Tips to Make this Patriotic Gnome
- Based on my Icelandic Lovey Gnome Pattern here this gnome works up quickly with the most adorable little back bump. There’s more than just the pattern for this one tomte in here, too. I made 4 different gnomes, plus the optional arms, legs/boots and a reversible hat – all in one pattern!
- If you want a cutting machine to cut the fabric for the hat, body, etc., get the gnome pattern AND cut files for Cricut or Silhouette for the pattern. Great news for Gnome Makers batching out making several gnomes at once.
- The thick beard you see is a white, long-pile fur I love to use in my gnomes. If you are new to cutting fur, learn how to cut faux fur in this quick video tutorial.
