You can be as creative (or not) as you want since nobody really knows what a gnome looks like for sure.
- Flesh tone flannel fabric for upper body
- Pattern flannel fabric for lower body
- Three types of yarn (hat, sweater, and sweater sleeve)
- Ankle sock for nose
- Two ankle socks for shoes
- Perforated Plastic Mesh for shoes
- Long Pile Fur for hair and beard
- Short Pile Fur for muff
- 1″-2″ ribbon for the drawstring
- Stuffed animal stuffing
- Stuffed animal plastic pellets
You can sew everything for the winter gnome by hand or using a combination of hand and machine (that’s my preference). The typical sewing supplies will be needed, although if sewing by machine, using both a piecing foot and a zipper foot is helpful. Also having sewing clips on hand is useful. Make sure you have something to mark your fabric in your sewing tool kit.
For knitting, you can certainly do it the old fashioned way. If you’re new to knitting, like me, you can use the LOOPS & THREADS® KNIT QUICK™ KNITTING LOOM SET and LOOPS & THREADS™ FLOWER LOOM.
