10 Gnome Boot and Shoe Patterns
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are all about the gnome, tomte and nisse. Particularly little 20-minute DIY gnome patterns that you can whip out for any season. But not too long ago (ok, last year) I found I wanted something extra on my gnomes to make them pop–thus I started learning how to make gnome boots and shoes to add to my fun creations!
Now, not every gnome calls for little shoes or boots to tack on their bums–and some need legs to help support the whole look. But, sometimes gnome shoes are just the most perfect touch to really complete the look. So, if you’re ready to get these 10 fun gnome boot patterns (in one set), let’s get started.

Tips to Make Gnome Shoes From this Pattern Set
- Don’t get hung-up on your minor mistakes. Remember that making your first gnome was (or will be) very different than the 100th gnome. Practice makes perfect and the same goes with making gnome boots and shoes.
- My recommendation is, particularly with the no-sew gnome boot patterns, that you use a fabric or material that won’t fray. So, craft foam, felt, flannel or even fleece are my favorites. Although, I’m going to be really honest, felt is my top-pick for the no-sew gnome shoes. The sewn gnome shoe patterns, on the other hand, will work for just about any fabric (I even used minky on my shelf sitter gnome set here and they turned out sooooo cute).
- Make sure that, if your planned gnome is very small or very large, you’ll want to scale up your gnome shoes or down, as appropriate. But, if you’re going to do that, make sure that you scale all of the elements together, not just one piece of the pattern at a time–you run the risk of getting off and the pieces not fitting together correctly.
- If you are looking for a couple of gnome patterns to use your new gnome boots on, both my Tucked Gnome (no-sew gnome pattern) and my Cozy Gnome (sewn pattern, but great for beginners or experts, it’s so flexible) are sized perfectly for every one of these gnome shoe patterns. However, it is worth noting that I have found that typical sock gnomes are also perfectly sized for these boots (spoiler: I started my gnome boot making journey by just making them for sock gnomes), so you can pair those with these gnome shoes too!
