Tips to Make This Kissing Gnomes Pattern

  • Start by grabbing the Mini Magnetic Gnomes Pattern here. It’s got a great step-by-step tutorial along with the handful of pieces you need to actually cut to make this gnome in either no-sew or sewn methods. There’s even a bunch of tips that are super helpful, so the pattern is well worth it.
  • If you’d like to use your cutting machine to cut out all the pieces for you, grab the Mini Magnetic Gnome Pattern AND SVG cut rile set here. It’s not required, by any means, that you make this pattern with a cutting machine, but really, if you have one, this is the pattern to do it with because of all the tiny curves.
  • You can make your mini gnomes in any theme you’d like. I chose to make this set specifically for Valentines because, well, they’re KIIIISSSING! And also I found a fat quarter of fabric that I just really loved that went with the bright pink faux fur. I couldn’t resist. But you can make Scandinavian gnomes, farmhouse gnomes, little country gnomes, or even bee gnomes!

Active Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Difficulty Easy

Materials

Tools

  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue
  • (note: hot glue sticks for fabric do exist and should be used, if possible)
  • Scissors
  • Razor Blade or Craft Knife
  • Funnel
  • Wire Cutters, optional
  • Sewing Machine, optional

Instructions

  1. Cut two body shapes from the solid fabric, place them right-side-to-right-side then hot glue hem the curved tip part of the body, stopping well before the body straightens.
  2. Flip the body right-side-out, fold the tip of the body down and then fold the two sides of the body back around the tip, right-side to right-side. Finish hot gluing the two sides together leaving a 1-2 inch section un-glued on the top on one side.
  3. Cut one base shape from the solid fabric and hot glue it to the bottom of the body shape, then turn the whole body shape right-side out.
  4. Fill the gnome body with poly beads followed by polyfill. Fit half of a chenille wire into the pointy part of the body shape to help it hold it's curve, then hot glue hem the remaining opening in the body closed. photo collage tutorial of how to make magnetic gnomes that kiss
  5. Cut two hat shapes form the patterned fabric, place them right-side to right-side then hot glue hem the curved tip part of the hat, stopping well before the hat straightens.
  6. Flip the hat right-side-out, fold the tip of the hat down and then fold the two sides of the hat back around the tip, right-side to -right-side. Finish hot gluing the two sides of the hat together.
  7. Hot glue hem the hat's edge then tuck it over the tip of the body shape.
  8. Add a small bit of polyfill and a magnet to the center of a 2-inch square cut of pantyhose. Wrap the hose snugly around the polyfill and magnet and hot glue it in place.
  9. Cut the beard shape from the Mongolian fur. Hot glue the beard shape to the front of the gnome, then hot glue the nose to the beard, where marked on the pattern.
  10. Tuck the hat down low over the nose and hot glue in place, adding a bit of hot glue to the back and pulling the hat down low on the gnome's back.
  11. Make a second gnome and, instead of a beard, make little braids (very little) and attach them on either side of the gnome body. When you bring the two gnomes close to one another, the magnets will bring them together for a smooch! photo collage tutorial of how to make mini gnomes that kiss
