This squishy farmhouse gnome pattern is perfect for a just-the-right-size gnome! You will be amazed at how quickly it comes together and with a little trick!
Farmhouse Gnome Pattern
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I have the BEST time making gnomes and sharing how I create them. Seriously, it’s more than just the cutie on the shelf, it’s the process of putting one together and making a little guy with love. So, when I had the idea for a simple farmhouse gnome with a curved hat, I knew exactly what I was going to do!
I loved making this sweet little gnome with his super fuzzy hat – it’s just so squishy and soft! But it’s more than that. It’s the little tied gloves on the wrist and his little booties. If you want your own, let’s get started.

Tips to Make This Gnome Sewing Pattern
First, start by snagging the easy pattern for the gnome sewing pattern here. It’s a versatile pattern that can make a cute gnome to fit any situation. Plus, it’s just too darn cute!
If you’re anything like me and would rather not cut all the pieces to make your farmhouse gnomes with scissors, but you do have a handy cutting machine, grab the pattern with cut files for Cricut or Silhouette here. Perfect for saving time by batching out the cutting when you’re making several gnomes at the same time! Note: do not use the cutting machines for the plush fur – it will clog up your works.
One of my favorite things about making this particular gnome pattern is the flexibility. Sure, the selection of fabrics and materials gives you oodles of options, but this pattern has the option 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.
There are all sorts of options for making this fun gnome so uniquely your own!
How Do I Make this Farmhouse Gnome Pattern?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial and the full farmhouse gnome video tutorial is here on YouTube.
- 1/4 yard Fleece Fabric, Color 1
- 1/8 yard Fleece Fabric, Color 2
- 1/4 yard Minky Fabric (similar to fleece color 2)
- Mongolian Faux Fur (or other beard material)
- 1 cup Poly-Beads (per gnome)
- 1 or 1 1/2-inch Wood Round (or other nose)
- Embroidery Thread
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue
- Razor Blade or Craft Knife
- Sewing Machine or Needle & Thread
- Large Darning Needle
- Pins, optional
- Cut the body shape, two arm shapes, four foot shapes, and a base shape from fleece color 1. Note the fold lines. Cut four mitten shapes from the contrasting fleece. Take care to flip two of the mitten shapes to ensure they match up correctly. Cut one hat shape from the minky fabric.
- Pin the body together right-side to right-side and sew it closed, taking care to note where it should be left open on the pattern. If you are sewing on feet, do not sew the base of the body on yet.
- To make the feet, pin two of the feet shapes together and sew along the "u" portion of the foot, leaving the flat portion open. Repeat with the second foot. Turn the feet right-side out and tuff some Poly-Fill inside, leaving the last 1/2-inch unstuffed. Tuck the feet inside the bottom of the body piece, toes pointed inside and toward each other. Sew each of the feet onto the front of the body only, going slowly.
- Pin the base onto the body, with the feet pointed inside the body, with the right side of the base facing inside (the right side) of the body. Sew the base onto the bottom of the body, taking care to go slow where the feet are already attached. Set the body aside.
- Pin the hat and sew along the long side, leaving the brim un-hemmed. Set aside. Fold the arms in half and sew along the long side. Set aside. Pin two mittens right-sides together and sew along the “U” shape, leaving the wrist open. Repeat.
- Turn the body shape, hat and other pieces right-side-out.
- Add Poly-Beads to the body, then stuff with Poly-Fill and sew the body closed.
- Cut your beard and mark the location of where you want the nose. Hot glue the nose (with the beard attached) to the body, then pull the hat down in place and tack it in place in the back, nose, and sides.
- Thread the large needle and tie a knot. Slide the needle and thread between the body and the hat and press it through (coming out of the hat) a few inches down from the point. Work the needle back into the hat and then back out through the hat just above the nose, creating a curve in the hat. Repeat, then tie off the thread inside the hat.
- Secure the mittens onto the ends of the arms, then pin the arms in place. Make sure the arms are aligned and hot glue the arms to the body, then hot glue the hat down onto the arms. Follow by hot gluing the hat down to the rest of the body, securing it well.
