I made her for Molliemoo2883 in the Gnome swap but she deserved her own thread!



Her clothes took me forever but i'm not very good at making them!

Is it odd that I see her, and I want to put her beside a stack of fairy tale books in my daughter's room?  She looks like a very good reading companion, if that makes sense.

She's adorable!  And you did an excellent job on the clothes - I really like her skirt!  Not to mention the pointy hat.

no, not odd at all! she is very magical and cuddly. She is made out of flannel and so is her skirt.

It must have been flannel with a really high thread count!

Wal-mart has some like that. Or they did last year. I have some green left over. It's good stuff. Hobby lobby has some too. It's comparably priced with fleece.

I love your gnome! she's so sweet looking! I agree with the good reading companion but she also looks like and excellent companion to have a long on a quest. Smiley
I am in love with her skirt as well. I would wear one in my size!

yeah i got it at lobby hobby. i saw them call it snugly flannel or something like that.
I made a baby blanket in other colors and it seemed super soft.

both the skirt and the top are from craftewoman's patterns.

Remember her? This is the first time I've seen her. You do lovely work. I'm especially impressed with the hair! Is that mohair? What was your technique?
My mom loved gnomes. The year the book came out I can't remember if I bought her the book but three of us went to the store that had the gnome wrap and had the same size box with similar wrap for her Christmas present! So funny!!!! Plus I found a cross stitch book and made a big picture for her. I have it now that she is gone. I was at one time hoping to make her a little diorama setting from the book. Never got it started tho.
Love your magic. For someone that had trouble with the clothes they look perfect to me. Definitely worth the work.
