you need help.
Tada! Super quick and simple! These will be a gift for my friend who collects gnomes so I hope she likes them!!
Until next time....
