No-Sew Gnome Mug Cozy
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we make gnomes. All the gnomes all the time. And I gift them, oftentimes. So, when a friend’s birthday was coming up, of course I decided it was a grand idea to make a fun no-sew gnome pattern for a mug cozy for her!
You’ll also notice there are two versions…the red and black and the green and brown. Yes, I made one for myself. But also, I made it to show that you can make this in so many different variations that you can make it unique to your own tastes. So, if you’re ready to make a great gift of a no-sew gnome mug cozy, let’s get started.

Tips to Make This No-Sew Gnome Pattern
- Start by grabbing the no-sew gnome mug cozy pattern here. It’s super easy, and you can totally make it without using a cutting machine, but if you’d like to, you can download the pattern and SVG cut file set for Cricut or Silhouette here.
- Let’s talk gnome noses. I used polymer clay (a tiny bit of light brown with a fair lot more of white mixed together) and baked per the directions on the package. But you don’t have to do all that–I just did it because it’s convenient and I didn’t have anything else I wanted to use. You could use wood beads, buttons, pom poms, literally anything. Don’t feel like you have to go out and buy clay.
- What about that epic little beard? Now, I know that I USUALLY would say “oh, I love using faux fur with the long pile” but the deal is, this no-sew mug cozy gnome is a TOTALLY different project. I wanted more control over the fur and I wanted it to be a little looser. Reasons. So, I went with this fun (and insanely soft) eyelash yarn. It so soft and looks like fur, but it’s shorter pile makes for less furry fly-aways when you’re drinking your hot cocoa or coffee.
- Need a nice mug to gift with this fun gnome mug cozy? I found that making this cozy was so much easier around a straight-sided mug, so I grabbed these here–and the fact that you can use them for sublimation was kind of a bonus if I want to use them for future Cricut projects!
