Cute Gnome Ornaments Make Fun Gifts
Make Them Up in Felt or Quilting Cotton!
This charming little gnome can be made entirely by hand (or by machine, if you prefer). It’s perfect for working on during chilly evenings in front of a movie.
Add a hanging cord for an ornament to display on the tree or attach to gifts. It can also be stuffed into a stocking or combined with other goodies in a fabric basket.
Gnomes have long been part of Scandinavian folklore and have evolved into benevolent beings that deliver gifts at Christmas (learn more here). We’ve seen many cute renditions but this is one of the easiest to construct.
If you don’t like hand sewing, the felt can be stitched up by machine. Or, experiment with using quilting cotton. Add seam allowances and plan on turning the ornaments for stuffing so there are no raw edges.
The finished size is not provided by the designer, Elena Remova, but it appears to be 5″ – 6″ tall.
While any type of felt can be used, wool felt is likely to wear better. You’ll find a nice selection here. Or choose five 9″ x 12″ sheets of your specified colors here.
