I wanted to make a beautiful Autumn gnome and this fall shelf sitter gnome pattern really hit that sweet spot. This has become a very popular gnome pattern with long legs to dangle.
This Autumn gnome uses the best selling gnome pattern I have ever made, the Scandinavian Sweeties pattern. The legs are an addition and you can either sew or hot glue this adorable fall gnome.

Fall Shelf Sitter Gnome Pattern
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I love making gnomes but when I realized I didn’t have any gnomes with dangling legs, I needed to create a few. The black and white striped fabric I had just called to me and, taking a chance, I found a way to make a truly elegant and fun fall shelf sitter gnome.

Tips to Make This Fall Gnome Pattern
- First, start by getting the easy gnome sewing pattern here. It’s an incredibly versatile pattern that can seriously be used to customize for any season or holiday. Plus, the gnomes that this pattern creates are just too darn cute!
- One of the best parts about this particular fall gnome pattern is the boots. Those aren’t just “regular” boots though – they’re FREE! You get the slopey boot pattern here.
- This particular gnome pattern is one of the most flexible I’ve ever made and consistently earns 5 star reviews. This pattern has specific directions to either make it into a bunny gnome like the one here, make a traditional gnome like this 4th of July gnome, or even make the curved hat without a wire like I did in this tutorial for a farmhouse gnome.
- I decided to add a little fall leaf action on my hat as a little touch of, well, fall. Unfortunately for me, though, there was not a fall leaf available to me that fit my aesthetic. So, I cut my own from felt. I made a cut file set here that you can cut on your cutting machine or you can print out and use as a pattern for your own leaves.
