So, I recently participated in the Gnome and Mushroom swap, and had the most fantastic partner ever, Doxie24_7 who made me this :



Which, is like the coolest zombie gnome I have ever seen.  Thats my daughter holding him.  She loves him, probably even harder then I do.

I liked him so much that I set out to make my own.  Except that mine didn't turn out like hers.  And I frowned. Scrapped the whole project. And set out to make my own gnome, inspired by Doxie24_7, but my own.



Thus was born, the Gnomedrops, named for there very rain-drop like shape.  And I freaking love them. And I'm addicted to making them.  The bottom (pants/dress) portion is actually pouch-like.  I'm making these for a Christmas craft swap, and I think I'm going to hide either little candies, tea-bags, or potpourri in them.



I used the tiniest black saftey-eyes I could find, and embroidered the eyelashes.  I learned pretty quick that you should embroider the eyelashes first.  The rosey cheeks are actually a pretty pink combination of various eyeshadows.  I like the effect. They are mostly filled with plushie-fluff (recycled from lumpy throw pillows) but the bottom quarter or so, is actually beans.  It makes them stand on there own.  They are about 8-10 inches high.

C&C welcome!
