Tips to Make This Holiday Gnome Pattern
Friends, I’ve made about 15 gnomes using this exact gnome pattern and let me assure you, it was made for a beginner!
- Can you sew this pattern? Yes, this is designed as a beginner gnome sewing pattern to produce a 10-12 inch tall gnome with arms and legs.
- Can you hot glue this pattern? Yes, however, there are some reinforcements you might need to make around the feet to ensure that the glue holds. Note: ONLY use fabric hot glue with this assembly.
- The trim options are endless. I get asked a lot about this trim and it’s called a couple of things: lamb’s wool fleece or Sherpa fleece. You can find it at craft stores where they sell fabric on the bolt (you only need about 1/8th of a yard and will have a lot left over).
- Can you make this gnome without the feet? Yes, they are 100% optional!
- Can you make this Christmas gnome without the arms? Again, 100% optional. When you see all that is offered in the Scandinavian Sweeties gnome pattern, you will be thrilled with all of the options you get!
