I wanted to make a beautiful fall gnome and this fall shelf sitter gnome pattern really hit that sweet spot!
Fall Shelf Sitter Gnome Pattern
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I love making gnomes. And I realized that I didn’t have very many fall gnomes this year, so I set my mind to making some. But, I was drawn to a piece of scrap black and white striped fabric I had – it just called to me. Taking a chance, I found a way to make a truly elegant and fun fall shelf sitter gnome pattern with striped legs that are show-stopping.
The bonus is that this pattern has these adorable little slopey boots that I can’t get enough of. Just too sweet and perfect for this gnome. Grab your felt, friends and let’s get started.

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!
- If you’re not interested in breaking out your scissors for this particular craft, but you do happen to have a cutting machine in the craft room, grab the pattern AND cut file set for Cricut or Silhouette here. Perfect if you’re batching out while making several gnomes all at once!
- One of the best parts about this particular fall gnome pattern is the boots. Those aren’t just “regular” boots, though. They’re SLOPEY. I don’t know why that’s important to point out, but what really matters is that you can get the slopey boot pattern here. And these boots? They’ll work for so many shelf-sitter gnomes, you’re going to love them.
- This particular gnome pattern is one of the most flexible I’ve ever made. Initially, I wanted to make a bunny gnome with this pattern, and then I wanted to make a July 4th gnome and now this fall gnome. Seriously, 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. Conveniently for you, 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. Keep in mind that I did scale down the size of the leaves quite a bit, so you’ll want to do that too.
